Revised list of clinical laboratories conducting rapid antigen tests that meet the specifications of the Ministry of Health

The Ministry of Health, taking into account the recommendations of the European Commission and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), for the minimum standards that the SARS-CoV-2 rapid antigen tests must meet, has compiled a list of laboratories that carry out tests with these specifications.

In addition, the Ministry of Health informs citizens that rapid antigen tests using saliva are currently being evaluated at an EU level by the member states, as there are still insufficient data from independent clinical studies and their diagnostic value has not been proven. Therefore, pending the completion of the procedure and the issuance of guidelines by the ECDC, the Ministry of Health cannot accept the result of the above tests at this stage.

The table below lists the private clinical laboratories that meet the specifications for conducting rapid antigen tests:

It is reminded that individuals with a positive result of a laboratory rapid antigen test, which has not been conducted by the remote units of the Ministry of Health or by a private clinical laboratory included in the list above, must contact their Personal Doctor informing him/her in order to refer them to a molecular examination through the Public Health Clinics.

In any case, it is emphasized that citizens with a positive antigen test must be self-isolated immediately, and must follow the self-isolation guidelines for confirmed COVID-19 cases. Further instructions will be given by the Epidemiological Surveillance and Control Unit after being notified of the positive result by the clinical laboratory.

In cases of individuals with symptoms that are suspicious of a coronavirus infection and have a negative SARS-CoV-2 antigen test, it is recommended that they contact their Personal Doctor, in order to be evaluated and examined further by the molecular method (RT-PCR).

In cases of asymptomatic individuals with a negative SARS-CoV-2 antigen test, it is emphasized that they are not exempt from the risk of developing a COVID-19 infection and should continue to strictly apply the self-protection measures and protocols.

It should be noted that with the Quarantine Decree No. 2, dated January 8, 2021, a maximum price of €20 has been set for the conduction of rapid antigen tests for COVID-19.
