Collecting a nasal sample

  4. Gently remove the swab from the left nostril and place into the right nostril, repeat process and then remove

Performing Test:

  1. Place the swab into the extraction vial. Rotate the swab vigorously at least 5 times
  2. Remove the swab making sure the liquid from the swab is kept in the vial tube. Then close by pushing the cap firmly onto the vial tube
  3. Allow three (3) drops of the sample to fall into the sample well

Checking The Results:

  1. Start a timer and review the result after 10 minutes. The test result should not be read after 15 minutes

IMPORTANT Do not move or lift the test cassette during this time.

  • Each test can only be used once
  • Test results must be read at 10 minutes and no later than 15 minutes
  • Interpretation of any result after 15 minutes may yield inaccurate test results
  • If you receive a positive result, you must immediately seek a laboratory PCR test and follow-up care
  • A positive result cannot determine whether you are infectious
  • False negative results are more likely to occur if the test is performed 5 days after symptom onset
  • False negatives are more likely to occur in the later phase of infection and in asymptomatic individuals
  • A negative result does not rule out infection with another type of respiratory virus
  • Negative results should be treated as presumptive only and may not mean you are not infectious. If you are experiencing any COVID symptoms you must seek immediate further laboratory PCR testing and follow up clinical care
  • Repeat testing is recommended (between 24-48 hours after your first test) if there is an ongoing suspicion of infection, being in a high risk setting or where there is an occupational risk or other requirement
