Hughes Healthcare Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Lateral Flow Test Kits (25 Pack)
Buy online today, from only £4.99+VAT per test!
Hughes Healthcare’s COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) Lateral Flow Test Kits, (using a swab administration), are a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of specific antigens to SARS-CoV-2 present along the mucosa wall on the inside of the nostril.
These rapid COVID test kits seemed to offer the best combination of a very affordable price, CE marked quality assurance, volume stock availability, and accurate results.
They offer rapid and accurate results within 15-30 minutes, giving you the reassurance of knowing whether you have the Coronavirus or not.
They contain pre-filled tubes of buffer fluid for maximum convenience and are well-priced. Another key feature of the Hughes Healthcare test kits is that they require a nasal swab only, so are less invasive than the free government LFD tests and other brands of test kits for sale including Roche.
Other brands of LDF test kits often require a full Nasopharyngeal (Nose AND Throat) swab, which is a much less comfortable experience, and is no more accurate, see our Nasopharyngeal vs Nasal test kit comparison for further details.

About Hughes Healthcare
The Hughes Group originally started in 2001 as a private family office. Healthcare operations began in 2015 in neurology and in 2018 expanded into drug development and medical devices. These included robotic medical devices for drug infusion in neuro oncology, modifying existing large molecule drugs into water soluble versions for infusion via catheters into the brainstem and diagnostic assays for viral antibodies and antigens.
We have engineered a mass human dual testing protocol to control and eradicate Covid-19. We supply the point of care test kits (both rapid antigen lateral flow and RT LAMP), qualified training for staff and crew (which isn’t complex but is helpful) and any other aspects of consultancy. Our protocol has received support, agreement and purchasing agreements from governments in the EU and elsewhere.

Instructions for Use of Rapid Lateral Flow Antigen COVID-19 Tests
A swab sample (either nasopharyngeal, oropharyngeal, throat or saliva) is collected from the person being tested.
The swab is then inserted into a bottle that contains 2 ml of lysis solution. The swab containing cell samples should be stirred well and pressed to the bottom of the bottle.
The swab should be stirred well and the test cassette removed from the foil packaging.
3-4 drops of sample are dripped onto the test card. The result will be shown within 15 minutes.
