Rapid Antigen Testing | BD Veritor™ Plus System


Antigen tests are diagnostic and some, like the BD Veritor™ Plus System, use immunoassays that detect the presence of a specific viral antigen indicative of an infection. These tests detect pathogens, such as influenza viruses, Group A Streptococcus bacteria and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). Recently, the FDA granted emergency use authorization (EUA) for some SARS‑CoV‑2 antigen tests, including the BD Veritor™ System for Rapid Detection of SARS‑CoV‑2*.

 

Rapid antigen tests can be used conveniently at the point-of-care.
