JS Medical, part of the JS Group is now able to offer a range of high quality, reliable and accurate COVID-19 antigen and antibody tests for SARS-CoV-2. We have been supplying the NHS with novel medical devices for treating cancer, heart and kidney disease for many years. We operate the highest standards of good distribution practice.
Our rapid point-of-care lateral-flow viral antigen tests provide high-specificity and sensitivity results in 10-15 minutes and compare very favourably to the laboratory -based RT-PCR swab test. Our antigen tests use a throat swab sample, while our antibody tests require just a tiny finger-prick blood sample. All our test products can be stored at room temperature and do not require any special equipment to use them.
Our test specifications exceed World Health Organisation (WHO) and Public Health England (PHE) requirements across all parameters, are easy to use and the results are simple to interpret with built-in quality controls to ensure fidelity of results.
We have partnered with four leading companies from the USA, Europe and China to offer the best tests available today. All our antigen tests have been independently validated against the RT-PCR molecular test to ensure accuracy against false negatives. We have gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure that our suppliers have regulator-inspected design and production facilities that comply with all ISO/EN standards, operate audited quality management systems, and that all products have the CE-mark and conformity to the latest European Medical Device Directives including IVDD regulations. This ensures that we comply with the United Kingdom MHRA requirements to place medical devices on to the market for free sale. Our suppliers use the best methods of quality control, regulatory assurance and good manufacturing practice.
We are the only company in the UK that can offer point-of-care tests from independent, longstanding in-vitro diagnostic medical manufactures who have a long and established presence in this market. We do not use “pop-up” manufacturers with no experience in making viral test systems that have been proven to be inaccurate and unreliable.
We can guarantee a continuous supply of antigen and antibody test products as the world demand for high-quality devices soar by aligning with 4 manufacturers. This also gives us a highly competitive advantage in driving costs per test down. We offer on-line or in-person training for our very easy to use test kits. Our tests are already in use by governments around the world, including the United Kingdom.
