Our COVID-19 Test Kits combine two Polymerase chain reaction (PCR)techniques – Real-time PCR (RT-PCR) and Reverse PCR (qPCR). The techniques are joined for a better and more accurate in-depth analysis of the viral RNA. With this combination, we have managed to negate the potential drawbacks of RT-PCR.
Multi-gene detection (ORF1a, ORF1b/RdRp, E, or N genes)
Depending on the Test Kit, different viral genes are targeted. This is done for maximum reliability of the tests. Please refer to the attached table for more information on which genes are targeted by which COVID-19 Test Kits.

Provided in your COVID-19 Test Kits you will find vials containing internal control reagents. You can use them to verify the accuracy of the results at any time during the testing process. With them, you can be certain there was no contamination during any of the sample-handling stages.
The components of the kit should be stored at -20°C/-4°F or below until the expiration date stated. You shouldn’t use the kit if it seems defective. Please note that redundant freezing and thawing of the product might lead to inaccurate results.
Our COVID-19 tests are fully GMP and CE-certified, as shown by their respective labels on the product. The FDA has formally cleared our Test Kits as consistently meeting their set of requirements. Our viral COVID-19 tests are also compliant with the ISO 13485 standard. Please note that if you need reassurance regarding the certification of our products, we are willing to send you the copies of any relevant documents upon request!
No test is 100% reliable, and COVID tests are no different. Different testing methods have different specificity and selectivity which determine the average reliability of a test.
Yes. Conversely, if symptoms appear after a test comes back negative, it might be because a person was infected after the sample was collected.
Yes. In such cases it is advised to repeat the test as soon as possible. If you have symptoms, consider having a viral test. If 7-10 days have passed since you were initially tested, consider having a serology test.
Our gloves, gowns, masks, foot covers, and other PPE are made of durable and comfortable materials that will significantly minimise the risk of infection.
Our disposable nitrile gloves allow you to maintain a high level of dexterity while protecting your hands regardless of your profession or task.
