The UK Government Public Health England, Porton Down Laboratory, which reviews all lateral flow tests for the DHSC/UK Government, has validated the Hughes test to have exemplary accuracy at multiple viral loads, including for asymptomatic patients, and across the new different variants.
The swab only has to go 1-2cm into the nostril, all other nasopharyngeal tests have to be performed by a doctor and need to go 9-10 cm deep into the nasal cavity.
The Hughes test is a true nostril swab test and has only ever been designed as such, other tests will try to modify their test to include the nostril swab, but have do not have the clinical evidence to support that adjustment.
The easy to use format of the test makes it extremely easy to test yourself and your family from the comfort of your own home.
CE Mark for Home Use – Fully Approved.
The Hughes lateral flow test has a unique patented sensitivity enhancement system in our test cassette. Whilst all other cassettes use the colloidal gold method, which is significantly less sensitive for detecting the CoV-SARS-2 antigen. This is in part what allows our test to be so accurate across any specimens and sample collection method.
The components, including our comfortable swab, our lysis vials, and the box with which the single tests come in, are extremely well made and are designed to be as easy as possible to use. Every aspect of the test is that of a blue-chip high-quality product.
