What is a shallow nose test?

The shallow nose test is a rapid antigen test to show whether a person can currently infect another person with the coronavirus (SARS- CoV-2). With the shallow nose test, a sample is taken from the front of the nose, from both nostrils. This test is therefore suitable for people who find the usual Covid test, in which a cotton swab is inserted deeper into the back of the nose and throat, uncomfortable. If, for example, you want your children to be tested for Covid, this test is very suitable. Coronasnelcheck offers shallow nose tests from Roche, validated by the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport.

How does a shallow nose test work?

Just like the ‘standard’ rapid test, this test reacts to the presence of proteins of the virus; these proteins are called antigens. This test is therefore, like the rapid test, an antigen test. A nasal swab is taken from the front of the nose at a depth of about 2 to 2.5 cm. This is much less deep than with the ordinary rapid test, so if, for example, you want to have your child tested for Covid, this is a less invasive way. The swab is taken from both nostrils and then processed by our staff. After 15 minutes, the result of the rapid test can be read. With a specificity of 98.6%, this test is very reliable. This means that if you get a negative test result, it is 98.6% certain that you are not contagious to others with the coronavirus (SARS- CoV-2).

For whom?

A shallow nose test is suitable for anyone who needs a test result quickly and who finds the ‘normal’ Covid tests unpleasant. For children, for example, the ordinary way of testing for Covid is often uncomfortable. As this Covid test does not go as deeply into the nose, it can be described as child-friendly. With this antigen test, you receive the test result within 15 to 30 minutes.
