Do I need a COVID-19 test?
Most people have mild illness and are able to recover at home; however testing results may be helpful to inform decision-making about who you come in contact with. You should consider testing if you meet any of the following criteria:
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms if COVID-19
If you have come into contact with someone who has COVID-19
If you have returned from a country with a high incidence of COVID-19
Instructions for Use
Place the cassette on a level surface at room temperature (15-25°C, 59-77°F).
Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water to ensure fingertips are clean and dry.
Puncture one of your fingers using the lancet provided.
Use a clean paper towel or similar material to wipe off the first drop of blood.
Gently massage the finger from knuckle to fingertip to allow a second drop of blood to form.
Add 1 drop of blood (using the pipette provided) into the cassette’s well directly above the arrow.
Add 3 drops of buffer (using the same pipette) into the well.
Wait 10 minutes.
Read the results (see interpretation of results section).
How does the coronavirus test work?
COVID-19 Rapid Test Kit is a qualitative lateral flow immunochromatographic assay for the detection of IgM and IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in human whole blood, serum or plasma samples.
The cassette contains antigens from SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19 conjugated to gold nanoparticles, which are collected by antibodies in the sample. Antibodies against human IgM and IgG are coated in their respective regions on a nitrocellulose membrane, where they create a coloured line due to the gold nanoparticles. A control region on the upper end of the cassette confirms if the test has been successful.
How quickly can I get the results?
Within 15 minutes.
How do I understand the results?
The readout should show 1 line in the C (control) region. Purple lines may appear next to the G (IgG) and M (IgM) regions depending on exposure to coronavirus. Faint lines are treated as a positive result.
C, G, and M regions are positive: user recently infected or re-infected with coronavirus.
C and G regions positive, M region negative: user previously infected with coronavirus.
C and M regions positive, G region negative: user recently infected with coronavirus for the first time.
C region positive, G and M regions negative: user not showing immune response to coronavirus.
C region negative, G and M regions either positive or negative: test did not function correctly.
