TERMS & CONDITIONS

You agree that by using the Rapid Covid-19 testing services you agree to and accept these Conditions of Use. These Conditions of Use will prevail over any other terms and conditions provided to you in relation to the test.  

The testing service is available at the Covid-19 rapid testing facility is the STANDARD Q COVID-19 Ag Test.

Neither the quantitative value nor the rate of SARS-CoV-2 antigen concentration can be determined by this qualitative test. 

The test should be used for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 antigen in human nasopharyngeal swab specimens

For more accuracy of immune status, additional follow-up testing using other laboratory methods is recommended.

For further information regarding the test please see the following link http://sdbiosensor.com/xe/product/7672  

 

THE TESTS & SAMPLNG METHOD

Collecting the sample will take approximately 3 minutes and will require one of our trained staff taking a sample from your nose. The purpose of the test is to pick up the presence of the actual virus in the nose.  

For tests taken in advance of flight departures we aim to provide results within 45 minutes.

These results timescales are not guaranteed and we do not accept any liability for any costs you may incur as a result of a delayed test result.

A positive result indicates that the test has detected the presence of Covid-19 virus. A negative result means that the test has not detected evidence of the Covid-19 virus. Testing is a biological process involving significant complexity and variability, and consequently no testing regime for Covid-19 is 100% accurate in all cases. A negative result does not guarantee that the test subject is free of the Covid-19 virus, nor does a positive result guarantee that the test subject has active, infectious Covid-19. All testing is conducted on this basis.

Test results and any comments given by us on the results are for information only. They are not a clinical diagnosis. They are not a replacement for a full and proper medical investigation and/or a doctor’s advice. Our comments are based solely on the results in relation to what are considered normal ranges in the general population. If you have any concerns at all regarding any aspect of your health or your test results you should discuss them directly with your GP or a doctor.

Please note you are solely responsible for determining that the test you are taking is suitable for your particular requirements, including whether any particular test satisfies the standards you are seeking to meet (whether for entry into any particular international destination etc).

We reserve the right to withdraw our services if 1) you do not conduct yourself in a reasonable manner, 2) you do not abide by the rules and policies or 3) if you fail to comply with the reasonable instructions of our test centre staff.

We would advise that if you are a departing passenger you undertake your test 48 hours before your flight.
