    Keeping our staff safe

    Posted by Booking Online on 8th Feb 2021

    We've had a rapid increase of covid19 in our office this week, affecting half of our team within 2 days so I purchased some self-test kits and antibody test kits so my team could test themselves. Three people (feeling unwell) were identified as testing positive and sent home, and those that have already had covid19 had antibody tests to check they have some level of immunity. It's important to check those around you, especially if you have been in contact with or had covid19, to see if you are A: Positive, B: Have antibodies but may still have the virus, or C: Have antibodies but unlikely to still be carrying the virus. My test today shows I have anti-bodies (I got covid symptoms that were borderline hospital admission) and unlikely to have the virus present. Because I have been in close contact with team members who have covid19, I am still keeping my distance from vulnerable people, including my parents as the risk is just too much for me.

    Great for larger sites

    Posted by Theo on 4th Feb 2021

    As this kit comes with two bottles of reagent & is Nasal only it's ideal for our larger site when we daily test the workforce. We will be sending the other ActiveXpress kits to our smaller offices as they have individually wrapped reagents.

    Full selection

    Posted by Robert on 2nd Feb 2021

    So happy to be introducing these kits to help keep my employees safe. We had an incident where an individual came to the office who wasn't presenting symptoms but later tested positive & caused huge issues for us with half our team having to self isolate. We have now ordered a full selection of the test kits to see which works best for us before placing a larger order. Very happy with all the help & guidance from UK Wholesales who are our preferred supplier. This will help keep my staff safe & any visitors or company partners we meet will have to present a negative test. This will help keep our company running & reduce operational costs of having people off work whilst also keeping the staff safe which is our main priority.

Overview

The novel coronaviruses belong to the β genus. COVID-19 is an acute respiratory infectious disease. People are generally susceptible. Currently, the patients infected by the novel coronavirus are the main source of infection; asymptomatic infected people can also be an infectious source. Based on the current epidemiological investigation, the incubation period is 1 to 14 days, mostly 3 to 7 days. The main manifestations include fever, fatigue and dry cough. Nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, myalgia and diarrhea are found in a few cases.

Antigen is generally detectable in upper respiratory specimens during the acute phase of infection. Rapid diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infection will help healthcare professionals to treat patients and control the disease more efficiently and effectively.

Product Information
The Coronavirus Ag Rapid Test Cassette (Swab) is an in vitro immunochromatographic assay for the qualitative detection of nucleocapsid protein antigen from SARS-CoV-2 in nasopharyngeal (NP) swab specimens directly or after the swabs have been added to viral transport media from individuals who are suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider. It is intended to aid in the rapid diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infections. The Coronavirus Ag Rapid Test Cassette (Swab) does not differentiate between SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2.

Benefits

  • Rapid testing for SARS-CoV-2 antigen within 15 minutes
  • Facilitates patient treatment decisions quickly
  • Simple, time-saving procedure
  • All necessary reagents provided & no equipment needed
  • High sensitivity and specificity

Test Procedure:

1. Specimen Collection

  • Use the nasopharyngeal swab supplied in the kit
  • Carefully insert the swab into the nostril of the patient, reaching the surface of posterior nasopharynx that presents the most secretion under visual inspection.
  • Swab over the surface of the posterior nasopharynx.
  • Rotate the swab several times. Withdraw the swab from the nasal cavity.

2. Sample preparation

  • Insert the test extraction tube into the workstation
  • Make sure that the tube is standing firm and reaches the bottom of the workstation
  • Add 0.3 mL (about 10 drops) of the sample extraction buffer into the extraction tube.
  • Insert the swab into the extraction tube which contains 0.3 mL of the extraction buffer. Roll the swab at least 6 times while pressing the head against the bottom and side of the extraction tube. Leave the swab in the extraction tube for 1 minute.
  • Squeeze the tube several times with fingers from outside of the to immerse the swab
  • Fit the dropper tip with filter on top the extraction tube tightly
  • Remove the swab. The extracted solution will be used as test sample.

3. Interpretation of Results

  • Allow the test device, test sample and buffer to equilibrate to room temperature prior to testing

Healgen Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Test

  • Remove test device from the sealed pouch just prior to the testing and lay flat on work bench.
  • Ensure the nozzle with filter is fitted on to the sample extraction tube tightly.
  • Reverse the sample extraction tube, and add 4 drops (about 100 μL) of test sample by squeezing the extracted
  • solution tube into the sample window.
  • Wait for the colored band(s) to appear. The result should be read in 15 minutes.
  • Do not interpret the result after 20 minutes.

Test results:

  • POSITIVE - The presence of two lines as control line (C) and test line (T) within the result window indicates a positive result.
  • NEGATIVE* - The presence of only control line (C) within the result window indicates a negative result.
  • INVALID - If the control line (C) is not visible within the result window after performing the test, the result is considered invalid. Some causes of invalid results are because of not following the directions correctly or the test may have deteriorated beyond the expiration date. It is recommended that the specimen be re-tested using a new test.

Note: The intensity of color in the test line region (T) may vary depending on the concentration of analytes present in the specimen. Therefore, any shade of color in the test line region (T) should be considered positive. Please note that this is a qualitative test only and cannot determine the concentration of analytes in the specimen. Insufficient specimen volume, incorrect operating procedure or expired tests are the most likely reasons for control band failure.

(*Negative results do not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection, particularly those who have been in contact with the virus. Follow up testing with a molecular diagnostic test should be considered to rule out infection in these individuals.)

In-vitro use only.

What is a Lateral Flow Test?

Lateral flow tests are designed to detect a live virus in people who are highly infectious, whether they are displaying symptoms or not. Their rapid turnaround time allows for mass testing in workplaces and schools without the need for expensive laboratory equipment and analysis.

How Quickly Does it Deliver a Result?

Both of our lateral flow test kits provide a visual, easy to read result in just 15 minutes, which means those who test positive can be instructed to isolate quickly and minimise exposure of COVID-19 in your school or workplace.

What is the Difference Between Antibody and Antigen Testing?

An antibody test is a blood test to determine if you’ve already been exposed to COVID-19. It works by detecting antibodies in your blood or serum.

An antigen test looks for an active COVID-19 infection such as the SARS-CoV-2 virus. If your antigen test is positive, you should self-isolate at home and follow government guidance. 

Does my Testing Kit Contain Everything I Need?

Our COVID-19 testing kits come supplied with clear instructions and all the necessary tools to carry out the test - no extra equipment is needed. The packs include a workstation to lay out the contents in a way that helps workplaces deliver mass testing with ease, organisation and efficiency.

While no specialist equipment or laboratory analysis is required, we recommend that these products are used by competent people within a workplace or education setting.

Are Specialist Personnel Required to Administer the Tests?

As highlighted above, we recommend that these products are used by competent people within an education or workplace environment.

How Often Should I Check for Symptoms or Test Employees?

This depends on the safety measures that your organisation needs to put in place. The scale of these will be impacted by the size of your workforce, the risk factors identified in your contingency plan and the effect of any requirement to isolate on your ability to continue running your business.

As an employer, you need to decide the appropriate timescale between tests. For example, in some sectors (such as health and social care) where interactions with vulnerable individuals are common, repeat testing may be required more often.

How Do I Store My Testing Kit?

The kit can be stored at room temperature or refrigerated (2-30°C) - please follow instructions on each pack. The test device is stable through the expiration date printed on the sealed pouch. The test device must remain in the sealed pouch until use. 

Please read instructions fully before starting any of the tests. DO NOT FREEZE. Do not use beyond the expiration date.
 
Are you able to provide any Certifications or Performance Data Relating to the Testing Kits?

Both our COVID-19 testing kits are fully certified with a declaration of EC conformity.

Healgen COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Lateral Flow Test is approved by the UK government and Public Health England.
