Today many different kits are available and it is difficult to make the right decision for your professional situation or at home
The prices are relatively low, so it is not necessary that you do not use this new home test technology that brought you.
In what types of samples are analyzed and how to collect?
The tests are performed on a small drop of blood taken by a diabetes lancet device or a nasal nasopharyngeal schwab. The small drop of blood can hurt a bit, the Schwab generally does not hurt, but it is uncomfortable for young children and, usually, cry.
We think that both are very useful and for children, the blood sample is often easier. Note that in the Accutrell test, the blood must go to the place in the sample cassette and the buffer in place B that is often confused with blood.
What tests are available and how to do the best option?
The PCR test is not for the home, but the antibody IgG IgG tests and antigen tests, such as the panbium or biocheet, are generally performed at home.
In the first days after contamination, PCR is better than antigen is better than IgM. IgG is the best option if you want to know if you have had and have an old infection and in the absence of antibodies and IGM symptoms means that you are:
- Sure not to be infected.
- Sure to not be infecting others.
How many housing tests are in a box and why are there so many?
Usually, there is between 20, 25, 40 or 50 tests in a box
With the prices ranging between 4 and 10 euros per trial, if it would be at low price to send only 1 test.
These boxes come with a bottle of buffer, so sending a test would increase the price of up to 30 euros for 1 test while prices pass from only 100 to 200 euros for a box.
The first test is useful to use a sample of white, so nothing to compare with your test. In both cases, you must add 2 drops of buffer and you need to see the C de Dark Control Control. I The C is not obscuring the test is deficient or expired.
If you hold a negative test with a blood sample or without sample in which the buffer run, you will see slight lines of antigen or antibody in positive places. This does not mean you’re positive. The dark line must be visible from above the cassette when it is placed on a table with normal lighting forms a lamp or daylight over it.
Do I need to be a doctor to perform the test?
To make PCR, it must be a biologist and have a very expensive sterile laboratory and thermocycler, but for the antigen or antibody self-test, it does not need any special ability. It is infecting very easily to see a YouTube tutorial or read the insert of the kit protocol.
The basic steps are
- Take a drop of blood or Schwab nasal
- Put the sample on the cassette.
- Put the buffer in the cassette.
- After 1 minute, read the result with their own eyes.
- If you need a test to travel, take an image of your result with your identification and date card and allow your sign for a witness or an official with place and date
What is the difference between the antigen or the antibody test?
The antigen is better to protect others if you are not sure if you have been infected
The antibody test is better to protect others and itself if you know it has been infected
Usually, as the PCR of the rule is detected as soon as in 2 days after the infection, a viral RNA that translates to DNA, the antigen is only detectable on 3 to 30 after contact and the IGM antibody begins Only on day 5. When you have positive IgM. It has been infectious for already 2 days, that is why PCR or antigen tests are preferred to protect their contact in an infection situation.
If you are sure that it is infected and you should know if you can infect others, since it no longer has symptoms, the IgM IgG antibody test is much better than the antigen test.
If you want to know if it can not be infected, the antibody test is better because when you still have IgG after 5 months, it is practically sure that you can not get it any longer and can not in the absence of symptoms and the antigen infect other people.
Should people who are positive IgG, negative negative, negative, negative antigen and negative PCR negative symptoms, wear a mask?
No, they should not. In official situations, even if it is obsolete masks, they are often mandatory to show good example. In private situations, however, it is very useful to know that you are negative IgM and positive IgG, as it means that it is in the absence of completely safe symptoms for you and others. Therefore, the test is also sold in boxes of 25, so you can prove you every 2 weeks and follow your progress from antibodies. You must take pictures every week of your antibody or antigen progress and prevent this later understand your COV2 story. The expiration date of the detection kits is 2 years, so, sure, in any case, you will find a use of the test 25 supplied in a box. It is not a question of yes or no, but an evolutionary question of its own test history.
What is the difference between an IGM or IgG positive result?
IgM is the immediate response. Remember M of the second and third letter immediately.
IgG is the answer after 10 days or more.
Positive IgM means that you are infectious
Positive IgG means that you have had an old infection and in the absence of IgM, PCR or antigen, you are safe for you and others.
When am I sure to have a negative test?
If you have been tested negative PCR after days after your last contact, you are sure
If you are negative antigen after 5 days after your last contact, you are sure
If you have a negative IgM after 7 days after your contact, it is sure, that is why antigen tests are preferred to IgM ancipode tests
If it is negative IgG 6 months after an old infection, there are cases in which people get this SARS for the second time, so IGG is a parameter for protection to be in that safe period for all in the absence of PCR , antigen and positive results of IgM.
Can I have only a positive IgG test?
Yes, this means you survived well and the old infection. If you do not have permanent disabilities from your viral period, this is a very good news! You are free to travel, work and help everyone.
Does two hurt to do a Covid test?
It hurts a little. The Schwab is a bit uncomfortable, especially for children and blood sample hurts only 10 seconds. I prefer to try children with a blood sample, but depending on the child and the shape of Schwab, some people prefer Schwabs.
Is there flu and crown tests that combine the 2 tests in 1 cassette?
Yes, this is a very useful test since many people mix the symptoms of the fireplace with the crown symptoms. Tauns Capillia has a very useful Combo Combo COMBO test and also have the best combustion self-test today available.
Are IgG tests better than antigen or PCR tests?
For new infections, PCR is better than the antigen is better than the IGM antibody. IgG is actually never used to detect new infections, never. IgG is used to monitor its immune protection to an ancient at least 7 days of infection of.
Are antigen tests better than antibody tests?
Yes and no. To know the danger antigen test is better and faster. Once you know, you have to prove the danger of infection. Even more after it has no symptoms, IgG is the only test that can provide you with this information. Conclusion: The antigen tests are better to detect the virus and IgG IgM tests are better to monitor the progress of the disease.
What testing producers are available?
- Panbio Antigen Abbott, 25 tests a box, 185 euros

- Lepu Medical Antigen, 20 Test a box 215 Euro
- Accutell Antibody IgM IgG 25 Test a box for 165 euros

Is PCR the best test?
Yes, because it detects as early as 2, 3 days after the infection, the virus, but due to a serious problem of the filter tips and the PCR reagents, the PCR is not available for all at 2021 2022. It is also A very expensive technique with prices of 100 euros a test, while rapid tests are only sold an average of 5 euros.
The PCR is slow, the results come only after 3 hours before or 2 days, while in 60 seconds a start test by a non-medical person is performed.
