COVID-19 SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test

A SARS-CoV-2 antigen test detects the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus  from part of the upper respiratory tract swab specimens by identifying a nucleoprotein that is carried by the virus. The test identifies current infection during the acute phase of COVID-19, while the virus is still present in large quantities in the respiratory tract.

The SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test is a reliable, rapid chromatopgraphic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of specific antigens of SARS-CoV-2 present in the human nasopharynx.

FAQ – Covid-19 Test Kit –

What symptoms do you get with COVID-19?

You can expect the following symptoms if you have a COVID-19 infection:

  • cough
  • fatigue
  • fever
  • shortness of breath

Some people infected with COVID-19 have no symptoms at all. They can still infect other people though.

How do you catch COVID-19?

The COVID-19 virus is transmitted by respiratory droplets. If an infected person sneezes or coughs they spray out virus-loaded droplets. Other people can breathe in the droplets and may become infected too. It is possible to get infected by COVID-19 if you touch a contaminated surface and transfer the viruses to your face.

Do I need a COVID-19 test?

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of COVID-19, or if you have come into contact with someone who has COVID-19, or have returned from a country with a high incidence of COVID-19 consider testing yourself for this viral infection.

How does the Covid-19 PCR test work?

The Zen Healthcare test uses state of the art PCR techniques to look for the Wuhan strain of the virus. The principle of PCR is to extract, amplify and identify the viral RNA sequence of the virus. This testing method ensures the high degree of specificity of this test for the Wuhan and related strains of Coronavirus nCoV-2019. Our test is sensitive to fewer than 100 copies of the target viral RNA, making it a highly accurate test..

 
How accurate is the test?

This Covid-19 test is 99.9% accurate with the correct sample taking technique. It is important that you follow the instructions included in your test kit.

What will Antibody test results tell me

This test is to find out if you have been infected with the coronavirus in the past, and to be effective, must be taken a minimum of 14 days after you develop symptoms.

What will SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test results tell me

 The SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay intended for the qualitative detection of specific antigens of SARS‑CoV‑2 present in the human nasopharynx. This test is intended to detect antigen from the SARS‑CoV‑2 virus in individuals suspected of COVID‑19.

The SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test enables fast decision making e.g.  whether patients need to be put in quarantine, reducing the risk of further spreading. In addition to that it allows for screening of individuals after confirmed exposure to a SARS-CoV-2 infected person or individuals at risk of exposure such as healthcare workers.

Am i taking my sample correctly

Your kit includes a full set of instructions detailing how to collect your sample.

Does my order include special delivery?

Yes, all Covid-19 PCR swabs include tracked, special delivery.

Is testing on Day 2 & Day 8 following your return to UK compulsory?

Yes. Before travelling back to the UK, passengers must book their travel test package, which will include both of the COVID-19 tests to be taken on or before Day 2 and, on or after day 8 of their quarantine.

How do I calculate my quarantine period?

The day you arrive back in the UK will be treated as day zero.

Can I leave my quarantine location to collect or conduct my COVID-19 tests?

Yes, you are permitted to leave your quarantine location to collect or conduct your COVID-19 test but you are required to return to your quarantine location as soon as this is completed.

How do I return my sample to the lab (Day 2 & Day 8 )?

Each test comes with return postage to the lab. Using a priority post box, simple post your sample back to the lab.

Can I leave quarantine early if my Day 8 test is negative (Day 2 & Day 8 tests)?

No. Even if your day 8 test is negative, you must stay in quarantine until day 10, unless you purchase a Day5 Test to Release. (PLEASE NOTE: Day 5 test is optional).
