SHIELD FAQ - What are the possible test results one could receive from the covidSHIELD test?

--

The notifications of the tests results are as follows:

Negative The virus was not detected.

Positive The virus was detected.

Invalid – The sample provided was non-optimal and could not produce the appropriate data during processing at the lab. (This is likely to a poor-quality sample, not adhering to the fasting requirements, or interfering material in the sample. It is recommended to have the participant retest and adhere to the one hour fasting requirements, focusing on producing the specimen from saliva, not sputum).

Inconclusive – The sample was able to be processed in the lab, but it was not able to definitively provide a detected/not detected results. (It is recommended to have the participant retest).

Rejected – The sample was not able to be processed at the lab. (This is likely due to low sample volume, the cap coming off the tube in transport or other damage to the tube, and/or extremely poor sample quality. It is recommended to have the participant retest and adhere to the one hour fasting requirements, focusing on producing the specimen from saliva, not sputum).
