What are RAT Kits?

 

Rapid Antigen Testing (RAT) is a screening tool to help detect COVID-19 for those without any symptoms of COVID-19. It is a quick and easy test. It involves a nasal swab, using a small cotton bud, which is then placed into a chemical solution and the solution is tested. The results are displayed within 15-30 minutes.
