Rapid Test Kit: Introduction

Rapid test kits, also known as rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) or point-of-care tests, are medical devices used for the rapid detection and diagnosis of various diseases or conditions. These tests provide quick and convenient results, usually within minutes, enabling healthcare professionals to make immediate treatment decisions. Rapid test kits have gained significant popularity due to their simplicity, portability, and ability to deliver rapid results without the need for laboratory equipment or specialized training. Rapid test kits are designed to detect specific markers or antigens in biological samples, such as blood, urine, or saliva. They are commonly used for infectious diseases, including viral infections (such as HIV, influenza, and hepatitis), bacterial infections (such as streptococcus), and sexually transmitted infections. They can also be used for the detection of certain chronic conditions, such as diabetes or cardiac markers.
