Eating oranges or drinking cola doesn't affect antigen test results

Eating oranges or drinking cola does not affect the results of COVID-19 antigen self-tests, experts said.
 

A video clip has gone viral on social networks showing someone dripping orange juice or cola into a test kit. Then, the kit displays a positive result. Some people have rushed to the conclusion that eating oranges or drinking cola prior to taking the test can affect the result.
 

Shanghai ZJ (Liferiver) Bio-Tech Co, producer of the testing kits, said the kit is only designed for fluid samples from a nose swab, so eating and drinking do not affect results. Even if orange juice or cola accidentally enters the nasal cavity, the concentration is too small to affect the test result.
 

做抗原检测前不能吃橙子喝可乐?真相来了

这两天,大家的圈群内是不是流传着这样一条视频:有人切开橙子,将汁液挤在抗原试剂检测盒上,没多久,T区出现了紫红色的横线。于是,有人得到“做抗原检测前不能吃橙子,否则会阳性”的结论。这是真的吗?当然是假的。
 

喝可乐或者吃橙子,原则上也不会影响抗原检测结果。目前,上海进行抗原检测时采用的是鼻拭子,正常饮食不会影响鼻拭子的样本成分——哪怕在小概率情况下,有部分可乐或橙汁进入鼻腔,但通常浓度不会很高,与直接滴入试剂盒中的可乐或橙汁完全不同。所以,无须担心喝可乐、吃橙子或饮食其他食品而影响抗原检测结果。
 

相关专家指出,只要滴管中的裂解液保存完好,抗原检滴入测试剂盒后一定时间内,C位指示线便会显露出来,掺入清水当然不会对结果产生影响,但这同样不符合检测说明规范,结果没有任何意义。
