Whilst the test kit works very quickly, requires no specialist equipment, is easy to use, and test results are easy to read, the manufacturers recommend that the kit should be administered by medically trained personnel. Also please note that if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, you must follow Government guidelines in terms of isolating and testing. The results will inform you of the following, although please be aware that if the C line does not appear, the test is invalid.
There is 1 negative and 1 positive result:
Negative Result: If only the quality control line (C) appears and the detection line (T) is not visible, then no novel coronavirus antigen has been detected and the result is negative.
Positive Result: C and T - if the quality control line (C) and the detection line (T) appears, then the novel coronavirus antigen has been detected and the result is positive. You currently have COVID-19.
