COVID-19 Testing Kits - FAQS
What is a Lateral Flow Test?
Lateral flow tests are designed to detect a live virus in people who are highly infectious, whether they are displaying symptoms or not. Their rapid turnaround time allows for mass testing in workplaces and schools without the need for expensive laboratory equipment and analysis.
Why do I need a Covid-19 Lateral Flow Test?
It is understood that as many as one in three people who have coronavirus does not show symptoms but are infectious. Lateral flow tests help to quickly identify and reduce the spread of the virus from those who appear healthy.
How Quickly Does it Deliver a Result?
Both of our lateral flow test kits provide a visual, easy to read the result in just 15 minutes, which means those who test positive can be instructed to isolate quickly and minimise exposure of COVID-19 in your school or workplace.
What is the Difference Between Antibody and Antigen Testing?
An antibody test is a blood test to determine if you’ve already been exposed to COVID-19. It works by detecting antibodies in your blood or serum.
An antigen test looks for an active COVID-19 infection such as the SARS-CoV-2 virus. If your antigen test is positive, you should self-isolate at home and follow government guidance.
Does my Testing Kit Contain Everything I Need?
Our COVID-19 testing kits come supplied with clear instructions and all the necessary tools to carry out the test - no extra equipment is needed. The packs include a workstation to lay out the contents in a way that helps workplaces deliver mass testing with ease, organisation and efficiency.
While no specialist equipment or laboratory analysis is required, we recommend that these products are used by competent people within a workplace or education setting.
Are Specialist Personnel Required to Administer the Tests?
As highlighted above, we recommend that the Covid-19 Tests are used by competent people within an education or workplace environment.
How Often Should I Check for Symptoms or Test Employees?
This depends on the safety measures that your organisation needs to put in place. The scale of these will be impacted by the size of your workforce, the risk factors identified in your contingency plan and the effect of any requirement to isolate on your ability to continue running your business.
As an employer, you need to decide the appropriate timescale between tests. For example, in some sectors (such as health and social care) where interactions with vulnerable individuals are common, repeat testing may be required more often.
How Do I Store My Covid-19 Testing Kit?
The Covid-19 kit can be stored at room temperature or refrigerated (2-30°C) - please follow instructions on each pack. The test device is stable through the expiration date printed on the sealed pouch. The test device must remain in the sealed pouch until use.
Please read instructions fully before starting any of the Covid-19 tests for sale. DO NOT FREEZE. Do not use beyond the expiration date.
