Alpha PH Ltd has just launched the first accurate, rapid swab test in conjunction with its partners in Italy – Alpha Pharma. Now available in the UK and Ireland, VivaDiag SARS-CoV-2Ag rapid test is an accurate swab test that gives test results within 15 minutes, without the need for laboratory analysis. 

Recommended to be carried out by a healthcare professional, Alpha PH Ltd is now distributing two specific Covid-19 tests. In addition to the VivaDiag SARS-CoV-2Ag rapid test, Alpha PH Ltd is distributing the Iris VivaDiag COVID-19 IgM IgG rapid test which delivers a qualitative determination of lgM and lgG COVID-19 antibodies, indicating that a person has coronavirus, within 15 minutes. 

The greatest risk of the spread of coronavirus is by asymptomatic patients who are unaware that they have the virus, therefore intensive and regular testing will facilitate the identification of these cases, helping to curb the spread of coronavirus across the globe.
