This test is authorized for individuals with symptoms of COVID-19 within the first 7 days of symptom onset when tested at least twice over three days with at least 48 hours between tests, and for individuals without symptoms or other epidemiological reasons to suspect COVID-19, when tested at least three times over five days with at least 48 hours between tests.

Test Procedure

For more information of all the test procedures, please download the Quick Reference Guide (QRG) at the bottom of this page.


Remove nasal swab from its packaging. DO NOT touch the swab tip


Gently insert swab ½ - ¾ inch into first nostril, or until you feel resistance. Slowly make at least 5 rotations with the swab firmly against the walls of the nostril for approximately 15 seconds. Repeat step in your second nostril using the same swab.

Stir & Squeeze

Take the tube out of the tube holder. Place the swab into the tube, ensure the swab tip is in the liquid inside the tube. Stir the swab tip against the bottom and side of the tube for at least 15 times. While squeezing the sides of the vial firmly, pull the swab out to remove excess liquid.


Add 3 drops of solution into the circular sample well, labeled as "S" on the test cassette.

Wait 10 minutes

Set timer for 10 minutes. Do not move or lift the test cassette. Read the test result at 10 minutes.

Advin FAQs

Most tests are U.S. FDA cleared to be 99.9% accurate, as well as CLIA waived and approved for home use, certifying that they are sufficiently simple to operate and interpret. Any test we make that may be considered a niche test, for which the FDA has not yet established guidelines, is held to this same standard and will be cleared after protocols are established by the FDA.
Negative results may be seen in as little as one minute. Positive results may be read after 5 minutes. Results should not be read after 60 minutes.
Some tests do not distinguish between therapeutic use of a drug and abuse of the same drug. A test may yield preliminary positive results when prescription tricyclic antidepressants, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, methadone, buprenorphine or opiates are ingested, even at therapeutic doses. There are no uniformly recognized drug levels for these prescription drugs in urine.
Room temperature storage, or 2-30 degrees Celsius / 35.6-86 degrees Fahrenheit is recommended. Do not freeze the test. The expiration date is written on the pouch that contains the device, most tests have a shelf life of 2 years from the date of manufacture.
A red or pink line next to the “T1” or “T2” (drug test line) under the drug name indicates a negative result for that drug, even if the line is very faint. In the case of a positive result, there will be NO line at all. ANY line, no matter how faint, indicates a negative result.

There are different kinds of tests for the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. Molecular tests detect genetic material from the virus. Antigen tests, such as the Advin COVID-19 Antigen Test @Home, detect proteins from the virus. Due to the lower sensitivity of antigen tests, there is a higher chance this test will give you a false negative result when you have COVID-19 than a molecular test would. 

Clinical studies have shown that antigen tests more accurately determine whether you are infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 when taken multiple times across several days. Repeat testing improves test accuracy. This serial testing approach is recommended to minimize the risk of incorrect results. For more information on the performance of the test and how the performance may apply to you, please refer to the performance data in the Healthcare Provider Instructions for Use (IFU), available at

A positive result means that it is very likely you have COVID-19 because proteins from the virus that causes COVID-19 were found in your sample. You should self-isolate from others and contact a healthcare provider for medical advice about your positive result.

A negative test result indicates that antigens from the virus that causes COVID-19 were not detected in your sample. However, if you have symptoms of COVID-19, and your first test is negative, you should test again in 48 hours since antigen tests are not as sensitive as molecular tests. If you do not have symptoms and received a negative result, you should test at least two more times with 48 hours in between tests for a total of three tests. If you have a negative  result, it does not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection; you may still be infected and you may still  infect others. It is important that you work with your healthcare provider to help you  understand the next steps you should take. 

An invalid result means the test was not able to tell if you have COVID-19 or not. If the test is invalid, a new swab should be used to collect a new nasal specimen and you should test again with a new test. 


Do not use this test as the only guide to manage your illness. Consult your healthcare provider if your symptoms persist or become more severe. Individuals should provide all results obtained  with this product to their healthcare provider.
