One of the keys to controlling the evolution of COVID-19 and combating its spread is performing diagnostic tests. In addition to the well-known PCR tests, antigen tests are a very useful tool for rapid detection and prevention screening. These tests, which are performed by analysing a drop of blood and with a result in a matter of minutes, require complete and secure traceability, so appropriate coding systems must be considered to ensure a reliable detection and tracking system.
Macsa id UK has been involved in the traceability marking of Rapid Antigen Testing for COVID-19. With the D-Series laser a thermal mark is achieved in just 1.8 seconds.
