COVID-19 is an acute respiratory infectious disease, and humans are generally susceptible. Currently, the patients infected by COVID-19 are the main source of infection and the disease is spreading rapidly around the world. COVID-19 is especially problematic as the majority of those infected are asymptomatic, meaning that they don’t display symptoms and unknowingly spread the virus around. Based on current epidemiological investigations, COVID-19’s incubation period is 1 to 14 days, with most infections taking hold within 3 to 7 days. 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.

CE Mark for Home Use – Fully Approved.

Our test is a true nostril swab test and has only ever been designed as such, other tests will try to modify their test to include the nostril swab, but have do not have the clinical evidence to support that adjustment. Innova has claimed their test can be performed on the nostril wall despite being a nasopharyngeal test and as evidenced, you get the result of 40-50% accuracy in both Birmingham and Liverpool. Healgen are another provider that are trying to claim that their test can be done in the nostril however have no clinical reports done with this swab mechanism which will incur significant inaccuracies.

The easy to use format of the test makes it extremely easy to test yourself and your family from the comfort of your own home.

hughes Test Kit

The Hughes test kit goes only
1-2cm swab into the nostril.

Our swab only has to go 1-2cm into the nostril, all other nasopharyngeal tests have to be performed by a doctor and need to go 9-10 cm deep into the nasal cavity. Our lateral flow test has a unique patented sensitivity enhancement system in our test cassette. Whilst all other cassettes use the colloidal gold method, which is significantly less sensitive for detecting the CoV-SARS-2 antigen. This is in part what allows our test to be so accurate across any specimens and sample collection method.
