COVID-19 Rapid Test
Implementing rapid screening for COVID-19 has huge time and cost savings when compared to laboratory screening, and will help to control the spread of the virus by identifying infection before symptoms appear.
COVID-19 Rapid Test
The Test Cassette is easy to use, needing only a finger-prick sample to function, much like a home blood glucose test. As well as whole blood, the cassette can also be run with serum or plasma samples.
lateral flow test
COVID-19test new coronavirus lateral flow test uses antibodies that are specific for immune glycoproteins that are produced by infected individuals in response to the new coronavirus. These glycoproteins are called Immunoglobulin M and G (IgM and IgG). Immunoglobulins are normally produced by the immune system in response to bacterial or viral infections and act to ‘flag’ the pathogen, so that other immune cells can detect and kill it. The IgG/IgM that the test detects are specific to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, so a positive result would indicate the patient has contracted COVID-19.
Since there are two analytes of interest (IgM and IgG), there are two test lines on the strip. Only one test line needs to be seen for a positive diagnosis (as well as the control line). Two test lines would also indicate a positive result.
The new test has the following specifications:
IgG Specificity = 99.3% 0
IgG Accuracy = 98.9% 0
IgM Specificity = 98.6% 0
IgM Accuracy = 96.1% 0
Gives a qualitative
yes/no result within 10 minutes.
COVID-19 rapid test identifies the body’s response to coronavirus 3-7 days after infection, and gives a qualitative yes/no result within 10 minutes. Implementing rapid screening for COVID-19 has huge time and cost savings when compared to laboratory screening, and will help to control the spread of the virus by identifying infection before symptoms appear.

About Coronavirus (COVID-19)
COVID-19 is an infectious disease that can affect your airways and lungs, caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus.
This infectious disease was unknown until the recent outbreak which originated in China in late 2019. At time of writing, cases of COVID-19 continue to rise daily across the globe.
The most common symptoms associated with COVID-19 are fever, tiredness and a dry cough, but symptoms can take up to 14 days to appear so it is difficult to know if someone has been infected ahead of these conditions appearing. In the meantime, infected people can spread the virus unknowingly.
Staying at home
can help stop coronavirus spreading
You’ll need to stay at home if you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) or live with someone who does.
Staying at home means you should:
• Not go to work, school or public areas
• Not use public transport or taxis
• Not have visitors, such as friends and family, in your home
• Not go out to buy food or collect medicine – order them by phone or online, or ask someone else to drop them off at your home
• You can use your garden, if you have one. Stay at least 2 metres away from other people.
Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms
Stay at home if you have either:
• a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
• a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
