Frequently Asked Questions What is the QuickVue At-Home OTC COVID-19 Test? The QuickVue At-Home OTC COVID-19 Test is an antigen test. Antigen tests are designed to detect proteins from the virus that causes COVID-19, in anterior nasal swabs. How accurate is the test? Based on the interim results of a clinical study where the QuickVue At-Home OTC COVID-19 Test was compared to an FDA-authorized molecular SARS-CoV-2 test, the QuickVue At-Home OTC COVID-19 Test correctly identified 83.5% of positive specimens and 99.2% of negative specimens. The performance of this test is still being studied in patients without signs and symptoms of respiratory infection and for serial screening. Performance may differ in these populations. What is the difference between an antigen test and PCR or molecular tests? 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 isolating at home. How long should I wait between the first and second test? 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 at least 24 hours and no more than 36 hours between tests.
