Antigen Test for COVID-19: Reduce Transmission Fast
HiLab’s antigen test detects the presence of SARS-CoV-2 at the greatest transmissibility stage. The result is fast and the report signed by a health professional arrives directly on the phone in 25 minutes.
What is a Remote Lab Test?
Remote Lab Test (RLT) is an exam that can be performed outside a clinical analysis lab.
HiLab’s antigen RLT detects the proteins of the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid and has the distinction of offering a double-checked results by artificial intelligence and by one of our experts.
Fast virus detectionFrom the 5th to the 12th day after exposure or from the 1st to the 7th day after the onset of symptoms
Result in 25 minutesThe result of the HiLab antigen test comes out in 25 minutes, making it ideal for quick testing in clinics, pharmacies, healthcare facilities, events, and other locations.
Ideal for the transmission periodThe antigen has a high correlation with the transmission of the disease, contributing to the identification and isolation of carriers.
Used for contact tracingAntigen testing is indicated for the contact tracing strategy, which is essential in combating the pandemic. With it, it is possible to interrupt the transmission chain by testing symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals.

How did we reduce COVID-19 cases here at HiLab using the antigen test?
Asymptomatic people are also transmitters of the coronavirus. Knowing this, we didn’t think twice about creating our mass testing strategy to reduce COVID-19 transmission here at HiLab.
- In just one month of testing with the antigen test,
we reduced by 61% the cases of COVID-19 among our employees.
- We identified that for each symptomatic case
there were two asymptomatic cases.

Indications and technical specifications of the antigen test
HiLab Antigen Remote Lab Test (RLT) is indicated from the 5th to the 12th day after exposure or from the 1st to the 7th day after symptoms onset.
This test uses specific monoclonal antibodies to detect viral nucleocapsid protein, with high sensitivity and specificity.
Type of sample: Nasopharyngeal secretion
Total exam time: 25 minutes
How to interpret the HiLab Coronavirus Antigen Test result
The result indicates that the presence of antigens of the SARS-CoV-2 virus was not detected in the analyzed nasopharyngeal secretion sample. Suggests absence of coronavirus infection.
The result indicates the presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus antigens in the analyzed nasopharyngeal secretion sample. It suggests coronavirus infection.
Important: the result must be interpreted by a physician who must consider some factors such as clinical manifestations, the onset of symptoms, and complementary exams.
Discover our other solutions for COVID-19
In addition to the antigen test, HiLab also presents other solutions for a fast diagnosis of the infection: the IgM and IgG RLT - which detects the antibodies - and the PCR-LAMP test, which detects the genetic material of the virus.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the COVID-19 antigen test?
What are the differences between the RT-PCR test and the antigen test?
Why is antigen testing important?
Tests that detect SARS-CoV-2 while people are transmitting the virus are important tools in fighting the pandemic. In addition, antigen testing has a much more affordable value compared to RT-PCR.
You have the chance to leave the health facility with the result in hand and go into home isolation immediately, which is essential to reduce the transmission of the disease.
