SELFCheck COVID-19 Antigen Test
Monday 5th July 2021
Today, the first production batch of our COVID-19 lateral flow test was assembled by our team at our ISO13485:2016 certified labs in North Wales. Unlike most tests provided by the UK Department for Health and NHS, these are a commercial alternative, designed and certified specifically for self testing. For example, our SELFCheck test only requires a nasal swab rather than a more invasive nasopharyngeal or tonsil swab. Anything that makes a self test easier to use by laypersons is more likely to improve compliance and reliability of results.
The SELFCheck COVID-19 Antigen Test is a rapid immunochromatographic (lateral flow) test for the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein. The test can be used by people who are asymptomatic or have experienced an onset of symptoms for less than 7 days.
