What is a Rapid Antigen Test?

Rapid antigen tests (lateral flow testing) are a rapid diagnostic method to check for the presence of viral antigens when a person has Covid-19. Rapid antigen tests are useful for finding out if a person is currently infectious, and able to transmit the virus to others. It does this by detecting a protein from the nucleocapsid (a membrane found inside the virus). Rapid antigen tests will only report a positive result if the test detects the target membrane protein of the virus. Therefore, Rapid antigen testing is better suited to identifying those who are currently infectious and most likely to spread the virus further. This can help to reduce the risk to others of exposure to Covid-19.How is a Rapid Antigen Test administered?​

How is a Rapid Antigen Test administered?

The Regenerate Clinic uses a Biozek Antigen Rapid Test Cassette which requires a nose and throat swab performed in clinic by a medical professional. This shows whether you are currently infected with the virus. We offer Rapid Antigen tests with a Fit to Fly at all our in-clinic locations.

Do we offer Return to UK Rapid Antigen tests?

We do offer Return to UK Rapid Antigen tests to purchase before you leave the UK and delivered to your UK address. This type of test is required up to 72 hours before you leave your destination country to come back to the UK. It includes a remote consultation with a nurse and result certificate within minutes. It’s important you make sure you are booking the correct type of test before your travel plans.

However, if you are planning to use our Rapid Antigen test for Fit to Fly outbound travel, please check the test requirements of your destination country as regulations can change quickly

What is the difference between a PCR and Rapid Antigen Tests?​

A private Covid-19 PCR test provides the certificate of testing that airlines and most overseas countries require to travel and enter those countries. It is considered the gold standard of Covid-19 testing as it can reliably detect if you are currently infected with the virus. An antigen test, or a lateral flow test, gives a good indication of coronavirus when the infection is at its peak, but is not quite as reliable as the PCR test.

The latest travel testing requirements means that some countries are now accepting Covid-19 rapid Antigen (Lateral Flow) tests for entry, please check your specific requirements before booking a test with us.
