What is an Antigen Test for Travel?

If you have booked a ticket or considered travelling in 2022, you might have noticed that many countries now require travellers to present a “Fit to Fly” certificate at the airport before their flight. It is an official document stating that you are COVID-19-free and safe to travel abroad. In most cases, travellers must take the COVID-19 test within 72 of departure, depending on the airline or destination.

The Fit-to-Fly certificate has become an essential component of international travel. West Chemist in Northampton offers a range of Fit-to-Fly testing options including both PCR and Antigen tests for travel.

What is the Antigen Test?

The Antigen Test (also known as the Rapid Antigen test) is one of the diagnostic methods used to detect the presence of the virus’s antigens to determine if you have COVID-19. The Covid Antigen Test is one of the most reliable and quick COVID-19 tests that can give you accurate results fast.

West Chemist is pleased to offer comprehensive Covid Testing to suit your needs including PCR Tests, Antigen Tests for travel, and Fit to Fly PCR Tests for travel certification.

How Do Rapid Antigen Tests Work?

A Rapid Antigen Test is carried out through a nose or throat swab to collect fluid. The sample goes through a rapid analysis to check for specific proteins and antigens found in the virus to know if you have an active COVID-19 infection.
