What is a Lateral Flow Test?

How to Use Lateral Flow Tests
Lateral tests take a sample from the nose or mouth using a swab, which is then mixed with a buffer solution, with drops being added to a lateral flow device. Then the virus fragments pass along the strip within the lateral flow device where they can bind to labelled antibodies, which then shows up as a test line if the virus is detected, unlabelled antibodies provide a control line to show the test has worked. Healgen’s test screens for the SARS-CoV-2 antibodies, during first 1-3 weeks of infection.
What are fit to fly tests?
A fit to fly certificate, also called a fit to fly letter, is a certificate or letter from a doctor stating that you are fit to fly. Some airlines may require you to get a fit to fly certificate. We have an at-home antigen test that allows you to be tested for Covid-19 in the convenience of your home. After getting a negative result, you can take a digital photo of your test and send it to an email provided. A doctor will issue a certificate letter stating you are fit to fly, within 60 minutes of your email.
A fit to fly home test is the same lateral flow test you can obtain from this page, that is reviewed by a doctor with an issued certificate. These tests cost more than the lateral flow test available on this page (less than £20). You can order a lateral flow test with fit to fly certificate from this page.
If you need a Covid-19 test for flight, verify from your airline whether you need a fit to fly test kit for travel, or if a simple lateral flow test (available on this page for £4.78) is sufficient.
Currently, you only need to take a Covid-19 test for flying if you are not fully vaccinated.
Are Covid-19 Tests Private?
Whether a lateral flow Covid-19 test will remain private depends on your use. If you simply wish to know whether you have Covid, you can dispose of the kit immediately after and the results will remain completely private. On the other hand, if you want to use the test results for your work or travel purposes, the people you share your results with will know if you test positive for Covid-19. Otherwise, the test remains completely private.
