Test Clinic wants to be transparent about the tests we use. For the rapid test, we use the: PANBIO™ COVID-19 Ag RAPID TEST DEVICE
This is an accessible, portable and scalable option for COVID-19 testing. The test has been validated by the RIVM and VWS.
Suitable for patients with suspected COVID-19 infection. The test requires no instruments and provides results within 15 minutes, making it a valuable tool for large-scale testing in decentralized testing facilities.
You should note that the result is based on a snapshot and that a negative result is short-lived (max. 24-48 hours).

Receiving a negative antigen test result means that there were no detectable virus particles with the rapid test at the time of collection. Note that a quick test is only validated to know if you have COVID-19 if you: have corona-related complaints and want to know if you are infected with the virus or if you want to be tested without complaints on or after day 5 of the quarantine. If the result is positive, we recommend that you perform an additional PCR test. The rapid test is not validated if you have no complaints and therefore does not always give a reliable result, you DO need to go into quarantine immediately according to the guidelines of the RIVM, at least until you have a PCR test result. In case of a positive result, we are obliged to report your result to the GGD in the region where you live. For more information, consult your GGD, for example the GGD-Amsterdam.
