We’ve heard multiple cases of false positives or negatives from Covid-19 self-test kits and this makes us wonder if Covid-19 self-test kits are accurate in the very first place.
Not only that these inaccurate test kits are a waste of money, but it also poses a certain danger when a Covid-19 positive person gets a negative self-test result.
Meanwhile, the best test kit that is available in the market right now is the ProDetect® COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test which is manufactured in Malaysia by Medical Innovation Ventures Sdn Bhd (Mediven®).
According to Bernama, this test kit has obtained a 100% accuracy score by the External Quality Assessment Programme (EQAP) conducted by the European Society for external quality assessment (EsFEQA).
This test kit is said to be able to detect all variants of concern including delta and Omicron within 20 minutes.
Operations Director of Mediven, Dr Lim Li Sze said: “The COVID-19 rapid test serves as a valuable initial screening tool. As confirmed in the EQAP, our ProDetect® test kit retains its quality and consistency in providing a high level of accuracy.”
“As we see the cases rising by the day, it is crucial for early detection, isolation, and treatment of those infected and to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 infection.”
Mediven® has two ranges of test kits for the detection of COVID-19, either saliva or nasal. So you’ll need to check the product that you are buying.
The ProDetect® COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test can be found on the Medilabz website at only RM8.90 each!
