A new rapid test for COVID-19 antigen for home self-testing at the Biosynex plant in Switzerland is now available in Hungarian pharmacies and medical device stores. The test can be done by each adult and can determine from a nasal sample whether the coronavirus is present in their body.
In another wave of the COVID-19 epidemic, the most contagious variant of the virus to date, the delta variant, causes the majority of diseases. However, the detection of a coronavirus infection is complicated by the fact that this variant often causes symptoms suggestive of a simple cold or allergy, with which we do not necessarily consult a doctor.
The rapid antigen test of Biosynex in Switzerland allows the detection of symptoms, e.g. cough, fever, headache, sore throat, eye irritation, gastrointestinal complaints, tinnitus, etc. – to be able to determine at home whether a coronavirus infection is indeed present. The test detects the presence of the virus by analyzing a sample taken from the nose on its own, and the tests show that it works with almost the same accuracy as the PCR tests: 97.2 percent matched the results of the Biosyenx rapid test and the PCR test.
One of the great advantages of the solution is that you don’t have to reach deep into your nose – just approx. The sampling device should be pushed in 3 centimeters – so it does not cause discomfort and can be used safely in children. It is important that the quick test is for adults only.
„If someone experiences symptoms suggesting a cold, they can immediately see if it is indeed coronavirus with a new quick test from Biosynex. In addition, it is worth getting the COVID-19 rapid test at your home pharmacy because the number of upper respiratory illnesses always rises when school starts, when children re-enter the community, and in this situation, it may be helpful to determine if the child is coronavirus within 15 minutes of the onset of symptoms at home. Since the use of Biosynex’s new antigen rapid test in Switzerland does not require a medical degree, it can even be a good solution for companies to test their employees regularly.He pointed out dr. Pipei Szilvia, the domestic distributor of Biosynex’s new COVID-19 rapid test, the managing director of Izinta Kft. In addition, Diagpro Home Kft. Can also market the Biosynex antigen rapid test in Hungary.
With the new product of Biosynex, the blue striped box antigen rapid test, the presence of coronavirus can be detected in up to 15 minutes, if the test result is positive, be sure to contact your GP. The COVID-19 antigen rapid test is already available in Hungarian pharmacies and medical device stores, with a suggested retail price of HUF 6,600.
The Swiss company Biosynex has also brought to Hungary a well-known orange boxed coronavirus antibody rapid test, which is also available to the general public, with which we can check our antibody protection against coronavirus.
