How it Works
The test kit is delivered to users’ doorsteps and contains an easy-to-use throat collection swab, with a “how to use” guide enclosed in the instruction leaflet. Once the collection is complete and the sample is registered online (through our website), the test kit can then be returned directly to our partner laboratory via the provided pre-paid return box. All kits are equipped with swab buffer and a biohazard bag, the kit box is also labelled with “Priority 20" sticker on top - in line with the published guidelines for sample handling and transportation.
The laboratory adheres to high standards of quality assurance, quality controls and biosafety.
The testing method for COVID-19 is a qPCR assay based on the detection of the viral nucleic material (RNA) within the virus. The presence of this nucleic material in a throat swab sample indicates infection, whereas its’ absence indicates a negative result.
The genesig® COVID-19 assay (2019-nCoV) Clinical Performance Evaluation and Inclusivity / Exclusivity Data statement showed after rigorous evaluations by the National Infection Service, Public Health England to have >99% specificity. In addition, an independent clinical evaluation of the assay by an NHS clinical laboratory has found that the test was 100% specific when tested against known positive and negative SARS-CoV-2 clinical samples.
COVID-19 Test in now available at £199. Frontline NHS staff are eligible to receive subsidised refund of 50% on testing kits. For more information on COVID-19, visit https://www.rightangled.co/products/coronavirus-test.
