Superdrug launches SELFCheck self test kits online

Wednesday 18th September 2019

We are pleased to welcome Superdrug as one of our latest retailers supplying SELFCheck self test kits online in the UK.

SELFCheck self test kits allow anybody to check whether they have markers in their blood or urine for common health conditions such as gluten sensitivity (coeliac disease), colon polyps and stomach ulcers. The SELFCheck tests take around 5 to 10 minutes to complete and you get a result there and then in the privacy of your own home - avoiding the need to send your blood sample away, waiting days or weeks for results and sometimes expensive lab fees.

But perhaps one of the key benefits of the SELFCheck brand is that consumers can be confident that the tests give results as reliable as a doctor's test and are CE certified medical products that meet all UK and EU regulatory requirements according to the In vitro Diagnostic Directive (IVDD 98/79EC) and have independently been demonstrated to be easy to use by non-medical people.

All SELFCheck tests are assembled in the UK at JR Biomedical's ISO13485:2016 and ISO9001:2015 research and manufacturing laboratories based at the OpTIC Technology Centre, which is part of Glyndwr University in North Wales.

Although these tests provide reliable results, they are not intended to replace a diagnosis by a medical professional. Nevertheless, whether the test result is positive or negative, regulated self test kits such as SELFCheck can help prompt users to visit their pharmacist or GP earlier than they might have done if they had not considered a self test kit.

Always speak with your pharmacist or GP if you are concerned about your symptoms.
