The Rapid Antigen Test is completed by taking a sample from your nose using a swab.
The benefit of this type of test is that it can be analysed in our pharmacy rather than being sent to a lab. Because of this, you will get the result of your test within 15 minutes.
You will be asked to complete a consent form to allow us to carry out the test.
You will get the result of your test within 15 minutes. A positive result means the Covid-19 virus has been found in your sample.
In the event of a positive test it is recommended that you self-isolate. You should then contact your GP to arrange a HSE PCR Covid test.
If your result is negative, it means the virus was not found in your sample.
It is important to note that Covid 19 Rapid Antigen Tests are not 100% accurate. The tests we use are Roche SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Tests. These tests have a specificity of 99.2% and a sensitivity of 95.5%. More information regarding the test can be found here.
We can upload your results to the Health Passport Ap. This Ap will record all Antigen Test Results and Covid Vaccinations you have received. The Health Passport Worldwide ap can be downloaded on the Ap Store or Google Play.
