The AMD Rapid test for coronavirus is a compelte kit for COVID-19 testing. It includes the test cassette, and single use pipette for blood sample taking. Using it is extremely simple and does not require any medical training.

Reading the COVID-19 test results
Accurate results can be expected in about ten minutes (internal testing shows up to 96% accuracy in results). The IgM test can be up to 96% accurate, while the IgG – 95%. Reading the results is as follows:
- Letter C – control line, lack of control line means that the test is invalid.
- Letter G – IgG test line, if it appears, and the control line is visible, then the test is valid and positive
- Letter M – IgM test line, if it appears, and the control line is visible, then the test is valid and positive
If either or both of the IgG and IgM lines are visible along with the control line – the test is positive. If either of both IgG and IgM lines are visible, but the control line isn’t – the test is invalid. Please note that even a very faint line still means the test is valid.
Note that this quick test is mean to be used only us a point of reference and on-field solution and its results are in no way conclusive. Extensive lab tests are necessary for a conclusive COVID-19 test results. Consult your doctor for further information
