Rapid Antibody Test Kit

The COVIDtestUK Antibody Instant Testing kit is a single-use test to detect both early and late markers (IgM and IgG antibodies) from a finger-prick blood sample that will provide results in 10 minutes.

The 6th generation test kit is CE marked, approved by FDA and accepted by the MHRA for use by a healthcare professional.

Antibody testing is a cost-effective way for employers to screen their workforce to identify those employees who have already had the virus.

Assay Performance

  • 98.66% Sensitivity
  • 99.82% Specificity

We supply the test kits directly to employers for a registered and licensed healthcare professional or occupational health nurse to administer the tests on site. A registered General Medical Council (GMC), Nursing Midwifery Council (NMC), General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) or General Dental Council (GDC) number is required in order to purchase.

PCR Saliva Test Kit

Our PCR saliva test is designed to detect whether or not you are currently carrying the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19.

The test is CE marked and results are performed in an IS015189 UK laboratory that is approved to share information with Public Health England (PHE).

With a turnaround time of the test results in 1-2 days, this simple ‘spit test’ is much more user-friendly and non-invasive compared to PCR nasal and throat swab testing for improved sample collection and increased accuracy.

The test is suitable for home testing and administration by a registered healthcare professional.

Assay Performance

  • 100% Sensitivity
  • 100% Specificity

PCR Nasal/Throat Swab Test Kit

The COVIDtestUK PCR Laboratory Testing kit uses a nasal/throat swab for the early detection of COVID-19 with results provided in 1-2 working days.

The test is CE marked and the laboratory has been approved to share result data with Public Health England as part of the Government’s Test and Trace programme.

The test is suitable for home testing and administration by a registered healthcare professional.

Whilst the test has many benefits for everyone, it has particular advantages for clinicians and patients in determining the risk of performing surgery, treatment or prescribing medicine for cancers and other diseases during the pandemic.
