Roche Diagnostics SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test


Each kit contains 25 individually packaged, ready-to-use tests.

The SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test is a lateral flow immunoassay intended for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 nucleoprotein antigen in nasopharyngeal (NP) swabs from individuals who are suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider within the first 5 days of the onset of symptoms.

The SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test is intended for use by trained laboratory personnel and healthcare professionals for laboratory use or point of care testing. Negative results do not preclude SARS-CoV-2 infection and should not be
used as the sole basis for patient management decisions. Negative results must be combined with clinical observations, patient history, and epidemiological information.

This assay is not intended to be used for diagnostics. This assay is not intended for home testing (or self-testing).

We use eco-friendly vials for medications.

  • 30% less plastic
  • 52% less CO2 produced in manufacturing
  • easily recyclable
  • made locally in Canada
  • made from non-toxic polypropylene (PP)*

*Polypropylene (PP) is considered a safe plastic for the environment and for human health. It’s odorless, non-toxic and chemically inert.

We deliver using 100% compostable mailers.

Our compostable mailers are made from a combination of PBAT, a bio based polymer which is compostable, and PLA which is made up of plant materials such as regular field corn and wheat straw. Our use of PLA makes up barely 0.05% of the annual global corn crop, making it an incredibly low-impact resource.

The bags are certified by the leading authorities worldwide; meeting American, European, International and Australian standards – including certifications for your domestic home compost. To gain these certifications, the product must break down within 90 days in commercial compost and 180 days in domestic compost conditions, including worm farm compost. After degradation, they must leave no harmful residues behind.

Roche Diagnostics SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test

I was sent expired tests along with a dodgy looking form letter suggesting that the shelf life was extended. Spent hours on the phone with Roche trying to ascertain whether these these tests (expired months ago) could still be used. Still waiting to here back from Roche with a definitive answer though one person I spoke with suggested that expired tests should not be used/are not reliable.
