Independent health institutes in Switzerland and Belgium reported the following results from a preliminary trial of COVID-RAPID:
Percentage of People Testing Positive with COVID-RAPID test
|Days Symptomatic||Belgium (1)||Switzerland (2)|
|Covid-19 Day 0 – 6||28%||20%|
|Covid-19 Day 7 – 11||62%||60%|
|Covid-19 Day 12+||100%||95%|
This means that our test catches an average of 97.5% of cases after day 12 of infection. To API’s knowledge, Covid-Rapid is the only serology test on the market that has any significant data to support its accuracy.
