How to take the test will vary, depending on the brand of RAT. If you are doing the test yourself, we recommend following the manufacturer’s instructions carefully. You can find these instructions inside with the testing kit. You can also read Ministry of Health advice on how to use a RAT test.(external link)
All RAT kits should be kept out of reach of young children and stored safely according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
