Covid-19 antigen test


COVID-19 is a pathology caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, a virus that infects humans. Its transmission occurs through respiratory particles when coughing or sneezing.

Symptoms include:

  • Acute respiratory distress.

  • Fever.

  • Dry or wet cough.

  • Dyspnea or shortness of breath.

  • Nasal mucus.

  • Loss of taste or smell.

  • Nasal congestion

  • Conjunctivitis (redness of the eyes)

  • Sore throat

  • Headache

  • Fatigue.

  • Nausea/vomiting.

  • Diarrhea

To avoid being infected, it is important to use the safety measures described by the WHO, such as hand washing, wearing a mask in public places, and not being in contact with contaminated people.


Currently there is no 100% effective treatment for COVID-19. At Alpha Research Institute, we are looking for alternatives against SARS-CoV-2; therefore, we offer a diagnostic test of antigens and PCR completely free. This test consists of the collection of saliva sample and nasopharyngeal swab.


For participating in the study they can receive a monetary compensation of $25 and free transportation throughout the Houston area.
