Repeat testing does not need to be performed if you have a positive result at any time. A positive test result means that the virus that causes COVID-19 was detected in the sample, and it is very likely you have COVID-19 and are contagious. There is a very small chance that this test can give a positive result that is incorrect (false positive). Positive results do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. The agent detected may not be the definite cause of disease. If you test positive with the INDICAID COVID-19 Rapid Antigen At-Home Test, you should self-isolate and seek follow up care with your physician or healthcare provider for additional confirmatory testing with a molecular test may also be necessary, if there is a low likelihood of COVID-19, such as in individuals without known exposures to COVID-19 or residing in communities with low prevalence of infection.
The buffer solution contains two different reagents that are hazardous ingredients that should not be ingested. Please refer to the Instructions for Use (IFU) for more information. Keep testing kit and kit components away from children and pets before and after use. Avoid contact with your skin, eyes, nose, or mouth. Do not ingest any kit components. The reagent solution contains harmful chemicals (see table below). If contact to the skin or eye occurs, flush with large amounts of water. If irritation persists or any substances were ingested, seek medical advice: https://www.poisonhelp.org or 1-800-222-1222.
Symptoms of COVID-19 may manifest within a window of 1 to 14 days after exposure to the virus. Common symptoms encompass fever, cough, breathing difficulties, fatigue, and a loss of smell and taste. There is a segment of the population that may develop severe symptoms, leading to outcomes such as hospitalization, intensive care treatment, lingering post-sickness conditions, and, in some unfortunate cases, fatalities. It's important to note that individuals with COVID-19 can remain contagious for up to 20 days, and they have the potential to transmit the virus even if they do not exhibit any symptoms themselves.
We recommended that you use the INDICAID® COVID-19 Rapid Antigen At-Home Test kit if you are experiencing COVID-19 type symptoms, such as fever, cough, breathing difficulties, fatigue, and/or loss of smell or taste. We also suggest you utilize a COVID-19 test kit if you have been exposed to someone testing positive for COVID-19 (even if you are ‘asymptomatic’).
Testing is also useful before or after travel, or even just to provide you and your family ‘peace of mind’ as you go back to the office, back to school, or attend events with larger groups of people.
Yes, our INDICAID® COVID-19 Rapid Antigen At-Home Test kit is approved for detection of asymptomatic infections. If you do not have symptoms and received a negative result, you should test at least two more times with 48 hours in between tests for a total of three tests. If you have a negative result, it does not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection; you may still be infected and you may still infect others. It is important that you work with your healthcare provider to help you understand the next steps you should take.
Negative: If the control (C) line is visible, but the test (T) line is NOT visible, the test is negative.
Positive: If the control (C) line and the test (T) line are visible, the test is positive. Any faint visible red-colored test (T) line with the control (C) line should be read as positive.
Invalid Result: If the control (C) line is not visible, the test is invalid. Re-test with a new swab and new test device.
Anyone age 14 or older can self test using INDICAID® COVID-19 Rapid Antigen test kit on their own, and an adult (age 18 or older) should collect the nasal swab sample from children ages 2 to 13 years old and then perform the test on behalf of the child. Note that this test kit is not approved for use with children under the age of 2.
Since reimbursement policies vary from one insurance company to another, we suggest that you contact your health insurance company to determine their specific policy related to OTC (or At-Home) COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test reimbursement. Our INDICAID® COVID-19 Rapid Antigen At-Home Test (OTC) is now eligible for HSA/FSA reimbursement.
If no control line shows up on the test, the result is invalid (even if any test line shows up). An invalid result means the test was not able to tell if you have COVID-19 or not. If the test is invalid, a new swab should be used to collect a new nasal specimen and the test should be run again, using all new test components.
Individuals at the highest risk include those aged 60 years and older, as well as individuals of any age who have underlying medical conditions such as high blood pressure, heart or lung disease, diabetes, or cancer. Nonetheless, it's essential to recognize that COVID-19 can affect anyone, irrespective of their health status, and can lead to severe illness, even in individuals who are generally considered healthy and low risk.
COVID-19 is a respiratory disease caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and can be transmitted through person-to-person interactions, including close contact with infected individuals or exposure to enclosed spaces where contaminated droplets or airborne particles.
Store the tests between 36-86°F (i.e. 2-30°C) until you are ready to use the test, and then make sure the test components are at room temperature when you are ready to conduct the test.
A negative test result indicates that the virus that causes COVID-19 was not detected in the sample. A negative result does not rule out COVID-19. There is a higher chance of false negative results with antigen tests compared to laboratory-based tests such as PCR tests. If the test is negative but COVID-19-like symptoms, e.g., fever, cough, and/or shortness of breath continue, follow up testing for SARS-CoV-2 with a molecular test or testing for other respiratory disease should be considered. If applicable, seek follow up care with the primary healthcare provider. To increase the chance that the negative result for COVID-19 is accurate, you should: Test again in 48 hours if the individual has symptoms on the first day of testing. Test 2 more times at least 48 hours apart if the individual does not have symptoms on the first day of testing.
All negative results should be treated as presumptive and confirmation with a molecular assay, may be necessary if there is high likelihood of SARS-CoV-2 infection, such as in an individual with a close contact with COVID-19 or with suspected exposure to COVID-19 or in communities with high prevalence of infection. Negative results 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.
