Feature 2: Tools for testing—PCR vs. rapid antigen

Selecting the appropriate test type is a highly important step in implementing an on-campus testing strategy. When testing an entire campus community regularly, it is important to note that scalable, highly accurate solutions with a large throughput, such as PCR or fast PCR, are likely to be more effective than point-of-care solutions, such as rapid antigen.






Feature 3: Helping keep people safe: A guide to population testing options for SARS-CoV-2

If you’re responsible for COVID-19 safety at a university, school, or workplace, testing of students or employees can be a key strategy to reduce the spread of the virus—while also helping you return to something closer to normal.

This guide can help you understand and evaluate the testing options available to your organization.
