Results are available in as little as 10 minutes, in the privacy of your own home.

Do I always need to perform two tests?

The QuickVue At-Home OTC COVID-19 Test is intended to be used for serial testing or used twice by the same individual over two to three days with atleast 24 hours and no more than 36 hours between tests.

The PCR Test Versus Our Self-Test
An antigen test, such as the QuickVue At-Home OTC COVID-19 Test, detects proteins from the virus. Molecular tests detect genetic material from the virus. Antigen tests are very specific for the virus, but not as sensitive as molecular tests.
This means that a positive result is highly accurate, but a negative result does not rule out infection.If your test result is negative, you should discuss with your healthcare provider on whether an additional test is necessary and if you should continue to isolate at home.
Why Serial Testing Is Essential
COVID-19 serial testing involves one person testing themselves multiple times for COVID-19 on a routine basis, such as every day or every other day. By testing more frequently, you may detect COVID-19 more quickly and reduce spread of infection.
