Frequently Asked Questions

Is this test approved by the UK Government for Days 2 & 8 Mandatory testing?

Yes, our partner Lab (RIGHTANGLED)  is an approved provider for Day 2 & 8 PCR testing by the UK government.

How can I get my booking reference number to add on my passenger locator form?

For Day 2 and Day 8 testing, when you buy kits from us, you need to register the day 2 kit barcode with our Partner Lab here: https://auth.rightangled.co/PatientRegistration/RegisterKit

You need to choose the option for day 2 and 8, then enter your details, create an account and you will receive passenger code which in our case is in the format RIGHT1234567, which you need to put in the passenger locator form and need to have when booking return flights to the UK.

Sometimes customers are asked to provide a booking confirmation email, in which case you can send an email to accounts@rightangled.co and include 2 barcodes, passenger name and email, so that the RIGHTANGLED team (our Partner Lab) can send the confirmation email directly to you.

How do I take the test once I’ve received my kit?

Three simple steps to get your COVID-19 result:

1. Order your kit

If you need a result by a particular date, remember to order your test as early as possible. Kits can be collected by a friend or relative or delivered if in the Brighton area after paying over the phone securely. 

2. Send your swab sample

Once you receive your kit, register the unique barcode for each test Kit on our Partner Lab (RIGHTANGLED) website at this link: https://auth.rightangled.co/PatientRegistration/RegisterKit. Then, take the sample by following the instructions included. We also have a video on this page to help you. Then send back your package with the pre-paid return postage.

3. Download your reports

Once your sample arrives at the lab, it will be processed within 24 hours. You will get an email notification once your report is ready.

Does the test check for past COVID-19 infection?

This test can only detect current Covid-19 infection. But you can use our Covid-19 antibody test to find out about a previous infection and to see if you have developed some natural immunity to Covid-19. Unlike the Covid-19 PCR swab, the antibody test is a blood test.
