The Panodyne SARS-COV-2 Antigen Rapid Test Kit uses a specially designed swab to determine whether or not a person is currently infected with COVID-19. The steps are easy and straightforward.
Simply insert the swab into the nostril and mouth to take samples from the nasal cavity and tonsils.
Place the swab into an extraction tube that contains approximately 0.5ml of a specially designed virus preservation solution. After just 2 minutes, the specimen is placed on a testing cassette, and an accurate result is revealed within 15 minutes.
The accuracy ratings for the Panodyne Antigen Test Kit are up to 98% accurate and it can be used by medical professionals to confirm current infection. Data collected from test results can be used to investigate the spread of the virus, further inform safe working practices and help to curb the virus.
Typically Covid-19 testing process can be highly invasive and time-consuming. The swab measures just 15cm, making it more comfortable for those being tested, in particular younger children who may not fully understand current circumstances.
