Rapid Ecotest COVID-19 Antigen Saliva Pen Test receives TGA approval

04-11-2021

There has never been greater need for accurate, simple to use, low cost, rapid testing to enable government, businesses, schools and families to defend against COVID‐19. Vaccination programs underpin our way through the pandemic, but rapid testing is vital if we are to avoid ongoing lockdowns.

Compared to the real‐time polymerase chain reaction test (RT‐ PCR Test), the rapid saliva antigen test kit enables us to screen for the existence of the illness of concern in a very short time. This benefit gives us the opportunity to test more people in less time. It is a major advantage in worldwide pandemics such as COVID‐19. Since many of the COVID‐19 symptoms are similar to those of the common cold, or other illnesses, COVID‐19 testing is required. The tests are conducted by Integrity Sampling accredited technicians trained in the correct use and interpretation of the test by health practitioners who are on call to provide additional assistance or advice, as required.

The TGA-approved test involves a pain-free and easy two minute saliva sample, with no nasal swab. Detection will occur within 15 minutes. It is point of care (POC) testing with easy‐to‐read visual interpretation.
