What is the difference between self-test and professional use?
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.
