The rapid strep test is a diagnostic rapid antigen test used to detect whether Group A Streptococcus is present in the throat of a patient, aiding in the diagnosis of bacterial pharyngitis, commonly known as strep throat. Several types of rapid strep tests are available, each with their own types of equipment and testing procedure.
