  • Rapid Antigen test (15-minute results): This test identifies viral proteins and has 84% sensitivity in detecting the SARS-Co-2 virus. This test is accepted by many countries as an approved test for travel. 
  • Rapid LAMP Molecular NAAT test (30-minute results): This test identifies genetic material (specifically viral RNA) using reverse transcriptase and has a 98% sensitivity. This test is accepted by many countries as an approved test for travel and may be preferable to RT-PCR due to its rapid results and low cost. 
  • RT-PCR test (1-hour, 4-hour results, next day): This test identifies genetic material (specifically viral RNA) using reverse transcriptase and has a 98% sensitivity.

Upon request, Lookout Health will provide the manufacturer-supplied data related to the sensitivity and specificity of the specific test to be used for such a client.  Clients should be advised that all rapid coronavirus tests may on occasion produce false-positive or false-negative results.  In the words of the FDA, “negative results should be treated as presumptive, do not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection and should not be used as the sole basis for treatment or patient management decisions, including infection control decisions.”  As a result, locally required and recommended practices, including social distancing and the wearing of facial masks, should still be followed.
