Our test kits and laboratory

We only work with accredited and / or lab and test kits of the highest quality approved by the National Board of Health. If your PCR test is taken far back in one nostril (nasopharynx test), it is sent to Life Genomics, which is an accredited laboratory in Gothenburg. If your PCR test is taken in the nose, throat and throat, the test is sent to ABC lab, which is a large lab that analyzes about 13-14000 samples a day for several regions. 

Validate "Sample ID"

Here you can write in the test tube ID you received and either get it validated as done in an accredited laboratory (via Life Genomics' website) or have the lab report sent (if you have done a test that has been sent to ABC lab). Please look at your "Sample ID" and then choose to validate your test according to your sample ID.

Antigen test

Flowflex ™ SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test

Identifies ongoing infection within 15 minutes.

One of the market's most reliable and user-friendly antigen test.
The sample can be taken nasally (2,5 cm up in the nose) or nasopharyngeally. (Specify when ordering which type of sampling stick is desired).
The test responds to an ongoing infection within 15 minutes
User-friendly with pre-filled "buffers / tubes", which makes the whole procedure easier and saves time in cases where a large number of people are to be tested at the same time. Note these tubes are not the ones shown in the instruction video below.
Also available as single packaged kits (not standard)

Performance:
No cross-reactivity with other viruses.

Sensitivity: 97.1% (83.8% -99.9%) *
Specificity: 99.6% (97.7% -99.9%) *
Accuracy: 99.3% (97.5% -99.9%) *
* 95% Confidence Intervals

PCR test
Coronavirus SARS ‑ CoV ‑ 2 ‑ RNA
Method name:

Real-Time Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR)

  • Extraction based RT-PCR with ThermoFisher TaqPath ™ COVID-19 CE IVD RT-PCR kit
  • Real-Time Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR)
Used to:

Detect SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid (RNA)

Interpretation:

Positive / Negative / Invalid

A positive test result indicates that the patient is infected with SARS-CoV-2. Laboratory test results should always be considered in the context of clinical observations and epidemiologic data in making a final diagnosis.

A negative test result suggests that the patient is not infected with SARS-CoV-2 at the time of test. This may be influenced by the stage of the infection and the quality of the sample that was collected.

An invalid test result suggests that the patient may have a very low amount of viral nucleic acid present in the sample that does not reach the threshold to be considered positive by the assay. Repeat testing on a new sample may be considered, if clinically indicated.
