Despite the UK’s strong vaccination program, the pandemic is not over yet. Coronavirus cases are still spreading, 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.

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 3 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 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 surface of the posterior nasopharynx and gives results in as little as 15 minutes. This test requires health expertise to carry out and interpret results, you cannot buy a COVID 19 test kit and do it in the privacy of your home.

Healgen’s COVID-19 testing kit is a lateral flow antigen test with great sensitivity. One in every three patients infected with coronavirus is thought to be symptomless yet infectious.

Healgen lateral flow tests identify and limit the spread of disease among healthy people.

In lateral flow testing, a swab is used to collect a sample from the nose, then mixed with a buffer solution and dropped into a lateral flow device. The viral fragments then move along the strip within the lateral flow device. They can bind to labelled antibodies, which appear as a test line if the virus is found. In contrast, unlabeled antibodies appear as a control line to demonstrate that the test was successful. In the initial one to three weeks after infection, the Healgen test looks for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies.

The COVID-19 Antigen Test (Swab) by Healgen does not distinguish between SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2.

FAQs

Healgen Covid Test Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is antigen testing?

Healgen 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 . 

You can order a home COVID test from the governments website or buy a rapid antigen test kit for use by medical professionals only.

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 test kit in the UK this test must be carried out by a medical professional. 

How quickly does the Healgen Rapid Covid-19 Antigen Self-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 test kits on our website.

Do I need to buy any extra equipment?

No—your COVID 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 Covid Testing Kits?

An unopened Coronavirus 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.

What Is a Healgen Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Self-Test?

Because of where the mutation is placed, the Healgen Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Self-Test will be able to identify the Omicron Variant. The test can identify the nucleocapsid protein present in the cell wall (envelope).

What is the extraction buffer?

The extraction buffer contains components that separate viral proteins from their surfaces, allowing the assay to employ them as a target by dissolving the viral shell, which also deactivates the virus.

Does the test kit include transport media?

An extraction buffer is included with the test kit, which is used to prepare the material for testing. The extraction buffer should not be utilized to conserve or transport specimens since it is not a transport medium.

What is a Healgen COVID test for antigen testing?

Antigen tests detect virus-specific proteins in infected people, indicating current infection. Healgen rapid antigen testing is advantageous because of its mobility, convenience, and quick turnaround time.

Can the test be used with alternative specimen types, such as nasal swabs or any specimen contained in viral transport media?

Only direct nasopharyngeal swab specimens are used for the Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Test. One can use only the swab provided in the kit to perform the test.

Can I collect the specimen and test it later?

One should test the material as soon as possible after it is collected. If quick testing of specimens is not practicable, one can keep the sample for up to 1 hour after collection. If the selection has been held for more than one hour, dispose of it and recall it.

Can I freeze the device for long-term storage?

It is never a good idea to put a gadget on ice. If the test kit components have been refrigerated, allow them to come to room temperature before using them.

Why Use the Healgen Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Self-Test

  • Allow people to collect samples on their own or with the help of others.
  • Safe and simple operation with single-use components decreases pollution risk.
  • Within 15 minutes, you’ll have very accurate findings.
