Rapid Antigen Covid Test
The Covid-19 pandemic is entering its third year with no signs of ending. As the virus that causes serious respiratory illness continues spreading, it mutates into variants that evade actions we’ve taken for protection. As a result, millions have died, and many more will continue getting sick. While there are effective vaccines that keep most of us from getting sick and going to the hospital, the vaccines don’t stop humans from getting infected with the virus. The best we can do to prevent the spread is to understand how we spread Covid-19. Then we can take conscious actions to stop the spread and end the pandemic. To this end, 12 Panel Now is pleased to introduce the Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Test.
12 Panel Now is an authorized provider of the rapid covid test. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave the rapid covid-19 antigen test the emergency use authorization classification (EUA). This classification lets the test be distributed commercially to pharmacies and other points of care (POC) where the test can be administered. Additionally, only labs certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) can perform the tests to look for the SARS CoV-2 antigen in the specimens. SARS CoV-2 is the official name of the virus that causes the Covid-19 illness.

The serious respiratory illness known worldwide as Covid-19 is technically named SARS CoV-2. The “19” stands for the year it emerged. The “SARS” part of the name of the virus tells the story of where it came from. SARS stands for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome which first emerged in 2003 from Asia. Consequently, for nearly 20 years, the scientific community has been working on an antigen test for SARS. The result is a testing program that works.
What is an Antigen?
An antigen is a marker that shows the body is fighting off a foreign invader like Covid-19. The rapid Covid-19 antigen test can only be provided by prescription. Typically, the patient has had a likely exposer to Covid-19 and is showing symptoms. Then the healthcare provider prescribes the covid 19 rapid test. However, the patient must have been exposed or showing symptoms no longer than 5 days. The nasal swabs can either be collected by the patient or the healthcare provider. Remember, the tests can only be run in certified labs that have the right equipment. This is crucial because the lab needs to know if there are antigens present in the collected nasal swabs. Antigens are the body’s signs that it is attacking the virus. The patient must be tested 2 times with at least 24 hours between collections. Two positives mean the patient has Covid-19.

At 12 Panel Now our mission is the commitment to providing customers with the best possible service.

When Should I Take the Rapid Covid Test?
As an authorized distributor of the covid-19 rapid antigen test, 12 Panel Now supports the federal government’s distribution of the rapid covid test. However, supplies are still subject to limitations due to things like supply chain issues. That said, it is important that the rapid covid test be given only under specific conditions. These conditions will be diagnosed by a healthcare professional. Remember, we all want to stop the community spread of covid-19. We do this by staying away from those already infected.
If You Have Covid-19 Symptoms
The virus that causes Covid-19 is part of a class of other viruses that causes similar respiratory illnesses that are not as severe. For example, symptoms of the common cold and the flu can cause similar symptoms. Consequently, our healthcare system cannot test for every cold and flu outbreak.
External Quality Control Test Procedure
1. Remove a new Swab and Test Device from their packaging. Place the Test Device on a horizontal (flat) surface for running the test.
2. Hold a new COVID-19 Antigen Positive Control Vial vertically and open the cap.
3. Dip the new Swab into the Positive Control Vial, making sure that the Swab head is fully submerged in the solution. Roll the Swab head around in the solution to ensure the swab is wetted. Remove the Swab from the Vial.
4. Test the Swab immediately performing the same steps as described in section “Test Procedure for Patient Swabs” above.
5. Repeat all the above steps to test the COVID–19 Antigen Negative Control Vial.
