    Is there an At-Home Covid-19 Test for Sale?

    Yes. The covid-19 testing kit is now available to purchase through UK Meds. Working in partnership with the London Medical Laboratory, UK Meds can now provide testing kits for COVID-19 with a full results certificate with your test results provided for official evidence of the test.

    The kit contains a pre-stamped envelope and a swab test. If ordered before 1 pm, UK Meds will process your test kit order for next day dispatch. Once you have completed the swab test, you need to send your test sample back using tracked 24-hour Royal Mail delivery to the laboratory. Once received the lab will process your result within 48 hours and email you your test certificate.

    How does the COVID-19 test kit work?

    Firstly, order your testing kit through www.ukmeds.co.uk. If you order before 1 pm you will receive your testing the kit via Royal Mail the next day. When you receive the kit, you will find enclosed full instructions, a swab to take a sample and a pre-stamped envelope allowing you to mail the swab back to our partner London Medical Laboratories for testing. Ensure that you read the instructions carefully before doing the swab in order to ensure that you get the best possible sample. Once you have sent the sample back using the pre-paid envelope, the laboratory will conduct a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, which detects the presence of the coronavirus or Covid-19 virus in your nose or throat. The PCR test works by making millions of copies of a section of the DNA collected in your swab sample. This is then analysed for the presence of the COVID-19 virus. It will show if you have the virus, even when you are not displaying symptoms, so long as the test is done correctly, and a sufficient sample collected via the swab test.

    What is a PCR test?

    A PCR test is a polymerase chain reaction test, which detects the presence of the coronavirus or COVID-19 virus in your nose or throat. The PCR test works by making millions of copies of a section of the DNA collected in your swab sample. This is then analysed for the presence of the COVID-19 virus. It will show if you have the virus, even when you are not displaying symptoms, so long as the test is done correctly, and a sufficient DNA sample collected via the swab test. It stands for "polymerase chain reaction", a method of culturing billions of your DNA sample in order to amplify the sample large enough to study it in detail. This can be done quickly, as the results of your PCR testing are typically available by the next evening, as stated on their website listed above.

    Does the test detect the COVID-19 virus?

    The test looks for the presence of the RNA of the covid-19 virus. The swab is designed to be used to collect a sample of the tester’s DNA in their throat and nose. If the virus is present the test will detect its presence. It is a 100% test if done correctly and can detect whether someone who has symptoms of Covid-19 actually is infected or not. It can also detect the presence of the virus up to 14 days prior to the development of symptoms. It can also detect the presence of the virus in people not displaying symptoms.

    How to use the COVID-19 Testing Kit?

    Firstly, order your testing kit through www.ukmeds.co.uk. If you order before 1 pm you will receive your testing the kit via Royal Mail the next day. When you receive the kit, you will find enclosed full instructions, a swab to take a sample and a pre-stamped envelope allowing you to mail the swab back to our partner London Medical Laboratories for testing.

    Ensure that you read the instructions carefully before doing the swab in order to ensure that you get the best possible sample. You will be required to take a swab sampling from the back of your throat and nose. It is a straightforward process, but care must be taken to ensure clean and sanitary conditions during the swabbing process. Ensure that you read the instructions through before beginning to ensure you complete the test thoroughly.

    You will be required to swab your throat and tonsils first with one end of the swab testing stick. Ensure that you do not touch the soft tip of the swab to avoid cross-contamination. Next, take the other end of the swab and insert it into one of your nostrils, approximately 2cm deep and twirl it for 3 to 5 seconds.

    Taking care to do this properly will help ensure the most accurate test results. Make certain that you read instructions properly. It may help if you perform the test in front of a mirror. Once complete insert the swab back into its protective tube taking care to avoid cross-contamination. After you have completed the instructions, next send the test kit to the laboratory using the prepaid envelope you see within the kit. The test results will be emailed back to you quickly, typically within 48 hours of the laboratory receiving your sample.

    What to do about the results of your coronavirus test?

    If your result is positive, this confirms that you are infected with Covid-19. It means that the lab found evidence of COVID-19 DNA/RNA on the swab you sent to the lab. If you do receive a positive result you will receive guidance from the laboratory stating the latest NHS guidelines and advice from Public Health England. You can read the latest NHS advice by visiting this web page: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/. This is especially true if you feel ill or unwell. If you have a positive result, but you do not feel sick, you may be asymptomatic. It is important to follow government advice and self-isolate, as others still may catch the virus from you. Advice on what to do if you are sick with COVID-19 continually changes, so make certain you refer to https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-and-treatment/ for the latest instructions if you test positive for COVID-19 If you have a negative result, this confirms that the swab you sent to the lab does not contain COVID-19 RNA/DNA. While this is good news, you will still want to take precautions if you are feeling sick.
