COVID-19 PCR Saliva Self Sample Laboratory Test


Product Information

Designed to detect whether or not you are currently carrying the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19.

The test is validated as having 100% sensitivity and 100% specificity[1]. It is CE marked and results are performed in our partners IS015189 UK laboratory that is approved to share information with Public Health England (PHE).

Compared to alternative COVID-19 testing solutions, such as a PCR swab test, the saliva testing kit is much more user-friendly and non-invasive for improved sample collection and increased accuracy.

If you are purchasing the test kit yourself for home testing, an optional 15 minute post results consultation is included in the £139 price with a registered GP.

Recent studies show that a high percentage of people show no clinical symptoms of the COVID-19 virus, making testing vitally important, particularly for employees who have returned to work or patients who are undergoing treatment, during the coronavirus pandemic.

The COVID test PCR Laboratory Saliva Testing kit can be used for the rapid testing of employees to help employers isolate carriers from the workplace, and patients before receiving treatment. In both cases, this PCR saliva test can help employers/employees and patients/clinicians respectively to make informed decisions quickly during the coronavirus pandemic.
