Healgen COVID-19 Antigen Test is one of only three rapid antigen tests approved by the UK Government. It is widely used by local authorities, education settings and businesses and used by the UK Government for mass testing in Liverpool and other locations.

Lateral Flow Test Features:
• Designed to aid the rapid diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infections by identifying those with positive results so they can quickly isolate
• Simple to use with clear instructions & easy-to-read results with all necessary equipment included
• Results within 15 minutes for the SARS-CoV-2 antigen with a high sensitivity and specificity
• CE Certified
• Lateral Flow Test Kit

Lateral tests take a sample from the nose or mouth using a swab, which is then mixed with a buffer solution, with drops being added to a lateral flow device. Then the virus fragments pass along the strip within the lateral flow device where they can bind to labelled antibodies, which then shows up as a test line if the virus is detected, unlabelled antibodies provide a control line to show the test has worked. Healgen’s test screens for the SARS-CoV-2 antibodies, in the first one to three weeks of infection.

Designed for use by clinical professionals but now approved by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) for exceptional use as a COVID-19 rapid test, by members of the public, 12.2020.

Each Kit Contains:
• 20 Test cassettes
• 20 Sterile swabs
• 20 Extraction tubes and dropper tip
• 1 Workstation

Performance Characteristics:
The Healgen Covid-19 Antigen Test (Swab) has been evaluated with specimens obtained from patients.
A commercialised molecular assay was used as the reference method.
The results show that the Healgen Covid-19 Antigen Test (Swab) has a high overall relative accuracy.

The Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Test is an in vitro immunochromatographic assay for the qualitative detection of nucleocapsid protein antigen from SARS-CoV-2 in direct nasopharyngeal (NP) swab from individuals who are suspected of COVID-19. It is intended to aid in the rapid diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infections.

The novel coronaviruses belong to the ß genus. COVID-19 is an acute respiratory infectious disease. Currently, individuals infected by SARS-CoV-2 are the main source of transmission; asymptomatic carriers are also known as a source of transmission. Based on the current epidemiological information, the incubation period can last from 1 to 14 days, where the average time before symptoms occur is about 5 days. Symptoms include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhoea.

Warning:
Negative results do not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection, particularly those who have been in contact with the virus. Follow up testing with a molecular diagnostic test should be considered to rule out infection in these individuals.

ALL ANTIGEN AND ANTIBODY TEST KITS ARE SPECIFICALLY NON-RETURNABLE

Please note that if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, you must follow Government guidelines in terms of isolating and testing
