Our testing supply and process is completely independent from any government processes, as such the sale of these tests does not limit any capacity for the government or in turn the NHS access to these tests.
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory tract infection caused by a newly emergent coronavirus – Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) - which was first recognised in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China, in December 2019.
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, dry cough and difficulty breathing. These symptoms have the potential to develop into a very severe acute respiratory illness. Evidence shows that fatality rates increase with age, gender, body weight, ethnicity and comorbidities.
Symptoms can take up to 14 days to appear so it is difficult to know if someone has been infected ahead of these conditions appearing. In the meantime, infected people can spread the virus unknowingly.
If you are currently experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 coronavirus, or know of recently being in contact with somebody who has, you are able to use the kit to test if you are currently infected.
You will receive an email to allow you to review your results.
All tests are analysed in a CPA accredited lab using PCR which is approved by Public Health
England. Please note that it is not possible to guarantee that any test kit is 100% accurate and
therefore there may be instances where results obtained from the test produces a false positive
or negative even when used correctly.
Results should be interpreted by a trained professional in conjunction with the patient's history and clinical signs and symptoms, and epidemiological risk factors.
Yes, it may be worthwhile testing your Vitamin D levels as Vitamin D may reduce COVID-19 severity by suppressing cytokine storm in COVID-19 patients. Leading researchers note “the most vulnerable group of population for COVID-19 is also the one that has the most deficit in vitamin D" The goal should be to raise 25(OH)D concentrations above 40–60 ng/mL (100–150 nmol/L).Vitamin D is crucial to activating our immune defenses and that without sufficient intakof the vitamin, the killer cells of the immune system (T cells) will not be able to react to and fight off serious infections in the body. Vitamin D also upregulates anti-microbial peptides (a critical component of host defence against infection).
