Can you self-test using a lateral flow test kit?
The official answer is no. The pack clearly states “For professional in vitro diagnostic use only”.
However, the global test kit manufacturer Acon also adds: “all testing should be under the supervision of a healthcare professional. How that supervision should be carried out is a grey area. We know, for example, in schools non-health professional staff receive online training and are then allowed to carry out the tests. We also know of groups that test multiple people within a single zoom meeting.”
Our COVID rapid test kit FAQs provide further important information on self-testing and any other questions you may have.
