Flowflex Covid-19 Antigen Home Test is a rapid test for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 antigens in anterior nasal specimens directly from individuals within 7 days of symptom onset or without symptoms or other epidemiological reasons to suspect COVID-19 infection.
Qualitative detection of the nucleocapsid protein antigen from SARS-CoV-2 in anterior nasal swab specimens directly from individuals within 7 days of symptom onset or without symptoms or other epidemiological reasons to suspect COVID-19 infection. This test is authorized for non-prescription home use with self-collected anterior nasal swab specimens directly from individuals aged 14 years and older or with adult-collected anterior nasal samples directly from individuals aged 2 years or older. The Flowflex COVID-19 Antigen Home Test does not require serial testing.
The Flowflex COVID-19 Antigen Home Test was compared to an FDA authorized molecular SARS-CoV-2 test. This test correctly identified 93% of positive specimens and 100% of negative specimens.
An independent evaluation conducted by the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) RADx program has indicated that the Flowflex™ COVID-19 Antigen Home Test does detect the Omicron subvariant BA.1 and BA.2 in live clinical samples.

How Does the Flowflex COVID-19 Antigen Home Test Work?
Results are for the identification of SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein antigen. This antigen is generally detectable in anterior nasal swabs during the acute phase of infection. Positive results indicate the presence of viral antigens, but clinical correlation with patient history and other diagnostic information is necessary to determine infection status. Positive results do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. The agent detected may not be the definite cause of disease. Individuals who test positive should self-isolate and consult their doctor as additional testing may be necessary and for public health reporting.
