What is an at-home antigen test? Antigen tests are made to detect various things you may be allergic to (known as antigens), to see if you have an immune response. Most people today are interested in testing for Covid-19 antigens. There is a specific rapid antigen test home kit for testing against the Covid-19 virus.

Covid-19 tests go by many names, but these names refer to the same product. Our Covid-19 tests provide results in as little as 15 minutes, so they are often called "rapid tests". They test for Covid-19 antigens, so they are called "antigen tests". The type of test is lateral flow, so they are also called lateral flow tests (or LFT). Our tests are rapid antigen test for travel.

Both the cheap and more-expensive versions of the test available on this page are the exact same type of lateral flow test, the only difference being the more-expensive version comes with the ability to email a photo of your test results to a lab in order to receive a "fit to fly" certificate.

Are Covid-19 antigen test results private?

You can order a private lateral flow test from UK Meds. The cost is less than £5. You take the test in the privacy of your own home and the results of your test will remain entirely private if you do not share it. While you may need to show your test result with others if you wish to use it for travel or work purposes, the result will remain private until you do so.

How fast are Covid-19 test results?

The lateral flow test is called a rapid test kit because you receive the results of the test within 15 minutes of taking it. You do not have to wait for a lab or doctor to interpret the results of your test. The results will be visible to you at home, in much the same way as a pregnancy test also shows results quickly and privately.
