Questions about COVID-19 rapid antigen tests?Information you can rely on about the safety and usage of the CLINITEST® Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Test

Rapid COVID-19 testing is an important tool in fighting the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Besides getting vaccinated, having information about your COVID-19 status is one of the most important things you can do to keep yourself and your loved ones safe. However, testing is always a key step in fighting the virus, and we recommend everyone continue to use caution, keep distance, wear masks, and wash hands frequently.

Your safety and peace of mind matter to us. In fact, it’s our top priority. So we want you to know that our CLINITEST® Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Test is safe and reliable when used as directed. The test is used thousands of times a day, by people from all walks of life, whose primary concern is to protect themselves and their loved ones from COVID-19.

The test quickly provides those who use it with a test result on a possible COVID-19 infection, which can help them make important daily decisions safely and confidently. Decisions about returning to work, going to the store, or sending the children to school.

Like most medical devices, the CLINITEST antigen test includes ingredients with unfamiliar names. And recently, some people have asked about those ingredients. In particular, there have been questions about the “buffer solution” included in the test. The fact is, the buffer solution consists of 99.7% saline solution. The other substances contained in the buffer are very low in concentration and can also be found in many other products, and often in higher concentrations than exist in this test. The concentrations of those ingredients in the buffer solution are far below the threshold applicable in European substance regulations.

Naturally, we ask that you follow the directions included with the test. But we also want you to use it with confidence because, short of a vaccination, our most important tool in the fight against COVID-19 is information. Like the information you gain by taking a CLINITEST antigen test: results you can use to protect yourself and your family.
