In November, 2020, ACON Flowflex SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test was listed in the BfArM antigen tests list, which fulfils all the minimum criteria for antigen tests laid down by the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut in consultation with the Robert Koch-Institut (RKI), as well as for refunding pursuant to the Coronavirus Test.

ACON Flowflex SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection the nucleocapsid protein antigen from SARS-CoV-2 in nasal, saliva and nasopharyngeal swab specimens directly from individuals who are suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider within the first seven days of the onset of symptoms. The SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test can also test specimens from asymptomatic individuals.

• Nasal, Saliva and Nasopharyngeal swab specimens

• Results in 15 minutes

• Excellent performance compared to molecular methods

• Room temperature storage

ACON Flowflex SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test has a high sensitivity and specificity, with the accreditation by Paul-Ehrlich-Institut (PEI), the quality and performance are therefore highly reliable.
