The Boson Antigen Rapid Test is an in vitro immunochromatographic assay for the direct and qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 viral nucleoprotein antigens from nasal secretion samples.
In just 15 minutes, individuals can determine a positive or negative result. If positive, individuals should adhere to their local public health guidelines and verify results with a PCR test.
Antigens are generally detectable in nasal secretions during the acute phase of infection. Positive results indicate the presence of viral antigens, but other diagnostic information is necessary to determine infection status.
Negative results should be treated as presumptive, and do not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection and should not be used as the sole basis for treatment or patient management decisions, including infection control decisions.
Accessible, large-scale testing helps contain the virus spread. It is the perfect screening tool for organizations that want to protect their workplace from the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
The Rapid SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Test Card is intended for use by trained clinical laboratory personnel specifically instructed and trained in vitro diagnostic procedures.
The Boson COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test Device is a Health Canada authorized COVID-19 testing device.

The tests are easy to prepare but, with no lids on the vials you do have to be careful to not have them spill. The swab is a little thinner an flimsier than other tests we have used, and somehow more-ticklier. Other than that, works as well as any other tests we have used over the last year.

quick shipping and great price.
The test seemed to work. Tried it on someone with no symptoms. Negative test. Tried it on someone with symptoms. Positive test.
Much more sensitive than other tests. We have the BTNX Rapid Response at home and my son tested positive on Boson but negative on the BTNX tests. Positive result was confirmed via PCR test (with a 42.9ct, so quite impressive!) . Super easy to use, only annoyance is that the liquid buffer is not individually portioned, 8 drops must be used per test.
