Technical details about the Covid-19 Test Kit: Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) by RT-qPCR

Testing is performed using a nasopharyngeal swab system which inactivates viral particles at point of sampling and preserves nucleic acids for downstream analysis.  Our lab uses the Genesig® Real-Time PCR Coronavirus Covid-19 (CE IVD) designed to achieve qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA extracted from nasopharyngeal swabs, oropharyngeal swabs and sputum samples. Viral RNA extracted from the sample matrix is purified, amplified and characterised as Covid-19 specific.  The kit is validated to detect 0.58 copies/µl of SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA with a confidence ≥95%. False negative results may be caused by samples outside of viraemic phase. Results and clinical symptoms must be interpreted by a healthcare professional. The Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) by RT-qPCR test is approved by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC).

Please note:

  • The sample is best to be taken in the morning then dropped off at your local post office for same day collection (they need to be posted the same day to arrive within 24 hours to ensure the accuracy of results). Any results received outside of the specified holding time will receive a comment on the report to state the results could be compromised. Samples should be taken and posted Monday to Thursday.
  • Service not available for customers outside the UK, outer Hebrides, Isle of Wright, Isle of Man and Cornwall.
  • All Covid 19 Home Test Kits are sent from our location in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire.
  • If you are planning to submit multiple samples, then all swabs need to be taken at the same time so they can be shipped together for analysis. If you are planning on taking the samples at different times and/or places, then please place separate orders so that we can supply the correct amount of insulated packaging and pre-paid postage labels.
  • This product includes an ice pack to keep the sample cool. Please break the ice pack so that starts to cool just before you put it in the returns box (there is no need to freeze the ice pack).
  • The postal service is not suitable for those with a Saturday or Sunday ‘test’ date. Please check which date you need to test to meet your particular requirements before you purchase a kit online. If you need to test on a Saturday or Sunday, the postal service will NOT be suitable for you.
  • All customers purchasing these tests must use their own judgement about the best date to purchase, carry out and return the test to us. Simplexhealth cannot take responsibility for any test timelines and associated outcomes affecting travel.
  • Suitable for adults and children over 8 years of age.
  • For orders of multiple samples, keep all samples separate and identify each by labelling the returns correctly.

  • Failure to comply with the requirements for sample collection and labelling might result in a failed analysis of your sample. We can not refund orders where instructions have not been followed.
