Covid Test Kit UK

The Healgen Rapid Antigen (COVID-19) test is intended for the quick detection of COVID-19 antigens. This lateral flow covid test is only meant for use by medical professionals such as nurses and doctors. Healgen Antigen Test kit is one of only three UK Government assessed Rapid Antigen Tests.

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 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.

FAQs

Healgen Lateral Flow 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 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 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.

37 reviews for Healgen Covid-19 Lateral Flow Rapid Antigen Test Kits

  1. Jon James

    Great Service, it really is appreciated.

  2. Mark Pratt

    Ordered our Healgen Antigen Rapid Test Kit from HandStations and took delivery the following day. Will be back to order more test next month.

  3. Sally Brewster

    I am a single mom of a one year old toddler. Since I work from home, I prefer to do bulk purchases of most products online with the occasional day (on weekends) outside. Due to the exposure to other people, I resolved to be doing constant self-testing for COVID-19. So far, I have been using the Healgen Rapid Antigen home tests to keep track of my COVID-19 status by taking a test every 2-3 weeks. These tests are easy to understand and use. The decision to constantly test was spurred by my desire to keep my child safe by keeping an eye on my own health. Aside from the convenience offered by the Healgen Antigen home tests, I love the fact that it has a shelf life of 24 months. In my case, I can therefore purchase all the kits I need in bulk without worrying that they will expire soon. Bulk orders also qualify me for some attractive discounted prices. Having a Healgen Rapid Antigen test at hand also assures that should any relative come calling, I have a test ready should they wish to have a test done! Now if that isn’t convenient I don’t know what is!

  4. Lexie M

    When I purchased the Healgen Rapid Antigen kit online, I just wanted to know my COVID-19 status. I did not have any symptoms, just wanted to know my status. Though I messed up my first attempt and got invalid results, I performed a second test which gave valid results. What I loved about these kits is that they come in packs of 20 tests, meaning I get a second chance to do it again in case I mess up the first time. For a person with no medical training, the Healgen Rapid Antigen test kits are a godsend.

  5. Smith R.T

    As government agents, we recognize the importance of mass testing. It is a critical component of managing the COVID-19 pandemic. Mass testing is an exercise whose data determines where and which measures the governments can take in containing the spread of the virus. Healgen Rapid Antigen tests are an indispensable tool in this regard as they enable local authorities, institutions and individuals to test a wide range of people within a short span of time. These tests are accurate and arm us with real time results which ensure we make more informed decisions. Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of these kits is that they can be conducted by health professionals and laypersons alike. Their ease of use make them a key mechanism in the battle against COVID-19.

  6. Olivia James21

    As a medic, I know only too well the benefits that come with home testing kits. Not only are they a critical tool in scaling up mass testing, they also significantly reduce the rate of spread of infection. The Healgen Rapid Antigen test is a great example of this. When a patient passively waits for a PCR test, there is a high probability that they will be passing the infection on to others during the wait period. Regardless of where they are symptomatic or asymptomatic, they will neither self-isolate nor take any medication, but will instead be infecting more people. They might do this inadvertently, not knowing they have the virus (as is the case with asymptomatic persons). Should they be symptomatic, their health might deteriorate to unsalvageable levels. However, with the availability of affordable Healgen tests, this problem is half solved as patients can now conduct home testing and aid the healthcare workers in managing the pandemic and saving thousands of lives.

  7. E.L Theo

    I work at a bank and due to the high human traffic we are exposed. Our employer bought these tests for us. The testing is voluntary but I have decided to get one performed every week just to be safe. It gives me peace of mind knowing that I stay informed about my status at all times. I also love the fact that the test results are rendered in a jiffy and I do not need to wait ages for them! As a family man, the last thing I want to do is shuttle an infection to my family.

  8. Howie MCGeorge

    Using the Healgen Rapid Antigen test, I rest assured that it is government approved as it offers an accuracy rate of between 97-99%. My job involves quite a bit of travel and as a result, I cannot afford to take chances with my health during these times. It is therefore necessary for me to undergo constant screening for COVID-19 and the Healgen Antigen home tests have been most helpful in this regard. Due to the portability of these tests, I can take some with me on my overland trips and conduct the tests on the go wherever I may be. I also love the assurance that comes with knowing that should I test positive, I am in a position to arrest the illness early enough by seeking medical attention right away.

  9. Amelia Flockhart

    I run a milk processing plant and due to the nature of our work, my employees have to be on top of their game on matters of health. That requirement is especially a major factor in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. Initially, we had a hard time keeping track of our employee’s COVID-19 status but since the introduction of the Healgen Rapid Antigen home tests, things are much easier. We love these tests due to their convenience as they deliver results in just 15 minutes. I also find them easy to use and love the fact that they are affordable and come with several tests included in a single pack. These several tests allow for a learning curve on the part of the consumer because when you make a mistake, you can re do the test using a fresh kit. I find that to be an important component in ensuring that we always secure accurate results.

  10. Dr. Deepak Patel

    Most countries’ health systems are strained by the COVID-19 pandemic and the traditional PCR tests are out of the reach of most people. That leaves asymptomatic individuals without much of an alternative in terms of testing. However, the approval of the Healgen Rapid Antigen home test kits has alleviated the situation somewhat, as people can now conduct these tests at home. Healthcare workers can also utilize the tests to screen for the non-infected, leaving PCR tests for the truly symptomatic and serious cases. Healgen Rapid Antigen tests have provided us a breakthrough on our mass testing efforts. They are also a viable tool for screening individuals at airports and other points of mass transportation. These are milestones that were otherwise not possible if we relied on PCR tests alone.

  11. Ralph Baxter

    I took the Healgen Rapid Antigen home test and got my results in 15 minutes. It is a handy tool as I did not have to leave my home or even rely on the interpretation of the test results by a laboratory. It also felt good to have the option to be proactive about my testing and not have to wait for a professional to do it for me.

  12. Neil Jones

    We now test our staff weekly, and HandStations have the stock in hand unlike other sellers online.

  13. David Smith

    5 Star company, hand stations delivered our Covid tests next day as they said they would. Great company and you’ve earned a repeat customer here.

  14. Harry

  15. Taylor Bradford

    At the beginning of the pandemic, my mate was diagnosed with COVID-19. At the time of diagnosis, the disease had progressed quite a bit. It sure did a number on him. When I heard of the possibility of home testing, I took it up and have been doing regular tests ever since. Wouldn’t want to go through what my mate Andy did. These home kits are my way of staying informed about my status.

  16. Francis

    This was my second order and have now signed up for the subscription service for our monthly deliveries.

  17. L Gregory

    My order was marked as dispatched with tracking details within 5 minutes of ordering unbelievable.

  18. Building Materials Direct

    Lovely to deal with a professional company who can deliver on their promise.

  19. Sandra Smith

    A month or so ago, I began experiencing joint pain and fatigue. Not one to wait, my partner ordered for a Healgen Rapid Antigen home test kit online and it arrived within 24 hours. Not surprisingly, my results came back positive for COVID-19. I went to the hospital right away and they too confirmed my status. I was placed on medication and not long thereafter, had made a full recovery. Were it not for the home test, and my super cautious partner, I would have probably ‘waited it out’ hoping it would ‘go away’ and probably wound up dead from COVID-19. These home tests could not have come at a better time. Their quick processing of samples make them a perfect complimentary method to PCR tests.

  20. Scott N

    Well now I know why they have all 5 star reviews.

  21. Ricki Wang

    Great test kit just what we needed for our weekly staff checkups.

    • admin_handstation

  28. Evelyn Harper

    I am a stay-at-home mum with twin boys aged 10. We decided to test our entire family so as to know the measures we should adopt to stay safe. Since we had no symptoms and could not go for the NHS PCR tests, we bought the Healgen Rapid Antigen home test kits and performed the tests ourselves. Initially, I was a tad apprehensive of how it would go down with the kids but all went well! The kits had all the items we needed for the tests and the instructions were pretty simple and straightforward.

  29. Julie
