COVID-19 antigen test validation summary report

This project was carried out by the HSE in partnership with colleagues from:

  • other public services
  • academic centres
  • professional bodies

The aim was to validate the performance of a number of products intended for testing samples for SARS-CoV-2 antigen in people with and without symptoms of COVID-19.

The products evaluated were chosen as those expected to represent the best available products based on the manufacturers' claims and other available evidence.

The key outcomes from this project are reflected in the recommendations in the report.
