CONDUCTING THE TEST
STEP 1: Conduct a nasal swab on the individual being tested. Please ensure to follow the guidelines presented on the device's packaging.
STEP 2: Mix the specimen with the accompanying liquids and cap the mixing tube.
STEP 3: Drop the mixture directly onto the designated area on the test cassette.
STEP 4: Read the results after the appropriate amount of time while following the accompanying instructions.
INTERPRETING THE RESULTS
POSITIVE: Two coloured bands appear on the membrane. One band appears in the control region (C) and another band appears in the test region (T).
NEGATIVE: Only one coloured band appears, in the control region (C).
INVALID: Control band(s) fail to appear. Please kindly note that results from any test that has not produced at least a control band at the specified time read must be discarded. Insufficient specimen volume, incorrect operating procedure or expired tests are the most likely reasons for control band failure. If this occurs, please conduct a new test while closely following the instructions provided.
FAST RESULTS FOR EFFECTIVE TREATMENT
When we’re feeling ill, we want to get back on track as soon as possible. Obtaining fast results allows us to effectively treat the virus quickly and efficiently, lowering the chance of infecting others and keeping our communities, work environments and households healthy.
It’s recommended to begin treatment for flu within 2 days of feeling symptoms. For the COVID-19 virus, it’s recommended that treatment works best when started within 5 days.
The colour intensity in the test region (T) may vary depending on the concentration of analytes present in the specimen. Therefore, any shade of colour in the test region should be considered positive.
Note that this is a qualitative test only and cannot determine the concentration of analytes in the specimen.
This test is intended for professional use only and should not be used as the sole basis for the diagnosis of an infection.
