PRODUCT DETAILS & SPECIFICATIONS

These Flowflex COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Lateral Flow Test Kits use the latest patented technology in detecting proteins ensuring that it can detect new strains of the COVID-19 virus. They are fully approved by UK Government Public Health England, Porton Down Laboratory for Home Use, are very quick and simple to administer, and offer a combined testing accuracy of up to 98.8% to find out if you currently have COVID-19 in just 15 minutes.

These lateral flow tests kits are packed individually (boxes of 5 and boxes of 25 are also available).

These Flowflex tests are fully Home Use approved and completely non-invasive as they detect the nucleocapsid protein antigen from SARS-CoV-2 via a nasal swab. They differ from your usual nasopharyngeal lateral flow COVID-19 test as the test only needs to enter the lower nostril, therefore, reducing discomfort without compromising on accuracy. The test only requires a 1-2cm swab, unlike the standard 9-10cm swab into the nostril.

The test kits are uniquely packaged with their own individual serial number for mass testing and tracing to ensure easy distribution and to eliminate the risk of contamination to your workforce.  The tests are suitable for testing large groups of people, including regular testing of employees in education, healthcare, sports, commercial, retail, travel, and care industries.

Clinical trials from various countries show a combined accuracy of 98.8% (97.1% relative sensitivity and 99.5% relative specificity) for these tests.

Each individual test kit includes:

1 x Individually sealed test cassette
1 x Individually sealed disposable swab (1-2cm into the lower nostril)
1 x Pre-filled extraction buffer tube
1 x Instructions
1 x Waste Bag

The UK Government Public Health England, Porton Down Laboratory, which reviews all lateral flow tests for the DHSC/UK Government, has validated these tests to have exemplary accuracy at multiple viral loads, including for asymptomatic patients, and across the new different variants. You can find them in the list here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/assessment-and-procurement-of-coronavirus-covid-19-tests/outcome-of-the-evaluation-of-rapid-diagnostic-assays-for-specific-sars-cov-2-antigens-lateral-flow-devices

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 SARS-CoV-2 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 SARS-CoV-2 antigen has been detected and the result is positive. You currently have COVID-19, and a PCR confirmation test should be carried out.

Please note that if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, you must follow Government guidelines in terms of isolating and testing. We recommend you read the Official Government Guidance regarding SARS-COV-2 Lateral Flow Tests here.

These FlowFlex Rapid Lateral Flow Antigen Test Kits are MHRA registered, CE Marked, and ISO certified.
