The RSPT is a non-invasive test indicating the immune response to infection from SARS-CoV-2, the virus underlying COVID-19:
– Provides results on the spot in 15 minutes
– Less intrusive than a swab or blood test
– Simple saliva sample required
– Can be taken on the premises (with a healthcare professional present)
It enables businesses with a healthcare professional present to test on a wide scale and build confidence to return to work quickly and safely.
The RSPT works by using a lateral flow device. Users provide a small saliva sample into a tube and add Medusa 19’s novel solution which isolates and solubilises protein structures present in saliva, produced in response to SARS-CoV-2 infection.
This mixture is placed on the lateral flow device which migrates the saliva sample along the device. As the sample moves along the device, the antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 that are present in the saliva will attach to chemicals in the device, capturing them on test and control lines.
A colour change along these lines will appear depending on the presence of proteins (G for IgG and M for IgM).
The results are within 15 minutes
