COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test Cassette x 25 (£10 per test)
Test cassette identifies COVID-19 present in a swab sample and gives a qualitative yes/no result within 15 minutes.
Easy to use, the test uses a swab sample from either the nose or throat (nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal sample) and is introduced into the test cassette by suspension in a buffer solution. The result is easily read on the cassette in a similar way to a pregnancy test.
The test is perfect for screening quickly at the patient side for the presence of COVID-19 and can be used as a companion to the antibody test to increase the window of detection.
The implementation of a rapid antigen test can offer time and cost-saving benefits when compared to laboratory screening. Regular testing can help to control the spread of the virus by identifying active infection rapidly and accurately.
