The Highest Standards for UK Testing

Nick Spalding - WorkTest UK

We provide for purchase, ACON Biotech Flowflex SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test and Healgen Coronavirus Ag Rapid Test (swab) lateral flow antigen rapid tests, both of which are validated by Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), and Public Health England (PHE).

Both brands meet the UK Government’s performance standards. Since its establishment in August 2020, the joint PHE Porton Down and University of Oxford SARS-CoV-2 lateral flow antigen test validation cell has evaluated over 140 lateral flow devices that have been referred by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC).

Approximately 30% of the tests that were referred for validation met the standards for phase 2 validation, which are set out in the protocol. PHE Porton Down subsequently performed phase 3 testing to assess whether the lateral flow devices that passed phase 2 displayed performance characteristics desirable for mass population, community-based testing. The desirable performance characteristics are:

  • Very high specificity
  • Very high sensitivity against viral loads associated with infectiousness.

The lateral flow devices that display the desirable performance characteristics are listed within the link below…
