Can I get an instant COVID-19 test?

An instant COVID-19 test will give you results in just 15 minutes, allowing you to make quick decisions to suit you and your employees where you are managing a team of staff and one, or several of them, has tested positive.

Whilst PCR laboratory testing is considered to be the leader in COVID-19 testing, it does take longer to give a result, so when you require a quick answer an instant COVID-19 test will save you time, worry and ultimately your bottom line as it can help protect your business from unwarranted COVID-19 absences and the likelihood of a widespread breakout across your workforce.

Instant COVID-19 testing can be carried out onsite, by your employees, using a self-contained sample collection kit. The comprehensive instructions guide the user through the sample collection process and how to test a sample using the enclosed lateral flow, immunoassay device.

The device gives a reading within 15 minutes, revealing either a negative or positive result. The immunoassay device is proven to have a sensitivity rating of up to 97.5% and specificity rate of over 99.9% for the COVID-19 antigen.
