COVID-19 is an infectious disease that can affect your airways and lungs, caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, in late 2019.
The most common symptoms associated with COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, a dry cough, and shortness of breath.
COVID-19 has proven to be very infectious, creating global pandemic status. Effective testing is of crucial importance to understanding infection, and reducing the spread of the virus.
Please note our tests are CE marked for professional use only, and is not for sale to the general public.
Our two rapid tests for the qualitative detection of COVID-19 antigen in a nasal swab can provide results within 10 minutes.
There are two versions of the product that work in similar ways. The latex test cassette contains an anti-SARS-CoV-2 Nucleocapsid protein antibody-latex particles conjugate and anti-SARS-CoV-2 Nucleocapsid protein antibody coated onto the membrane (latex). In comparison, the gold test cassette contains an anti-SARS-CoV-2 Nucleocapsid protein antibody gold colloid particles conjugate and an anti-SARS-CoV-2 Nucleocapsid protein antibody coated onto the membrane.
The tests are an ideal way for rapid screening at the patient side to detect COVID-19. The tests can be used together with our antibody test to increase the window of detection.
Implementing rapid screening for COVID-19 has vast time and cost savings when compared to, or integrated into, laboratory screening and will help control the spread of the virus by identifying active infection rapidly and accurately.
