The way we protect ourselves, our communities and workplaces will determine how we recover and thrive in the post-COVID era.
While vaccination rates are increasing throughout Australia, the presence of COVID-19 will be felt for many years to come. Employers, businesses, schools and government agencies alike are in need of a quick and easy way to test for COVID-19. In response, rapid antigen testing, and its correct implementation, is in high demand throughout numerous industries. Procurement Australia has partnered with Biocelect to bring our members an accelerated COVID-19 testing solution – the STANDARD Q COVID-19 Antigen Test – to help us all take more control over the spread of the virus.
The STANDARD Q COVID-19 Antigen Test must only be used by relevant practitioners, or persons under their supervision, who are trained in the correct use of the goods and the interpretation of the tests. The test is not supplied for the purpose of self-testing.
How rapid antigen testing works
Rapid antigen testing is a quick and effective screening tool to help detect COVID-19.
Through use of a nasopharyngeal swab and a chemical solution, rapid antigen testing makes it easier for employees, students, residents or visitors to get an initial screening test for COVID-19 in a drastically reduced time frame.
Benefits of the STANDARD Q COVID-19 Antigen Test
We are committed to providing our members with the best possible rapid testing solution on the market. We also want to support our members to implement a testing process that is compliant with Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) conditions. Biocelect’s STANDARD Q COVID-19 Antigen Test has a number of benefits to suit member virus detection needs and concerns:
Results delivered at point-of-care
The rapid antigen test does not require laboratory testing increasing the potential for wide scale testing. Positive test results or symptomatic persons require immediate confirmatory testing via a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test. **
Convenient and easy-to-use
The nasal swab test can be easily administered in five easy steps.
Results displayed within 15-30 minutes.
TGA (Aust.) & WHO (Int.) listed device

**Rapid antigen testing and negative test results do not stop COVID-19 infection, so face masks, social distancing and good hygiene practices must be maintained.
With Standard Q Rapid Antigen Test, get your results in 15-30 mins in 5 easy steps.
