Frequently Ask Questions

Antigen Rapid Test (ART) for Individuals

ARTs are point of care tests that look for proteins on the virus surface. ARTs are cheaper and can yield fairly accurate results quickly within 30 mins. They involve using nasal swab from lower part of nose. They have a lower accuracy rate compared to PCR tests.

PCR tests detect the presence of viral genetic material in a sample. The process can take one to two days. This may not be feasible for pre-event testing. It can also be costly, and requires trained personnel and specialised equipment to administer. Swabs are taken from the back of nose, or the back of throat. PCR tests remain the most accurate tests available today.

What age must I be for Antigen Rapid Test (ART)?

We can conduct ARTs for persons of any age.

When and how do I get the Antigen Rapid Test (ART) results?

The ART test kit typically takes 15 to 30 minutes to complete. We will email you the certificate according to the prescribed format if your ART test is negative. Please note that this certificate is typically valid for 24 hours and should cover the entire duration of your event.

What happens if the Antigen Rapid Test (ART) is positive?

All positive ART results will require a confirmatory PCR test to determine if the person is genuinely a positive case. We will conduct a PCR test for you at our clinic should the ART be positive.

As the PCR turn around time is a day, we will not be able to provide certification for attendance at the event. You will have to isolate yourself at home prior to the release of the PCR test results.

What if the Antigen Rapid Test (ART) is inconclusive?

Our staff will repeat the ART on the spot for you. If the repeat test is still inconclusive, you may opt to cancel the test and you will not be charged. Please note that we will not be able to provide certification for you.

 Alternatively, you may opt for the PCR test which will take 24-30 hours for report turnaround. The cost of the PCR test will be charged in full and is not subsidized.

What is the cost of Antigen Rapid Test (ART) ? Are there any other charges?

The cost of the ART is $50.00 inclusive of gst. There are no other charges involved.

Should your ART result be positive, a PCR test will be conducted for you. The cost of the PCR test is $185.10 inclusive of gst and is not subsidized.

Is Antigen Rapid Test (ART) accurate?

The ARTs used in the pre-event testing pilots minimally meet the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) recommendation of at least 80% for sensitivity and 97% for specificity and have been evaluated by MOH. This means that they will be able to pick up at least 80% of individuals who are infected with COVID-19, and will show a result of 3% false positives in healthy individuals.
