    Rapid antigen assays ( RAD MESHD RAD HGNC) based on lateral flow immunochromatography (LFIC) technology have emerged as a valuable tool for the control of COVID-19 pandemic MESHD. Manufacturer{square}independent, real{square}world evaluation of these assays is crucial given the considerable heterogeneity reported in their clinical and analytical performances. Here, we report for the first time on the point-of-care performance of the CLINITEST(R) Rapid COVID-19 MESHD Antigen Test (Siemens, Healthineers, Erlangen, Germany) to detect SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD in presumptive COVID-19 MESHD cases or asymptomatic close contacts of COVID-19 MESHD patients. When compared to RT-PCR, the overall sensitivity of the assay was 80.2 (95% CI, 70.9-87.1) for symptomatic patients sampled (nasopharyngeal specimens) within five days after the onset of symptoms and 60% (95% CI, 40.7-76.6%) for asymptomatic participants. The overall specificity was 100% in both population groups.
