For the actual test procedure please follow the instructions in the Package Insert. Before you begin the test, it is important to read and follow the detailed instructions in the package insert.
- WILL THIS TEST HURT? No, the nasal swab is not sharp, and it should not hurt. Sometimes the swab can feel slightly uncomfortable. If you feel pain, please stop the test and seek advice from your healthcare provider.
- WHAT ARE THE KNOWN POTENTIAL RISKS AND BENEFITS OF THIS TEST? Potential risks include: Possible discomfort during sample collection. Possible incorrect test results (see Result Interpretation section). Potential benefits include: The results, along with other information, can help you and your healthcare provider make informed decisions about your care. The results of this test may help limit the spread of COVID-19 to your family and others in your community.
- WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ANTIGEN AND MOLECULAR TEST? There are different kinds of tests for COVID-19. Molecular tests (also known as PCR tests) detect genetic material from the virus. Antigen tests, such as the Flowflex COVID-19 Antigen Home Test detect proteins from the virus. Antigen tests are very specific for the COVID-19 virus but are 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 whether an additional molecular test is necessary and if you should continue isolating at home.
- HOW ACCURATE IS THIS TEST? The performance of Flowflex COVID-19 Antigen Home Test was established in an all-comers clinical study conducted between March 2021 and May 2021 with 172 nasal swabs self-collected or pair-collected by another study participant from 108 individual symptomatic patients (within 7 days of onset) suspected of COVID-19 and 64 asymptomatic patients. All
subjects were screened for the presence or absence of COVID-19 symptoms within two weeks of study enrollment. The Flowflex COVID-19 Antigen Home Test was compared to an FDA authorized molecular SARS-CoV-2 test. The Flowflex COVID-19 Antigen Home Test correctly identified 93% of positive specimens and 100% of negative specimens.
- WHAT IF YOU TEST POSITIVE? A positive test result means that antigens from COVID-19 were detected and it is very likely you currently have COVID-19 disease. There is a very small chance that this test can give a positive result that is wrong (a false positive result). If you test positive you should self-isolate at home per CDC recommendations to stop spreading the virus to others. Please consult the CDC recommendations regarding self-isolation at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus. Seek follow-up care with your healthcare provider immediately. Your healthcare provider will work with you to determine how best to care for you based on your test result(s) along with your medical history, and your symptoms.
- WHAT IF YOU TEST NEGATIVE? A negative test result indicates no antigens for COVID-19 were detected. It is possible for this test to give a negative result that is incorrect (false negative) in some people with COVID-19, and negative results are presumptive and may need to be confirmed with a molecular test. This means that you could possibly still have COVID-19 even though the test is negative. If you test negative and continue to experience symptoms of fever, cough and/or shortness of breath you should seek follow up care with your healthcare provider immediately. Your healthcare provider may suggest you need another test to determine if you have contracted the virus causing COVID-19. If you are concerned about your COVID- 19 infection status after testing or think you may need follow up testing, please contact your healthcare provider.
