The detection of new coronavirus antigen is carried out on the test strip by antigen and antibody binding reaction, which is convenient and quick. The results can be obtained in 15-20 minutes. However, the antigen antibody reaction will appear false positive because of some interference, and the specificity of methodology is less than 100%. Therefore, the results of antigen detection cannot replace the results of nucleic acid detection.

On March 11, 2022, the Application Scheme for Detection of New Coronavirus Antigen (Trial) was released. As of April 13, the State Food and drug administration has approved 27 novel coronavirus antigen detection reagent products.
