Coronavirus testing

Testing for SARS-CoV-2 will help you decide whether it is ok for employees to return to the workplace or whether they should remain in isolation for a longer period to protect others. This will avoid the risk of SARS-CoV-2 infections when people come back to work. If you suspect a potential outbreak in your company or simply want to make sure your company is operating in a virus-free environment, it is a good idea to test your employees.

    Antigen test

    Antigen tests determine the presence of coronavirus-specific proteins in a sample. The sample is taken from the nasopharynx using a special cotton swab just as with PCR testing. Antigen test results are available within 15 minutes. Coronavirus tests are most sensitive when the amount of the virus in the body is at its highest – usually from a few days before to around five days after the onset of symptoms. Therefore, a positive antigen test result most likely means that the patient has recently fallen ill and is infectious to other people. The sensitivity of antigen tests is usually lower than that of PCR tests (especially in the later stages of the infection). In contrast, antigen tests are significantly cheaper than PCR tests and very useful then it comes to testing a large number of people in a short period of time (e.g. in a workplace) to quickly isolate those infected and reduce the risk of spreading the infection. This test is not suited for ending quarantine or when arriving from abroad. In the event of a positive antigen test result, the patient and people who have been in close contact with them should take an additional PCR test.

    Companies will receive a summary report on the results.
