Antigen Covid-19 Test & Certificate service in Colchester
The Antigen Covid-19 test is a quick way to find out if you have a current covid-19 infection. It can be used for general testing for personal or corporate use. It can also be used for travel but you will need to check the requirements of the country that you are planning to visit to check if they accept an Antigen test. We can provide a certificate with the test, signed by our healthcare professionals.
How does the rapid antigen covid-19 test works?
The rapid antigen tests are based on the lateral flow immunoassay testing technique. Historically used for point-of-care rapid testing such as pregnancy tests, this technique is used to provide a rapid Covid-19 testing service.
A swab of the throat and nose is taken and placed in the test device and results are displayed in 15-30 minutes. The results are displayed by coloured lines on the test kit.
All of the tests are CE certified. This indicates that the test has been validated by the manufacturer and meets European Economic Area health and safety regulations.
