Although antigen tests are cheaper than molecular tests, they suffer from a much higher risk of yielding false results1. In consequence, FDA requires all antigen tests to be performed repeatedly over several days to improve their performance2.
However, this not only multiplies the cost, but more importantly, delays the correct diagnosis, and risks missing the optimal window for treatment.

Aptitude Metrix® tests are comparable in cost to repeat antigen testing, and put your mind at ease by delivering PCR-quality results from the get-go.
