Coronavirus Ag Rapid Antigen Test Kits
Each kit comes with 20 easy to use individual tests that need a nasal swab in order to test the presence of an active infection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Each kit contains:
-- 20 individually packed cassette devices and sterile swabs
-- 20 extraction tubes and dropper tips
-- 2 detection buffers
-- 1 Instructions for use by a medical professional
Each kit or unit of 20 is priced from £520 (for orders of 300 tests), including VAT with free delivery to one location in the UK. Delivery to multiple locations is available though. Price is dependent on volume.
Antigens are generally present in the acute phase of infections. Through clinical trials the tests performed at an accuracy of 97.3% sensitivity and 100% specificity. What this means is that there is an overall 99% accuracy rate in testing for an active infection of COVID-19.
How It Works?
The test detects the presence of active infection of COVID-19 through the use of a nasal swab. The test is an in vitro immunochromatographic
assay for the qualitative detection of nucleocapsid protein antigen from SARS-CoV-2 in nasopharyngeal (NP) swab specimens directly or after the swabs have been added to viral transport media from individuals who are suspected of having COVID-19.
The core difference to a PCR swab test is that antigen testing detects the presence of any coronavirus, including SARS-CoV-2.
A simple nasal swab by reaching the posterior nasopharynx in the nostril, administered by your Occupational Nursing team or medical professional, will provide the specimen for the testing kit. This is followed by 0.3ml or 10 drops of the buffer fluid into the extraction tube. Full instructions are provided with each kit, which are simple to use of any trained medical professional or clinical physician.
Once the steps in the instructions are followed, results will be provided within 15 minutes.
