As the roadmap out of lockdown continues, we know that a lot of people are considering leaving the house more frequently, for varying reasons. Whether you are going to visit family outside, looking to return to work, or caring for a vulnerable family member – we are here to help. We are offering Covid Rapid Antigen Tests in Colchester to help you get on with your day, safely.
Rapid Antigen Testing is designed to detect an active Covid infection. It is used to identify those who may still be spreading the virus, despite not displaying Covid symptoms. This test can prove critical for individuals or businesses who require regular testing to operate. However, this test is not suitable for those who are currently showing Covid symptoms. Due to its rapid nature, our rapid antigen test in Colchester allows for early detection of Covid, so that action can be taken swiftly.
Please Note: If yourself, or anyone within your household, receives a positive result, you should follow current guidance with regards to self-isolating.
As mentioned within our Covid PCR Testing blog post, Covid PCR tests detect viral RNA, which forms part of the genetic code of the virus. However, the Rapid Antigen Test specifically checks for the SARS-CoV-2 antigen nucleocapsid protein. Both tests require swab samples, however the rapid antigen test uses a method similar to a pregnancy test. Moreover, your results do not require lab testing; they appear within the kit itself. We also offer Covid PCR Testing, as well as participating in the Test to Release Scheme, so that you can jet off and return to the UK with your mind at ease.
PRICE:£75 with certificate
If you are looking to ensure that you are not currently infection with Covid, we offer a Rapid Antigen Test. A nasal swab is required to carry out your test.
