How Does a COVID-19 Test Kit Work?
The way in which most COVID 19 test kits work is as follows: a long swab is inserted into the patient's throat in order to swab the back of the throat. The same swab is then inserted into the nostrils and rotated to collect additional samples. The swab is then placed into a vial, which is sealed, labeled, and sent to a lab for analysis.
COVID 19 Testing Kit Sizes
In terms of size, most COVID 19 test kits provide enough supplies for one individual test to be carried out, so they're all quite similar in terms of size, usually containing a swab, a vial of solution to preserve the sample, and the necessary envelopes and stickers for sending the sample to a lab. However, some kits contain multiple tests, suitable for 2, 5, or even 20+ patients.
COVID 19 Testing Kit Types
There are a few different types of COVID 19 test kits. Rapid antigen test kits, for example, are used for specifically detecting the presence or absence of COVID 19 antigens in a patient who may have been exposed to the virus in the past. At-home COVID 19 test kits, meanwhile, are used for patients to test themselves at home for COVID 19. There are also nasal COVID 19 test kits which rely on nasal swabs, as well as other kits that take swabs from both the nose and throat.
COVID 19 Testing Kit Uses
The main use of a COVID 19 test kit is to test for the presence of COVID 19 in a patient. At-home COVID 19 test kits can be used by people to take their own samples to be sent off to a lab for testing, while other COVID 19 test kits can be used in healthcare settings like hospitals and clinics to test patients for coronavirus. These kits are very useful in determining the presence of the virus and helping to limit its spread.
