COVID-19

RAPID ANTIGEN TEST

The TESTSEALLABS™ COVID-19 Antigen provides results in just 15 minutes, making it highly suitable for quick action at the point-of-care. Anterior (shallow) nasal sampling collects from the front area of the nose and is therefore less invasive, reduces patient discomfort and simplifies the overall testing procedure.

Anterior nasal swab samples may be particularly useful for children and elderly people, especially when used for frequent testing. This simplified collection method also allows for the option for patients to self-collect under supervision, offering reduced physical contact and exposure and further protection for healthcare practitioners.

Results in 15 minutes.
