A recent article was published on the National Health Executive website about Panodyne tests which can be read here.
Panodyne have produced a very useful Declaration Form for each of their test kits as attached which can be used each time someone is tested and kept as an internal record. Unlike PCR test kits, Lateral flow test kits do not need to be sent off to a lab to be processed and will provide results within 10-15 minutes. If the individual tested is positive, it is recommended that they immediately self-isolate and arrange to take a PCR test.
