    What the health authorities say about the Abbott Panbio™ COVID-19 Antigen Self-Test

    As of 13 January 2022, the Abbott Panbio COVID-19 Antigen Self-Test is one of the seven test kits approved by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).

    According to the Abbott Global Point of Care website, clinical evaluations with 102 self-test users shows that the Panbio™ COVID-19 Antigen Self-Test “correctly identified 100.0% of negative samples, and 95.2% of positive samples”.

    What to do if you test positive

    If you test positive for COVID, contact your primary healthcare professional and follow current MoHFW guidelines on isolation and quarantine.

    If the rapid antigen test results are negative and symptoms continue, head down to the nearest clinic and undergo an RT-PCR per ICMR Advisory. You are also advised to continue following MoHFW’s guidelines for self-isolation and consult your doctor.

    About at-home COVID tests

    At-home rapid COVID tests — also called antigen tests — detect protein fragments specific to SAR-CoV-2. It’s a convenient way to test for COVID-19 without needing to leave your home or find a testing center. It reports results in as little as 15 minutes but isn’t as accurate as a PCR test.

    Rapid tests are most accurate for those experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. While the false-positive rate is very low, the false negative rate is up to 50%.
