Our antigen tests (also known as lateral flow tests) use flowflex CE marked test kits that offer a combined accuracy of 98.6% accuracy (96.8% sensitivity and and 99.3% specificity - well above the performance standards set by the World Health Organisation (≥97% specificity and ≥80% sensitivity). Our testing kits are approved for self-swab and home use with the ‘CE 0123’ mark.
Covid testing for travel is often time-sensitive, so we include Free Standard Delivery as standard. We aim to deliver the lateral flow tests to you within 2-3 days. However, you can receive your lateral flow tests within 1-2 days with a tracked service at an additional cost of £2.
