With rapid testing continuing to play a vital role in preventing the spread of COVID-19 and following the successful launch of Cignpost Diagnostics Limited’s screening centres within the UK, ExpressTest are conducting a pilot for home testing kits. Upon satisfactory results, ExpressTest will make the kits available on its website.
David Ferreira, leading the project for Cignpost Diagnostics Limited said: “We want to make the gold standard of COVID-19 testing more accessible to consumers across the country. Whether you have symptoms and are self-isolating, have underlying health conditions, or just need that peace of mind to visit eldery or vulnerable relatives should guidelines within your area allow, you can take a self-administered COVID-19 test from the comfort of your own home. We aim to get your results back within 24 hours of us receiving your sample, giving you that peace of mind to move on.”
You can get your COVID-19 test result in just 3 simple steps:
- Order your home testing kit and have it delivered right to your front door, usually the very next day.
- Take the test by swabbing the back of your throat and the nasal passage for better results. Don’t worry, detailed labels and instructions will tell you how.
- Pop the container provided in the pre-paid envelope and return to us.
Following receipt of your swab which will be screened using our gold standard PCR technology, we aim to give you your results via email within 24 hours.
