Healgen Covid-19 Antigen Test is one of only three rapid antigen tests listed by the Department of Health & Social Care on the UK Government website. 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.
The Healgen Covid-19 testing kit is a high sensitivity lateral flow antigen test. It is understood that as many as one in three people who have coronavirus do not show symptoms but are infectious. Lateral flow tests help to quickly identify and reduce spread from those who appear healthy.
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.
Please Note: The Healgen Covid-19 Antigen Test (Swab) does not differentiate between SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2
