All the necessary materials are included within the kit, with only 4 quick and straight forward steps required to complete the test.
The test determines your infection status with a high level of accuracy and precision.
Results have been analysed across many SARS-CoV-2 variants, with no change in accuracy.
Approved for use by the Australian Government.
Four steps to your result
Negative test results do not exclude infection with SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19); and positive test results or symptomatic persons require immediate confirmatory testing with a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test;
1. Take a sample
Wash your hands before performing the test.
Take the swab out of the packaging, being careful to only touch the swab by the handle.
Tilt your head back slightly. Insert the swab into one nostril. Slowly push the swab forward about 2 cm (parallel to the roof of your mouth) until you feel resistance. Do not apply any pressure.
Turn the swab 4 times (for a total of approx. 15 seconds) against the inside of the nose and then remove it from the nose.
Repeat with the same swab in the other nostril.
2. Dissolve the sample in the extraction buffer
Place the swab in a tube with extraction buffer.
Squeeze the tube at the bottom and turn the swab back and forth more than 10 times.
Continue to squeeze the sides of the tube while removing the swab to force all of the liquid out of the swab.
Press the dispenser cap firmly onto the tube.
3. Apply the dissolved sample to the test cassette
Place the test strip on a flat surface.
Hold the tube vertically over the
round marked area (not the rectangular result window).
Drop exactly 4 drops on the field.
To do this, gently squeeze the tube if necessary.
4. Check the result
Set a timer and read the test result after 15-30 minutes.
If the test result is read after more than 30 minutes, the result may be incorrect.

How to handle the tests
Remove the swab from the packaging. Ensure that you only touch the handle of the swab and not the soft pad at the tip. Slightly tilt your head backwards and insert the swab with the soft pad at the front into your left nostril. Slowly slide the swab approx. 2 cm forward (parallel to the roof of your mouth - not upwards) until you encounter resistance. You should not apply any pressure. Then rotate the swab 4 times (for a total of approx. 15 seconds) against the lining of the nasal wall before removing it from the nostril. Repeat these steps in your right nostril using the same swab.
The test should be used at room temperature (15 - 30 °C).
