What’s the difference between Medimap's rapid antigen tests and PCR tests?
Rapid antigen tests look for specific proteins called antigens on the surface of a virus (SARS-CoV-2). Although this method is less sensitive than PCR testing, it plays a crucial role in screening for the virus thanks to its accessibility and rapid results. Rapid antigen tests are also accepted by certain countries for travel, so it’s best to check the government website of the country you’re travelling to first.
PCR tests look for genetic material to detect the presence of SARS-CoV-2 and are indicative of an existing infection. These tests provide the highest rates of sensitivity, are performed in a lab, and are valid for travel to many destinations.
