COVID-19 rapid antigen self-tests approved in Australia

12 January 2022
COVID-19 rapid antigen self-tests that are approved in Australia | Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA)

The TGA has approved COVID-19 self-tests (home use tests) for supply in Australia from 1 November 2021.

Please refer to the instructions on how to use each test for further information on what sample types the test can be used with (e.g. nasal swab or saliva).

The TGA’s performance requirements for COVID rapid antigen self-tests are internationally aligned with technical specifications published by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the European Commission. This includes a minimum clinical sensitivity of at least 80% (for specimens collected within 7 days of symptom onset) and a minimum clinical specificity of at least 98%.

The clinical sensitivity of COVID-19 rapid antigen self-tests is based on the studies performed by the manufacturer which show the positive percent agreement (PPA). PPA is the proportion of individuals that produced a positive test result using a COVID-19 rapid antigen self-test, in comparison with a positive result that was obtained using a more sensitive laboratory PCR test.

The inclusion of this information does not represent TGA endorsement of a particular test as all approved tests meet the performance requirements. The manufacturer’s sensitivity information is also included in the instructions provided with each test.

For each test a comment on the clinical sensitivity is assigned as follows:

  • Acceptable sensitivity – clinical sensitivity greater than 80% PPA
  • High sensitivity – clinical sensitivity greater than 90% PPA
  • Very high sensitivity – clinical sensitivity greater than 95% PPA
