MEDsan UK’s rapid antigen swab tests now available for UK businesses

We’re pleased to announce the UK availability of our rapid antigen swab testing kits. These tests are for professional use only and must be administered by a trained healthcare professional.

Rapid testing, both antibody and antigen, is increasingly being used by governments and businesses across the world as the practical means to mass test populations of people to fight another wave of coronavirus. In the past week, the UK government have announced their ‘Operation Moonshot’ plan – a proposal for mass roll-out of rapid coronavirus tests, which are being trialled within the next few weeks. On October 19th, Matt Hancock confirmed this plan, with priority roll-out to take place in the Tier 3 areas of the UK.

Officially Approved by the German Government

MEDsan’s German-manufactured rapid antigen test has been officially approved by the German government. It has a clinical sensitivity of 92.5%, a specificity of 99.8% and generates results within just 15 minutes.

MEDsan’s rapid antigen test was recently featured on German TV new channel RTL:Nord in an investigative piece about how rapid antigen testing is helping Germany fight the pandemic.

Our rapid antigen tests are straightforward for a trained medical professional to administer and instructions for use are included. Our consultant physician is also on hand to advise our customers on the deployment of rapid antigen testing as a practical method to protect their employees.
