At present, the Healgen rapid COVID-19 antigen test is being rolled out on a wide scale by the UK Government to aid the mass-testing effort. Although the test is designed for use by clinical professionals such as doctors and nurses, an application for “exceptional use” of the COVID-19 testing kit by members of the public in domestic settings was approved on December 23rd by the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

The Healgen COVID-19 Rapid Antigen test is intended for the quick detection of COVID-19 antigens. Initially, this lateral flow covid test was only meant for use by medical professionals such as nurses and doctors. However, on December 23rd, the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA) approved an application for “exceptional use” of this test kit by members of the public in domestic settings. 
This means the kit is a great option for anyone who wants to buy a coronavirus home test kit, take a private Covid test at home, or to order Covid test kits for use in a medical clinic or hospital in the UK.When used correctly, this rapid COVID-19 antigen test produces results in as little as 15 minutes with high accuracy.

The Healgen COVID-19 Antigen Test has been evaluated with specimens obtained from patients and the results show it has a high overall relative accuracy.
COVID-19 is an acute respiratory infectious disease that has killed over 123,000 people in the UK and infected 4.18milion others. 
Coronavirus cases are still spreading rapidly, particularly among asymptomatic people. According to the NHS, around one in every three people are asymptomatic, meaning that they have Coronavirus but do not display any symptoms. 
Health Secretary Matt Hancock believes that stepping up Covid 19 testing will ‘help break the chain of infections’. 
To this end, the government is encouraging everyone who is eligible to order a lateral flow COVID 19 test kit. You can also take a private COVID test if you suspect that you have the virus.According to the World Health Organization, COVID-19’s incubation period is 5-6 days on average, but this can go up to 14 days. Studies show that the virus is most infectious within three days of showing symptoms. The main symptoms of the disease include a new or continuous dry cough, a loss of taste or smell, fatigue, and a temperature or fever.During the acute phase of the COVID-19 infection, antigens are generally detectable in the upper respiratory tract in the nose and throat. Rapid diagnoses of COVID-19 will help healthcare professionals treat patients, control the virus more importantly, save lives.The Healgen COVID-19 Test is used to diagnose SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. It detects the presence of Coronavirus proteins in a sample drawn from the throat or nose, and gives results in as little as 15 minutes. This test does not require health expertise to carry out or interpret, and you can buy a COVID 19 test kit and do it in the privacy of your home.

Qualitative, visual results can be
obtained in as little as 15 minutes.

No extra equipment or
instruments required.

Test kits can be stored at room
temperature or refrigerated between
2-30 degrees Celsius.

Buffer included.

antigen kit is designed and intended for
use by clinical professionals. Please see

before withdrawing it from
the nasal cavity.

the extraction tube.

at least 6 times.

FAQs

Healgen Lateral FLow Test Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is antigen testing?

Antigen tests are used to detect proteins specific to a virus that appear in infected individuals. If a patient has antigens detected in a sample, it means a viral infection is present. 

In the case of COVID 19, the Healgen lateral flow test detects Coronavirus proteins in a sample obtained from the nose or throat. 

You can order a home COVID test from the government or buy a rapid antigen test kit for home use.

What is a lateral flow test?

A lateral flow test kit works by taking a sample from the nose or back of the throat via a swab. This swab is then tested for the presence of certain antigens. Lateral flow is simply the technology used in the test and its function is quite similar to that of a pregnancy test.  You can buy Covid 19 home test kit in the UK and use it hassle free. 

How quickly does a lateral flow test produce results?

A lateral flow test like a Healgen rapid antigen test can provide a visual result in just 15 minutes. This allows quick identification of positive cases so that people can self-isolate sooner and reduce the risk of transmission. Any positive lateral flow test should be confirmed by a government-approved PCR test, and this can be arranged by calling NHS 119.

What’s the difference between an antibody and antigen test

A lateral flow antigen test can be used to determine an active case of COVID-19 while an antibody Covid test is used to determine whether you have PREVIOUSLY had COVID-19. They are two completely different tests designed for two completely different purposes. You can order these two types of coronavirus home test kits on our website.

Do I need to buy any extra equipment?

No—your COVID home test kit comes with everything that you need to carry out your test, and clear instructions are supplied on how to perform the test and interpret its results. Although no specialist knowledge is needed and the UK government has approved lateral flow tests for public use, it’s always recommended that they’re carried out by trained healthcare professionals.

Can I delay certain parts of the test?

No, you should always carry out the full test at a single point in time. If you buy a rapid test kit you should test your specimen immediately after it is collected and no longer than one hour. Results should be interpreted immediately, too.

How can I store my Kits?

An unopened Coronavirus home test kit can be stored at room temperature or refrigerated between 2-30 degrees Celsius. You should never freeze your lateral flow antigen test kit. Always allow the test kit to reach room temperature before you use it.

How do I dispose of a used lateral flow test kit?

A lateral flow test can be bagged up and disposed of along with your regular household waste. Stay safe.

The sanitation stations work very well once fitted. However, the installation template that comes with them is incorrect as far as drilling the holes is concerned, so be wary of this before drilling!
