Strep A Self-Test

Wondfo Strep A Self-Test is a rapid lateral flow test used for the qualitative detection of the group A streptococcal antigen from a throat swab specimen. In some regards this is a ‘Strep A Antigen Test’.

The test is ideal for screening for Strep A, a type of bacteria commonly found on the skin or in the throat, that generally causes mild infections such as sore throat or impetigo. On rare occasions the bacteria can cause more invasive infections known as iGAS infections.

During Strep A outbreaks and increased incidences of iGAS, being vigilant and screening for the bacteria helps identify cases and contain the spread.

Older people, young children and the immunocompromised are most vulnerable to developing the more serious and potentially life threatening iGAS.

Strep A can cause flu-like symptoms, a sore throat, nausea, and vomiting (see full list of symptoms below) which are very similar to other conditions. While Strep A is a problem it is advisable to test and rule-in or rule-out the infection if you have any of the symptoms.

Strep A can easily be treated with antibiotics. However, a course of antibiotics can’t start until Strep A infection has been confirmed. Generally, you are no longer contagious 24 hours after taking antibiotics. In the absence of antibiotic treatment individuals can remain contagious for 2-3 weeks after contracting the infection. This self-test is easy to use, and except for a tongue depressor all components needed to perform the test are supplied within the kit. Results are provided in a few minutes and  a throat swab.

Seek medical help immediately following a positive result or if you have any concerns about group A streptococcal infection. If you get a negative result, and   Strep A symptoms remain/worsen or, you are concerned, contact your doctor

The kits are manufactured under an internationally recognised quality management system, ISO 13485.
