Why you might need to take a Coronavirus Saliva Test?
- Taking this coronavirus home test will ensure you take proper precautions for self isolation and hygiene to prevent the virus from spreading.
- This reliable coronavirus test gives you clarity on whether or not you need to self isolate, if you have any of coronavirus-related symptoms. See the government guidelines for further details.
- The Coronavirus Saliva Test Kit can be appropriately used for many situations: someone you’ve been in contact with has coronavirus, before you travel, going back to work, or ensuring its safe to see family and friends.
- If you are showing any symptoms. The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) to look out for are: a high temperature, a continuous cough, a loss of smell or taste.
The Coronavirus Saliva Testing Kit is one of the world’s first saliva tests for the identification of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19.
This test uses the RT-PCR method and protocol defined by the US Centre for Disease Control (CDC)1 and has been extensively validated by a UK-based laboratory for the detection of coronavirus.
The NHS are currently investing in coronavirus saliva tests that are more accurate than the current nasal (nasopharyngeal) swabs. With Hydro-X you are guaranteed a fast delivery for a coronavirus home test, with quick results so you can act promptly and accordingly.
The 3 main requirements we expect these tests to fulfil are:
- Individual use – those who are concerned they might have contracted COVID-19 and wish to carry out a Coronavirus Test on themselves, but perhaps are not currently showing symptoms, therefore can’t take a test via the Government programme
- Business batch-testing – organisations who wish to carry out periodic sampling of their workforce to proactively respond to coronavirus case incidences
- Regularised testing of key personnel / frequent flyers – weekly testing using our Coronavirus Saliva Test Kit provides a method that guarantees both personal and group safety
How long does it take to get Coronavirus Test Results?
Once the saliva sample is collected in the tube and then sent back to the lab for testing, you will receive a text (SMS) message in less than 36 hours with your coronavirus test results.
The Coronavirus Saliva Test Kit has a shelf life of 2 years, so feel free to buy and use later. Preparation is the at most importance in these times.

How The Test Works
Frequently Asked Questions
- Positive - testing positive for the virus means that the sample provided contains SARS-CoV-2 RNA. This result could be returned even in the absence of symptoms.
- Negative - this result means that the sample provided does not contain detectable levels of SARS-CoV-2 RNA. However, you could have been previously infected by the virus and you could still be infected at a future date.
- Inconclusive - this result means that the test results did not meet the requirements to be reported as a positive detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA in the sample, and should be treated clinically as Not Detected. However, this also means that there was partial detection of a signal from SARS-CoV-2 that warrants notification under duty of care for further investigation. Re-testing in these cases is recommended.
- Failed - this result means it was not possible to accurately process your test in the laboratory. This is normally due to an incorrect saliva sample being provided (i.e. not providing enough spit, not mixing with the stabilizing fluid or eating/drinking before the test). We recommended taking another test as soon as possible.
