Panbio™ COVID-19 Antigen Self-Test Frequently Asked Questions for Consumers
What is an antigen?
Antigens are proteins that are part of the COVID-19 virus. If the test detects antigens in your swab sample, it means that the COVID-19 virus is present in your body.
What is the difference between a molecular, antigen and antibody test?
There are three main types of COVID-19 tests. Molecular tests (also known as PCR tests) detect the genetic material of the coronavirus. The Panbio™ COVID-19 Antigen Self-Test is an antigen test. Antigen tests detect coronavirus proteins. Antibody tests detect antibodies produced by your body‘s immune system in response to a previous COVID-19 infection. Antibody tests cannot be used to diagnose an active COVID-19 infection.
Will this test hurt?
The nasal swab may cause slight discomfort. It is important to follow the nasal swab collection steps as indicated in the procedure. Discomfort may occur if the swab is inserted beyond the recommended depth. If painful, slightly withdraw the swab to finish the sample collection process.
How accurate is the test?
The Panbio™ COVID-19 Antigen Self-Test has been shown in clinical evaluations, performed by healthcare professionals, to correctly identify 98.1% of positive specimens and 99.8% of negative specimens.
Can this test be used on children?
The test can be used for all ages. Children under 14 years old should be supported by an adult.
Will this test tell me if I have been infected with COVID-19 in the past?
No, this is an antigen test that only detects an active infection. Antibody tests can detect past infections.
Does the product expire?
The test has an expiration date printed on the box, and should not be used after that date.
Can I use my own swab or other swabs?
No - only use the components included in the test kit.
I'm pregnant. Can I use the test?
Yes. Pregnancy had no impact on the performance of the test, as described in the "Which interferences can occur?" section in the Instructions for Use.
Does this test detect the new variants?
Abbott is intently monitoring the mutations of the COVID-19 virus so we can ensure our tests can detect them, as we do with many viruses. We have conducted a thorough analysis of known variants that we’ve been able to study, and we are confident that our tests remain effective at identifying these strains.
Can I use this test more than once?
No – each test can only be used once.
How do I dispose of a used test?
Place the swab, tube, and test device into the included disposal bag. Seal the bag tightly. Throw away the bag in a waste bin.
What does it mean if I have a positive result?
A positive test result means that proteins of the virus that causes COVID-19 have been found in your nasal swab sample. It is likely that you will need to perform self-isolation at home to prevent the spread of COVID-19. A positive result does not rule out coinfection with other pathogens. Please follow local guidelines for social distancing to limit the spread of the virus and contact your doctor or local health department immediately.
What does it mean if I have a negative result?
A negative test result means that it is unlikely that you have COVID-19 at the time of testing. The test did not detect any antigens in your nasal swab sample, but it is possible that your test gave a false-negative test result. False-negative test results can be caused by several factors:
I'm feeling unwell but my test is negative, what should I do?
If symptoms continue and the rapid antigen test results are negative, individuals should immediately be tested by RT-PCR as per ICMR Advisory, as the coronavirus may not be detectable in the very early phases of infection.
You are also advised to continue following local guidelines for self-isolation and consult your doctor.
