Saliva antigen rapid tests by Spring Healthcare aid in the rapid diagnosis of COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 infections. The SARS-Cov-2 Antigen Rapid Test Cassette (Saliva) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of specific antigens from SARSCoV-2 present in human saliva within the first 7 days of symptom onset. This test is for professional use only, as an aid to early diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infection.

Saliva antigen rapid tests by Spring Healthcare for COVID-19 can detect acute infection in 20 minutes, a fraction of the time of PCR tests. They are accurate and sensitive enough for use where they can help to identify people who are most likely to spread the virus further and help prevent transmission of the disease. Approved by UK Government and Department of Health and Social Care, Rapid turnaround lateral flow tests are appropriate to use as an adjunct to risk reduction.
