FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked questions and answers on various topics relating to the COVID-19 test.

1. COVID-19 Test Definitions

1.1 What is an RT-PCR test?

RT-PCR stands for ‘reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction’. This test is considered the gold standard among available tests because false-positive results are extremely rare. False-positive means that the test detects you as infected when in fact you are not. The test swab is done by an oral pharyngeal or, even better, a nasopharyngeal swab.

1.2 What is a rapid antigen test?

The rapid antigen test is a so-called point-of-care test, which means that the sample taken is not sent to the laboratory, but is analysed directly on site with a special test kit and the result is available within 15–20 minutes. Here, the test swab is taken through the nasal cavity. Compared to the RT-PCR test, false-positive results may occur more frequently. In Germany, a PCR test must be performed after a positive rapid antigen test.

1.3 What is an antibody test?

An antibody test provides information about whether someone has already been infected with the novel coronavirus and whether the immune system has reacted to this infection by producing antibodies against SARS-COV-2. The antibody test can also be used to identify people who have been asymptomatic, i.e. without symptoms of the disease. The coronavirus antibody test is carried out quickly and professionally using a small amount of blood from the fingertip.

This test checks for antibodies to COVID-19. The antibody test is not used to detect an acute infection with the coronavirus and is not an alternative to the rapid antigen test or PCR test. Instead, the antibody test shows a reaction of the immune system to COVID-19, based on which a previous infection can be detected.
