Additional Information

Antibody testing can detect whether a person has been infected previously or has a vaccine-induced immune response.

Testing should be undertaken 14 days or more following exposure, onset of symptoms or post-vaccination. The incubation period of COVID-19 ranges from between 1 to 14 days, with the majority of cases manifesting with symptoms at 3–5 days.

• This service is not suitable for anyone showing symptoms of COVID-19 or anyone who thinks they may have COVID-19. If you have any symptoms, please stay at home and follow UK government guidance

• Customers must bring their passport to the appointment to verify their identity, without this, the test will not be able to go ahead.

• If using this service to travel, the customer is responsible for checking the COVID-19 test requirements in accordance with the destination of travel.

• Whilst every effort will be made, we cannot guarantee results will be received the next day.
The lab is a 3rd party business and we have no control over their schedule.

• Due to the sensitivity of these tests, there is a very small chance the test result could be inconclusive. If your test result is inconclusive a full refund will be provided, and you will be invited to book another test within the time frame to suit you but this cannot be guaranteed. As you have been refunded for the first inconclusive test, you will be required to pay for the retest

• GP Matters will not be held liable for losses, costs, damage that you suffer or incur as a result of any delays in receiving the Covid19 test results or as a result of inconclusive test results

• GP Matters will also not be liable to you for any losses, costs or damages that you suffer or incur as a result of receiving a positive Covid19 test result (including, if you are unable to travel as a result of testing positive)

INTENDED USE - Covid19 Rapid lateral flow test (LFD test / Antigen test)

The SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Lateral Flow Test Cassette is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 antigen in a Nasal swab. The identification is based on monoclonal antibodies specific to the Nucleocapsid(N)protein of SARS-CoV-2. It is intended to aid in the rapid differential diagnosis of COVID-19 infection.

SUMMARY: The novel coronaviruses belong to the β genus. COVID-19 is an acute respiratory infectious disease. Currently, patients infected by the novel coronavirus are the main source of other people getting infected; asymptomatic and symptomatic infected people can both be an infectious source. Based on the current epidemiological investigations, the incubation period is 1 to 14 days, mostly 3 to 7 days. The main manifestations include fever, fatigue and dry cough. Nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, myalgia and diarrhea are found in a few cases.

PRINCIPLE: The SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Lateral Flow Test Cassette (Nasal Swab) is a qualitative, lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of the N protein of SARS-CoV-2 in Nasal swabs. In this test (LFD test), antibodies specific to the N protein of SARS-CoV-2 are separately coated on the test line regions of the test cassette. During testing, the extracted specimen reacts with the antibodies to N protein of SARS-CoV-2 that are coated onto gold colloid particles. The mixture migrates up the membrane to react with the antibodies to N protein of SARS-CoV-2 on the membrane and generate one coloured line in the test region. The presence of this coloured line in the test region indicates a positive result. To serve as a procedural control, a coloured line will always appear in the control region if the test has performed properly.

REAGENTS: The test cassette contains anti-SARS-CoV-2 Nucleocapsid protein antibody gold colloid particles conjugate and anti-SARS-CoV-2 Nucleocapsid protein antibody coated onto the membrane.

PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS: Sensitivity, Specificity and Accuracy The SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Lateral Flow Test Cassette (Nasal Swab) has been evaluated with specimens obtained from different clinical sites where the specimens were collected with Nasal Swabs. The Nasal Swabs were randomised and blind tested by operators following the instructions for use. RT-PCR was used as the reference method for the SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test Cassette. Specimens were considered positive if PCR indicated a positive result.

Relative Sensitivity: 96.1% (95%CI*:91.2%-98.7%)*

Relative Specificity: 99.0% (95%CI*:97.5%-99.7%)*

Relative accuracy: 98.3% (95%CI*:96.9%-99.2%)*

* Confidence Intervals

Detection Limit: The LOD for the COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test Cassette (Nasal Swab) was established using limiting dilutions of an inactivated viral sample. The control (BEI RESOURCES; SARS-Related Coronavirus 2, Isolate USA-WA1/2020, Gamma- Irradiated; NR-52287 #70039067) was supplied at a concentration of 2.8 x 106TCID50/mL. The Estimated LOD is 90 TCID50/Swab.

Cross Reactivity: The SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test Cassette has been tested for Influenza A virus, Influenza B virus, Adenovirus, Coxsackie virus, Parainfluenza Virus Type1, Parainfluenza Virus Type2, Parainfluenza Virus Type3, Parainfluenza Virus Type4a, Enterovirus, Mumps virus, Respiratory syncytial virus, Rhinovirus, Bordetella pertussis, Haemophilus parainfluenzae, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus agalactiae, Neisseria meningitides, Streptococcus sp. group A, Streptococcus sp. group B, Streptococcus sp. group C, Candida albicans, Human Metapneumovirus (hMPV), Legionella pneumophila, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Pneumocystis jirovecii(PJP)-S cerevisiae Recombinant, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus epidermis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus salivarius, Human coronavirus 229E, Human coronavirus OC43, Human coronavirus NL63, MERS-coronavirus positive specimens. The results showed no cross reactivity.
