Lateral flow tests, also known as rapid antigen tests, are quick, easy, and hassle-free giving you instant test results in 30 minutes.

Lateral flow tests are increasingly being acceptable for travel around the world.

Remove the test swab from the packaging ensuring you do not touch the absorbent tip of the swab. Insert the fabric end of the swab into one nostril at a time until you feel a slight resistance Gently rotate the swab five times.

To release the sample squeeze the tube and dispense four drops of solution into the test cassette sample marked as per the instructions. Set the timer and read the results after 20 minutes. After that, registering and submitting your test is as important as taking your lateral flow test.
