Rapid COVID tests are commonly used nowadays to detect COVID-19 quickly and efficiently. This box of 20 lateral flow COVID-19 tests gives you results in around 10-15 minutes average time, which is relatively faster than other tests. Using it is also straightforward, as they provide detailed instructions to help you get accurate results. The Healgen test is one of the most reliable COVID tests available. It can detect nucleocapsid protein antigens from SARS-CoV-2 from direct nasal swab specimens.
The box of 20 lateral flow tests is perfect for people who begin to show symptoms in the first seven to ten days.
Why Choose Healgen?
Healgen comes with some advantages, the first being that the box of 20 Healgen lateral flow tests is UK approved for self-testing, and you get accurate results in just 15 minutes. You also don't need instruments or any extra equipment. It is also a less invasive testing method compared to a nasopharyngeal swab. You only need to insert about 2 cm of the swab tip.
When you get the Healgen one test kit, you should expect the following components in the packaging:
- Sterile swabs
- Extraction tubes
- Test cassettes
- Dropper Tips
- Package insert
How It Works
When collecting the specimen, insert the swab in the patient's nostril and push it about 2 to 3 cm up until you feel some resistance. You then have to roll the swab around five times and ensure it touches the walls. You will repeat the same process for the other nostril too. Finally, remove the swab from the nostrils.
When preparing the sample, insert the extraction tube in the hole marked on the kit. Remove the sealing film on the extraction tube gently to avoid spilling the liquid. Next, put the swab in the extraction tube that has 0.3 mL of the extraction buffer. Press the head of the swab against the side and bottom of the extraction tube while rolling the swab. Leave the swab for about a minute, squeeze the tube from the outside to ensure it immerses the swab, and then remove it. Finally, insert the tip into the extraction tube.
Interpreting the Results
If the line is on the C, the result is negative, which means the absence of the SARS-CoV-2 infection. However, it is best to attempt to retake the test after a couple of days, as the virus is not always detectable in all phases.
A line on both the control and test line (C and T) indicates that the result is positive, which means the SARS-Cov-2 virus has been detected. The line can sometimes be faint, but the result will still be positive. Should this be the case for you, you should reach out to a medical professional as quickly as possible. In addition, you may take a PCR test to confirm the results at your local health facility. PCR tests are usually more accurate and reliable, but they take longer and are mostly conducted in health facilities by medical professionals.
