Who is this test for?
Our home coronavirus tests can be taken by anyone, including: –
- If you have symptoms of COVID-19
- If you have come into contact with someone who has COVID-19
- If you are anxious and worried about whether you may be infected with COVID -19
How does this test work?
Our test detects the nucleic material (RNA) within the virus. This allows for the identification of COVID-19 infection at a much earlier stage. Other testing methods are based on your immune system producing antibodies to the infection, which may be delayed.
It uses a nasopharyngeal swab to collect a sample. A sample will be taken from the back of the throat avoiding the tongue and from the back of the nose, including each nostril. Full instructions on collecting the sample will be included within the test kit.
Once received by the laboratory, your results will be available within 3 days.
Is this test right for me?
This test is designed to identify an existing infection of COVID-19 which may help you decide the course of action needed.
It doesn’t identify if a person is immune to the virus if you take the test once infection has passed. For this reason, it’s still important to follow advice outlined by the government.
