About lateral flow testing

COVID-19 is an acute respiratory infectious disease, and humans are generally susceptible. Those infected by COVID-19 are the main source of infection and the disease is spreading rapidly around the world.

COVID-19 is an unusually problematic disease because most of the people infected are asymptomatic. This means that they do not display any symptoms and unknowingly spread the virus around while they have an active infection. Based on current knowledge, the incubation period of COVID-19 is 1 to 14 days, with most infections taking hold within 3 to 7 days. The main symptoms of the disease include a new or continuous dry cough, a loss of taste or smell, fatigue, and a temperature or fever.

The Certifly Rapid Antigen COVID-19 test is intended for the rapid detection of COVID-19 and has been authorised for use in the home by the MHRA. The test is very easy to complete, and results are available in as little as 15 minutes. When used in conjunction with the Certifly app, your Certifly test results can be used for international travel in regions that accept proof of a negative lateral flow test. Please note that you cannot use Certifly’s testing kit and app in countries that require proof of a negative PCR test.

If both the C-Line and the T-Line shows a red line (even if it is faint), this result is POSITIVE.

INVALID:

If there is no red line on the C-Line, regardless of whether there is a line on the T-Line, this result is INVALID and another test has to be taken.
