Would you like to add a spare kit (£6.99) to your cart?*

Very infrequently, your swab result may be returned as inconclusive. This can be caused by poor sample taking technique. As a result, you may not have the time to purchase another kit before you need it. We offer a spare kit to avoid this situation. Please note, spare kits cannot be used separately and only one result will be issued.

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.
