Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Tests Now Available

Updated: Jan 15, 2021

Keeping your essential workforce safe during 2021 is a challenge that most employers face with COVID-19. Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Tests allow regular testing of employees and visitors to workplaces.

Rapid Antigen tests return results in 15-30 minutes, the time it takes to have a cup of tea. The quick results reduce the risk of COVID outbreaks among large numbers of staff members. Conveniently delivered to site, offices or other places of work for quick, convenient testing.

SD Biosensor COVID-19 Ag, a World Health Organisation and UK Government approved test has recently become available via Snaffle Building Supplies.

Check the Governmental accreditation here. The World Health Organisation's (WHO) EUL lists the acceptance of the SD Biosensor test as credible. The full report can be found on the WHO website.

According to the WHO:-

These tests provide results in 15–30 minutes, rather than hours or days, and will enable expansion of testing, particularly in countries that do not have extensive laboratory facilities or trained health workers to implement molecular (polymerase-chain reaction or PCR) tests.
