How accurate are the Rapid Antigen Tests?
Our tests have a 97% Sensitivity and 99.8% Specificity meaning they are as accurate as any Rapid Antigen Test on the market.
Other testing agencies are charging far more than CS Healthcare. What is the catch?
Our Board is made up of HealthCare and Health & Safety Professionals.

We have listened to our clients and have sourced the least intrusive tests, priced ethically to give clients the option to test early and test often. Our Nasal Swab is a sample taken at the front of the nose and the Saliva test is a saliva sample produced into a tub ensuring the least intrusive testing products on the market.
How long do I have to wait for results?

Can our staff internally carry out the test?
Yes. Both of our tests are very easy to use. We also provide a training service where we can train staff internally on the process and equipment needed to test frequently and at your companies leisure.
What is the difference between PCR and Rapid Antigen Testing?
- Rapid Antigen Test: (frequently referred to as a rapid test). This test detects protein fragments specific to the Coronavirus. Turnaround time for results is approx 15 minutes.
- PCR testing actually detects RNA (or genetic material) that is specific to the virus and can detect the virus within days of infection, even those who have no symptoms. Turnaround time is longer, generally in the 2-3 day range but results can be in as little as 24 hours.
