A self-test may be carried out by anyone aged 18+, with detailed instructions included in the packaging. We recommend anyone under 18 be supervised by an adult when self-testing.

A professional-use test can be performed by anyone with medical training. This can be at home if someone with training is available, or you can bring your test to a clinic or pharmacy for assistance.

Are lateral flow tests similar to a COVID test?

Yes, these tests are indeed lateral flow tests similar to those you may have used for COVID or pregnancy in the past. They are simple-to-use diagnostic devices to confirm the presence or absence of a target analyte, such as antibodies to an illness.

How can I do the test?

Our tests contain detailed instructions in the packaging. You can also view an instructional how-to video on the Newfoundland app.

How long does it take to get the result?

Results can be obtained within 15 minutes.

Should I use the tests as clinical diagnosis?

We suggest our tests should be used as preliminary screening; please see a medical professional for a confirmed diagnosis. All results should be interpreted together with other clinical information available to the physician.

What should I do if I receive a positive test result?

See a medical professional to receive treatment. For further advice on next steps, please download our app and read our next steps guidance.

What should I do if I receive a negative test result?

The accuracy of the test depends on the quality of the swab sample. False negatives may result from improper sample collection or storage.

What should I do if I receive an unclear test result?

Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reasons for a control line failure. Review the procedure and repeat the process with a new test.
