If you suspect that you, or a loved one, may have been infected with Covid-19 or the flu, you are going to want to take a test to confirm your diagnosis. Covid-19 and flu testing has become an important part of stopping the spread viruses and helps to ensure that those who test positive will quarantine themselves. Taking a rapid antigen test is one of the easiest ways to test for Covid-19 and the flu as they allow you to take the test from the comfort of your own home and provide fast results. When using the flu A/B and rapid covid-19 test, it is important to only test once you have shown symptoms as this will impact the reliability of the test. Once you have started to show symptoms, you can take the test. If you think you may have contracted Covid-19  or the flu from someone, quarantine yourself and wait to see if symptoms develop. 

What are the Precautions to Be Considered While Performing the Covid -19 and Flu A/B Test?

When taking a rapid antigen test, it is vital that you carefully follow the guidelines and instructions that will be provided in the instructions for use pamphlet. Taking the test incorrectly could lead to invalid results, which will mean you will have to take another test. To avoid this, carefully read the instructions in the instructions for use pamphlet that will be provided in each TouchBio rapid antigen self-test kit! 

It is also extremely important to collect enough of a sample when doing the test. As the TouchBio rapid self-test kit tests nasal fluid, you will have to stick the swab quite far up your nose to get an accurate result. Though this procedure may feel a bit uncomfortable, it is vital to do it properly! The rapid antigen test accuracy will depend on the sample that you give, so be sure that you are following the correct procedures. 

How to Analyse Your Rapid Antigen Test Results?

Once the test has been taken, you will be able to see the results in about 15-20 minutes. To analyse your results, you will need to look at the lines that show up after this time has passed. Please see below for the results if you have tested positive. 

  • If both (C) and (A) lines are visible, Influenza A Positive.
  • If both (C) and (B) lines are visible, Influenza B Positive.
  • If all three (C), (A) and (B) lines are visible, Influenza A and Influenza B Positive.
  • If both (C) and (T) lines are visible, SARS-CoV-2 Positive.
  • If all lines are visible, Influenza A, Influenza B and SARS-CoV-2 Positive.

If your rapid home test results are negative, the control lines (C) will appear but none of the test lines will be visible
