Rapid tests are designed for use where a preliminary screening test result is required and are especially useful in resource-limited countries
ELISAs are highly sensitive and specific, and are able to detect more variants. They require sophisticated equipment that must be regularly maintained, a constant electricity supply and skilled technicians. They are really not suitable for small laboratories, but for testing large numbers of samples per day, as well as in blood banks or for surveillance studies. Rapid tests are better for emergency testing, and in smaller laboratories with low numbers of tests per day or for testing on site.
