Why Coronavirus Testing?
The main application of coronavirus testing is the identification of people who have been infected with SARS-CoV-2. This knowledge can be used to guide epidemiology and seroprevalence studies, as well as to facilitate contact tracing.
Some people infected with the virus never experienced significant symptoms, making the antibody test one of the only methods capable of identifying asymptomatic cases.
Additionally, the tests provide valuable information about the body's immune response to disease in people with different medical backgrounds and conditions. These statistics can help clinicians and researchers in vaccine development.
The SARS-CoV-2 Ag Rapid Test has been designed ONLY to act as an adjunct test for suspected cases of negative nucleic acid detection by coronavirus or in conjunction with nucleic acid detection in the diagnosis of suspected cases. The results of the nucleocapsid protein antigen test should not be used as the sole basis for diagnosing or excluding SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) infection or for reporting infection status. Learn how it works.

THE SARS-CoV-2 RAPID TESTS ARE DESIGNED FOR USE BY HEALTH PROFESSIONALS AND CLINICAL LABORATORIES ONLY.
DO NOT SEPARATE THE TEST COMPONENTS, OR USE OTHERS NOT INCLUDED IN THE KIT. IMPROPER USE MAY PRODUCE INVALID AND / OR RELIABLE TEST RESULTS.
DO NOT USE IF THE PACKING SEAL HAS BEEN REMOVED OR BROKEN
The SARS-CoV-2 IgM / IgG Rapid Test (Rapid COVID-19 IgM / IgG Test) has been designed ONLY to act as an adjunct test for suspected cases of negative nucleic acid detection by coronavirus or in conjunction with nucleic acid detection in the diagnosis of suspected cases. Results of IgM / IgG antibody tests should not be used as the sole basis for diagnosing or excluding SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) infection or for reporting infection status. Learn how it works.
Steps for Testing
SARS-Cov-2 on Saliva
This test uses a protocol similar to those defined by the US Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). It has been widely validated worldwide for the detection of the virus that causes COVID-19, known as SARS-CoV-2.
We are prioritizing our lab's ability to get their staff back to work by the NHS, governments and private employees, but we have a strictly limited number of individual test kits available to test or test the service.
Identify COVID-19 infection before symptoms appear
Each kit filters one person
COVID-19 test kit based on CDC and WHO
Our test is currently pending use on the NHS
How does it work
The test kit is shipped to your home within 2 business days by courier
Provide the sample in the collection tube and send it the next day by courier
Results within 24 hours of receipt via online dashboard
This product is only available in the UK.
Due to recent government guidelines on sample handling (guidelines) and to ensure the safety of all personnel involved in sample handling and processing, we deliver all samples via courier services.
There are three possible test results.
Positive: A positive result indicates that SARS-CoV-2 RNA was detected, which is presumed to be infected with the virus and is presumed to be contagious. Contact your local healthcare provider through the recommended channel and follow current recommended local guidelines. Laboratory test results should always be considered in the context of clinical observations and epidemiological data to make final diagnostic and treatment management decisions.
Negative - A negative test result indicates that SARS-CoV-2 RNA was not present in the sample above the limit of detection. However, a negative result does not rule out current or future SARS-CoV-2 infection and should not be used as the sole basis for treatment management decisions. Your recent exposure or clinical presentation should be fully considered, even if other diagnostic tests for other causes of disease (eg, other respiratory diseases) are negative. If your health deteriorates or if a SARS-CoV-2 infection is still suspected based on exposure history along with other clinical findings, contact your local health authority and retesting should be considered.
Inconclusive: An inconclusive result means that the test results did not meet the requirements to be reported as detection of SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA in the sample and should be clinically treated as undetected. However, there will be a partial detection of a SARS-CoV-2 signal that warrants notification under the duty of care for further investigation. Provisions for further testing are recommended in consultation with your physician or local health authority, and as with an Not Detected result, your complete medical history should be considered.
Failed - A failed result means that your test could not be processed accurately in the lab. Typically this is due to the wrong saliva sample being given (i.e. not enough saliva being produced, not mixing with the stabilizer fluid, or not eating / drinking before testing). We recommend doing another test as soon as possible.
