How to get started for an easy at home testing experience:

“Before you start wash your hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based gel.”

Firstly, before you start your test wash your hands with soap and water or by using an alcohol-based gel. Then blow your nose into a tissue to get rid of any nasal discharge. 

The next step is to lay all the items of your test kit out on a flat surface. Remove the test device from the foil pouch and ensure that your test kit has not been damaged. Once you have your test kit ready you will either need to log on to the Klarity app to video record yourself or attend an appointment with one of our health professionals if this test is for international purposes and you require a test result and certificate. 

How to collect your test sample:

Step 1: Remove the sterile swab from its sheath by pealing it back and carefully removing it.

Step 2: Tilt your head back slightly

Step 3: Insert the swab stick into one of your nostrils until you feel some slight resistance rotate the swab 4 to 6 times for at least 15 seconds to collect your sample. Remove from your nostril and repeat this same action in the other nostril.

Step 4: Open the sample tube which contains a solution by twisting the top and insert the swab stick into the tube. Rotate the swab stick at least 5 times (15 seconds) and then slightly lift the swab stick out of the solution. Before your remove the swab stick from the tube squeeze the tube around the swab cotton bud to remove as much of the sample from the swab stick. Remove the swab stick fully and close the lid. 

How to collect your test sample:

Step 1: Place 3 drops of the solution into the specimen well on the test device. 

Step 2: Wait 15 minutes before you read your result. 

A Positive Test result will display two lines on the test device. 

A Negative Test result will display one line on the control area (c).

A Invalid Test result will display no lines on the test device.
