My First Experience with COVID-19 Self-Test Kit


COVID-19 Self-Test Kit


This is the first time I use a COVID-19 Self-Test Kit. Don't panic, I'm not exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms. It's just for peace of mind and I want to do my part in stopping the virus from spreading further.

Furthermore, early detection is essential to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. This test kit allows self testing of COVID-19 antigen performed at home without the hassle of getting tested at a healthcare facility.


Instruction Guide


Easy, user-friendly, self-administered, instant result within 15 minutes. Just need to cough and spit. Then again, I have no phlegm or mucus from coughing, so I just spit into the apparatus to conduct the test. It's recommended to collect the first oral fluid in the morning.


I use the ALLTEST COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test - Oral Fluid Self Testing Kit. If I read correctly, this brand has obtained conditional approval from KKM


Oral fluid is mixed with the test kit's testing solution in this little plastic tube.


Then, I squeeze two drops of the solution into the hole labelled with "S" and wait for the results.

ALLTEST COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 antigens present in human oral fluid. When the control line (C) appears, it means the test unit is performing well. Info from this page.


Negative Result


Results can be read after 15 minutes as long as a colored line has appeared by the C region. I only see one red line by C, and no line by T, so it's a negative result for my test.
