iHealth COVID19 Antigen Test Kit FAQs

 

  • Will the iHealth COVID Test Kit detect other COVID-19 variants?

    iHealth has completed testing on several heat inactivated variant strains and the iHealth® COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test was able to detect the mutations. The clinical performance has not been established in all circulating variants but is anticipated to be reflective of the prevalent variants in circulation at the time and location of the clinical evaluation. Performance at the time of testing may vary depending on the variants circulating, including newly emerging strains of SARS-CoV-2 and their prevalence, which change over time.
  • Do I always need to perform two tests?

    If you have COVID-19 symptoms and are within the first 7 days of symptom onset, you can use one single test of the iHealth® COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test. You may also choose to perform two tests if you wish. By testing more frequently, you may detect COVID-19 more quickly and reduce spread of infection.
    If you do not have COVID-19 symptoms or have been having symptoms for more than 7 days, you will need to perform two tests over two or three days with at least 24 hours and no more than 48 hours between tests.
  • Can the At-Home COVID Test be used as proof of a negative COVID – 19 tests for travel?

    No. Currently, the iHealth® COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test cannot be accepted as proof of a negative COVID-19 test for travel.
  • Is a prescription required to perform the iHealth Rapid Covid Test?

    No, you do not need a doctor’s prescription to purchase and perform this test.
  • How accurate is the iHealth COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test?

    Based on the results of a clinical study where the iHealth® COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test was compared to an FDA authorized molecular SARS-CoV-2 test, iHealth® COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test correctly identified 94.3% of positive specimens and 98.1% of negative specimens.
    Additional asymptomatic individuals and individuals beyond the seven days of symptom onset were tested, but excluded from the primary performance calculations because they were not included in the intended use. A higher proportion of low positive specimens were observed in these populations, resulting in PPAs between of 85-88% in these individuals.
  • How far do I need to insert the Nasal Swab for collecting non-invasive sample?

    Gently insert the entire absorbent tip of the swab (usually 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch) into your nostril.
    With children, the maximum depth of insertion into the nostril may be less than ¾ of an inch, and you may need to have a second person to hold the child’s head while swabbing.
