Humans have a high susceptibility to COVID-19, an acute respiratory infectious illness. COVID-19 is spreading fast worldwide, with infected patients serving as the primary transmission vectors. The majority of COVID-19 infections are asymptomatic, meaning the infected individuals do not experience any symptoms and spread the virus without realizing they are infected.
Epidemiological studies have found that the incubation period for COVID-19 is between 1 and 14 days, with most infections taking hold within the first 7 days. A dry cough that comes on suddenly or persists, a diminished sense of smell or taste, extreme tiredness, and a high body temperature or fever are the hallmarks of this illness.
CE Certification for Safe Use at Home
While other tests may attempt to incorporate a nasal swab into their procedure, they do not have the necessary clinical evidence. In contrast, our test was developed specifically for this purpose.
Although it is technically a nasopharyngeal test, Innova claims their procedure can be administered on the inside of the nose. However, the results show an accuracy of 40-50% in Birmingham and Liverpool. Healgen is another company claiming that its test can be performed through nasal swabs. Alternatively, you can buy FlowFlex COVID-19 test and see the results for yourself.
Hughes Covid Test Kits – Easy to use testing
The test’s user-friendliness makes it a breeze to administer to yourself and your loved ones in the privacy of your own home.
Normal Test Kit
The standard antigen test kit uses a swab that is inserted 9–10cm into the nasal passage.
hughes Test Kit
The nasal swab in the Hughes antigen test kit only goes in around 1–2 centimetres.
While other nasopharyngeal tests require a doctor’s assistance and swabs to be placed 9–10 cm into the nasal cavity, our tests just need to be placed 1-2 cm into the nose.
We have a patented system for increasing the sensitivity of our lateral flow test, which allows for a more accurate reading of the sample. In contrast, the colloidal gold approach is used in every other test cassette and is far less sensitive for identifying the CoV-SARS-2 antigen. Because of this, our test can be relied upon to provide reliable results regardless of the specimen type or collecting technique used. Buy our antigen tests and check!
Hughes Healthcare Covid-19 test process
To begin, a nasal swab is taken from the patient being tested.
Place the swab into a vial containing 2 ml of Lysis Solution. Swab samples should be thoroughly mixed and compressed to the bottom of the vial before use.
Thoroughly mix the swab and take the test cassette out of its foil sleeve.
A test card is splattered with three to four drops of the sample. In around 15 minutes, you’ll be able to see the outcome.
The Hughes healthcare antigen test can be completed in no more than 15 minutes, and the results are interpreted below.
Each individual test, as well as the swab, lysis vials, and packaging, is of the highest quality and simplicity of use. Everything about the evaluation indicates that this is a top-tier, commercially available product.
STORAGE:The Hughes lateral flow test kit is suitable for room-temperature storage. It can also be chilled between 2-30°C. The kit needs to stay in its bag until it’s time to utilize it. Neither should the test be frozen nor should it be used past the date of expiration indicated on the sealed bag. This product has a two-year shelf life. HandStations offers easy access to the most reliable COVID testing products on the market because of our dedication to supplying only the best products to our consumers.
With official support from the government, a simple self-administration procedure, and results in as little as 15 minutes, this testing kit is a convenient and painless option. The Hughes antigen test, which Public Health England validated, uses gold nanoshell technology to provide more reliable findings than competing tests. The UK Government’s Porton Down Laboratory, which helps the Department of Health and Social Care examine all lateral flow tests, has confirmed this Hughes antigen test to be highly accurate at numerous viral loads.
Anybody may use this antigen test kit due to the simple approach that doesn’t require you to push a swab too intrusively up your nose as with other tests. You also don’t need to forego taking any foods or drinks 30 minutes prior to the test. Simply dip the swab into the buffer solution and insert it into each nostril for 1–2 centimetres. The Hughes SARS-CoV-2 antigen rapid test is so simple to use that the Austrian government has authorized students to take the test on their own at school without the presence of a medical professional.
