how to use GMATE Saliva Home Test Kit

Interpretation of test resultswhat to do if:

Intepretation of result after using GMATE Saliva Home Test Kit

(a) Positive result

Symptomatic or non-symptomatic person that got a positive result has to undergo RT-PCR test for the true confirmation of a COVID-19 case.

(b) Negative result

Only symptomatic people with negative RTK-Ag results shall be tested with RT-PCR.

(c) Invalid result

A re-test shall be done with a new sample (saliva) and a new test kit.

 

The RTK-Antigen Test is a screening tool, not a diagnostic tool!

  1. This test can only detect SARS-CoV-2 antigen in human saliva only, not other specimen.
  2. If the procedure is done incorrectly, it may cause inaccurate results. 
  3. False negative results happen if:
    1. the concentration of antigen in a specimen is below the detection limit of the test.
    2. the specimen was not collected or transported properly.
  4. Positive results do not rule out co-infections with other pathogens.

Therefore, due to its limitation in detection range and sensitivity, RTK-Antigen test is used as a screening test and RT-PCR is used as confirmatory test to define a COVID-19 case.
