1. COVID-19 Test Definitions
1.1 What is an RT-PCR test?
RT-PCR stands for ‘reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction’. This test is considered the gold standard among available tests because false-positive results are extremely rare. False-positive means that the test detects you as infected when in fact you are not. The test swab is done by an oral pharyngeal or, even better, a nasopharyngeal swab.
1.2 What is a rapid antigen test?
The rapid antigen test is a so-called point-of-care test, which means that the sample taken is not sent to the laboratory, but is analysed directly on site with a special test kit and the result is available within 15-20 minutes. The test swab is taken through the nasal cavity here. Compared to the RT-PCR test, false-positive results can occur more frequently. In Germany, a PCR test must be carried out after a positive rapid antigen test.
