SureScreen Rapid COVID-19 Test
- Result within 10 mins
- Simple Finger Prick Sample
- Safe & Doctor-Administered
Common symptoms associated with the disease include a dry cough, fever and fatigue which can take up to 14 days to manifest. This can make it challenging to know if a person has been infected, and cause the virus to spread unknowingly. Getting a COVID test is currently the most effective method of halting the spread of the disease and protecting yourself and others.
The COVID Rapid Test Cassette is for professional use only and works to identify the body’s reaction to the virus after becoming infected. The test yields a yes/no result within 10 minutes and is easy to carry out, involving a simple finger prick sample that works in the same way as a blood glucose test. As well as blood, the same day rapid COVID test can be run with serum or plasma samples.
Rapid screening for COVID-19 saves on time and costs when compared to a standard laboratory screening. It will help control the spread of the virus but pinpointing cases of infection accurately.
The test is doctor-administered in-house at our Richmond clinic, so you can feel confident you’re in safe, professional hands when getting tested. The test even identifies infection in mild or asymptomatic cases also. Our GPs here in Richmond, are highly experienced and trained.
Our kit is 99.6% accurate for detecting IgG antibody and is CE certified, which means it is marked for professional use only. No medications, drugs or other proteins in the blood affect the test results. Furthermore, young children, babies and pregnant women can also be tested with no issues whatsoever.
The test is a lateral flow immunoassay test. These tests are devices (such as pregnancy tests), designed to identify the presence of a particular substance in a liquid sample.
The coronavirus test is suitable and safe for everyone, including babies, young children and pregnant or breastfeeding women.
The test has been used in a clinical study in Wuhan, China, where it was compared to conventional laboratory tests for COVID diagnosis. It was found to be 97% accurate.
Having a test carried out by a qualified medical professional is the most effective way to be sure of your results, and allows you to take appropriate next steps after leaving the clinic. The tests we offer are doctor administered only, a requirement of manufacturers.
You will have the results within 10 minutes of taking the test, so you can leave the clinic with a definitive yes/no answer.
The coronavirus test is carried out in our private clinic in Richmond, Surrey or at the convenience of your own home.
