ACON flowflex Covid-19 (self-testS) Packs of 25 tests ONLY 60p PER TEST PLUS VAT ON A BOX OF 25
COVID-19 is a respiratory infection that affects humans and spreads very quickly, mainly because many of those infected are asymptomatic. The symptoms are undetectable, but they can still spread the virus.
Investigations show that COVID-19 has a 1-14 days incubation period, whereas most infections catch on in around 4-7 days. On these days of symptom onset, you should be keen and assess what you are experiencing before seeking medical care. Some of the well-known symptoms of the virus include loss of smell or taste, fever or high temperatures, and a persistent dry cough.
The FlowFlex COVID-19 tests (25 in a pack) are made with a patented technology capable of detecting proteins, thus detecting strains of the COVID-19 virus. To administer an accurate test, you must use a simple nasal swab around 2cm within the nose. The process is less invasive than other nasopharyngeal tests. In terms of accuracy, the test can also be relied upon as it comes with a patented technology that offers accurate results regarding COVID-19 testing just as Healgen antigen test.
The test is currently supplied to The UK, German, Austrian, French and Spanish Governments, all UK airports, major airlines, pharmaceutical companies, corporates and distribution companies.
The FlowFlex test kit has been approved for home use and is up to 98.8% accurate. It has validation from Public Health England Porton Down and has approved grants in the UK and EU. They are exact in identifying symptomatic and asymptomatic cases of COVID-19 or any related variants.
After conducting the test, you will have the results in 15 minutes. It has at least a 2-year shelf-life dating from the manufacturing day. The FlowFlex Covid-19 antigen test (25 in a pack) kit is CE-approved and ISO-certified.
Differences Between Usual Test Kits and FlowFlex Test Kits
There are differences between a standard usual test kit and a FlowFlex test kit. A common feature is that FlowFlex tests and some usual tests are usable nasally, while most others are not. However, usual test kits lack clinical evidence to prove the adjustment.
An example is Innova; even though their tests have proven to be nasopharyngeal, they still claim their tests are doable on the nostrils. Using this test gets you about 40-50% accuracy. Other providers like Innova also claim their product as a nostril test when no clinical reports are conducted with the said swab mechanisms, leading to inaccuracies in the results.
The FlowFlex, on the other hand, has been evaluated with specimens sourced from patients and indicates high accuracy levels overall. The test obtained from this COVID-19 test kit is a simple nostril swab test.

FlowFlex COVID-19 Test Process
The test process is pretty simple and gets you the results relatively faster. In addition, the results you get from the FlowFlex test kit are reliable courtesy of the patented enhanced sensitivity system in the test cassette, making it much more sensitive than other tests. Furthermore, the FlowFlex self-test accurately detects the CoV-SARS antigens. The following is a step-by-step guide on how to conduct a COVID-19 test using the FlowFlex test kit.
The first step involves getting a simple nasal swab sample from the test subject. Getting the sample is relatively simple and is doable by a caregiver. You can also do this yourself if no one is around to help you.
Before using, confirm the extraction buffer tube and ensure the liquid level is at least 2mm close to the graduation line. Once done, you can put the swab into the buffer tube. Ensure you stir the swab containing the cell sample well and press it to the bottom of the table.
Stir the swab well and remove the test cassette from the foil packaging.
Add 3-4 drops of the sample onto the test card and then wait. You should have the test results in about 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes have elapsed, you should have your results ready. There are three possible outcomes; it can come out positive, negative, or invalid. Possible results are explained in detail below.
