What are rapid testing kits?
Rapid testing kits are designed for quick and easy diagnostic testing. Rapid tests were first developed in the early 1990s for use in developing countries, where specialised laboratory facilities were not easily available. They are used for preliminary screening tests, emergencies and in health settings that have limited pathology resources. Rapid Testing Kits deliver important diagnostic results so that the spread of infections may be curtailed and the health practitioner is able to administer speedy treatment to the patient.
