The Healgen Rapid Antigen Test Kit (COVID-19) is intended for the quick detection of COVID-19 antigens. This lateral flow Covid-19 test is only meant for use by medical professionals such as nurses and doctors. Healgen Antigen Test kit is one of only three UK Government assessed Rapid Antigen Tests.

The COVID-19 Healgen Antigen Test has been evaluated with specimens obtained from patients and the results show it has a high overall relative accuracy.

COVID-19 is an acute respiratory infectious disease that has killed over 128,000 people in the UK and infected over 4.49 million others.

Using Lateral Flow to Combat COVID-19

Despite the UK’s strong vaccination program, the pandemic is not over yet. Coronavirus cases are still spreading, particularly among asymptomatic people. According to the NHS, around one in every three people are asymptomatic, meaning that they have Coronavirus but do not display any symptoms.

To this end, the government is encouraging everyone who is eligible to order a lateral flow COVID 19 test kit. You can also take a private COVID test if you suspect that you have the virus. According to the World Health Organization, COVID-19’s incubation period is 5-6 days on average, but this can go up to 14 days. Studies show that the virus is most infectious within 3 days of showing symptoms. 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. During the acute phase of the COVID-19 infection, antigens are generally detectable in the upper respiratory tract in the nose and throat. Rapid diagnoses of COVID-19 will help healthcare professionals treat patients, control the virus, more importantly, save lives.

The Healgen COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test is used to diagnose SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. It detects the presence of Coronavirus proteins in a sample drawn from the surface of the posterior nasopharynx and gives results in as little as 15 minutes. This test requires health expertise to carry out and interpret results, you cannot buy a COVID 19 test kit and do it in the privacy of your home.

FAQs

What is antigen testing?

Antigen tests detect proteins specific to a virus that appears in infected individuals, which indicates active infection. Rapid antigen testing is beneficial because of their portability, ease-of-use, and swift time to result.

What is the extraction buffer?

The extraction buffer includes components to dissociate viral proteins from their surfaces to be used as a target for the test. The method of the extraction buffer is used to prepare the test sample by dissolving the virus shell, which also deactivates the virus.

Does the test kit include transport media?

The test kit includes an extraction buffer that is used to prepare the specimen for testing purposes. The extraction buffer IS NOT transport media and should not be used to preserve or transport specimens.

Can the test be used with alternative specimen types such as nasal swabs or any specimen contained in viral transport media?

The Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Test is for direct nasopharyngeal swab specimen only. The test can only be used with the swab provided in the kit.

Can I collect the specimen and test at a later time?

The specimen should be tested immediately after collection. The specimen can be retained up to 1 hour following collection if immediate testing of specimens is not possible. Dispose of the specimen and recollect if retained for more than 1 hour.

Can I freeze the device for long-term storage?

The device should never be frozen. If refrigerated, allow the test kit components to reach room temperature before use.
