About our tests
Qured uses lateral flow devices which have been independently verified by Public Health England and the NHS to be highly accurate at detecting the presence of coronavirus.
Lateral flow testing is an established rapid diagnostic method to check for the presence of ‘antigens’ when a person has Covid-19. Lateral flow is useful for finding out if a person is currently infectious, and able to transmit the virus to others.
A lateral flow test kit is a small cassette which consists of a well for dispensing the sample and a window for reading results. The enclosed test strip will develop visible lines depending on the presence or absence of Covid-19.
A sample is taken from the back of the throat, around the tonsils and from the nose, using a swab. This is known as a nasopharyngeal swab.
The swab is then immersed into a chemical solution, which is dripped into the well of the lateral flow device. This solution produces a reaction with the test strip inside the device, creating a result. You can read the results accurately from the test device from 20 minutes after mixing the sample with the lateral flow test.
The manufacturers of the tests used by Qured states that these tests have a sensitivity, or true positive rate, of at least 96.4% and a specificity, or true negative rate, of at least 99.5%, when compared to gold standard PCR tests. The tests have also passed evaluation conducted by Public Health England, and PHE has concluded that specificity of >99.7% is maintained when detecting infectious patients carrying higher viral loads.
According to government guidance, lateral flow testing is useful for finding out if a person is infectious now and able to transmit the virus to others. The level of sensitivity is high enough to detect the vast majority of these cases. Lateral flow testing is less likely to return a positive result outside the infectious window.
Our tests are CE marked and registered with the MHRA.
We’ve made taking an at-home lateral flow test safe, easy and reliable. You can order your test online and choose from a variety of delivery options. Once your kit has arrived, you’ll need to schedule a remote video call with one of our Health Advisors. On the day of your test, you’ll be given a link to join a virtual waiting room. The Health Advisor will start your call around your scheduled time, so please have your test kit ready. During the call, they will walk you through taking a valid swab sample and processing your result. To ensure an accurate sample and result, you should follow their instructions exactly 20 minutes after adding the sample to the lateral flow device, you need to take a clear picture of your result next to photo ID and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. You’ll receive your verified result within an hour.
No, you must be supervised by our Health Advisor in order to take an accurate sample and receive an accurate result. Qured reserves the right to refuse to validate your results if you have not followed these guidelines.
Unfortunately, you will not be able to use this service, as this product is designed to be led by a professional Health Advisor over a remote video call.
