A Clinical Performance Evaluation of the SARS-COV-2 Direct Antigen Rapid Test "DART"
- Adult, age 18+
- Provision of signed and dated informed consent form
- Subject with COVID-19 clinical symptoms as determined by clinician referral to the Hospital services
The current standard test used to diagnose COVID-19 often takes a long time because of the way the test needs to be processed in the laboratory. In many cases, it can take hours to several days to get the result of the test. A rapid assay, like the test being studied here, that does not require sophisticated laboratory equipment and techniques could make it much easier for doctors to screen and ultimately treat patients, as the results can be obtained faster.
