People looking to travel to countries outside of the “air bridge” agreement with the UK, may be requested to have proof of a negative Covid 19 PCR test within a certain number of days upon arrival.
The Randox COVID-19 Home Test Kit uses Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technologies.
PCR tests are designed to diagnose individuals with an active infection i.e. those currently infected with SARS-COV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
Unlike antibody-based tests which detect the presence of antibodies produced by the body’s immune system in response to the virus and indicate previous infection, PCR tests detect the virus’s genetic material – specifically RNA fragments – and are used to diagnose a current infection.
The sampling process is simple and takes just a few minutes. Each kit contains a swab and sample collection tube.
The Randox COVID-19 test recently underwent evaluation from and has been accepted by Public Health England. In its evaluation of the test, Public Health England’s report noted that the assay correctly identified all positive and negative samples without exception.
The test is also being used within the UK Government’s national COVID-19 testing programme.
