Covid-19 Home Testing Kit


Out of stock

Dear Valued Customer,


You will clearly be aware of the pressing demand for Covid-19 home sample collection kits and the impact this global health crisis has had on supply chains.


Please also be aware that, as a result of a critical national demand, Randox have volunteered a significant element of our current Covid-19 testing capacity to the UK national testing programme. That programme is focusing on key workers and the maintenance of critical national infrastructure – including that of the NHS.


In the short to medium term Randox will continue to ramp up capacity and aim to support our private customer base, though initially the availability of kits for private use will be relatively limited.


Please rest assured that Randox are committed to testing at scale and know that this is the most effective way to both save lives and promote a timely return to a more normal society.


As additional capacity becomes available then we will aim to provide Covid-19 testing more broadly, and will advise accordingly. Until then we will not be in position to accept new orders.


We thank you for your understanding in these unparalleled times.


Randox has developed a revolutionary test for Coronavirus (COVID-19), the new strain of coronavirus. The only test in the world that can identify the lethal strain and differentiate between other non-lethal variants with the same symptoms. The new test utilises Randox Biochip Technology.
