Rapid antigen tests (RATs) remain a cornerstone of Australia's pandemic response. If you're looking to secure a steady supply of testing kits to ensure you're always well-equipped to prevent the spread of COVID-19, you're in luck.
We've rounded up a list of online destinations offering RAT bulk buying solutions and listed them below. These retailers offer tests in packs of 10 or more. Scroll on to learn more.
We're checking availability for RAT testing kits regularly but delivery times are subject to change. All tests sold in Australia must be approved by the TGA. Some sellers try and charge prices far above the average ("price gouging"). This isn't legal in Australia. Always consider your options carefully before buying.
A rapid antigen test is a screening tool used to detect COVID-19. You can take the test at home without the need for lab equipment or a health professional. Instead, place a saliva sample or nasal swab into a chemical solution. Results usually take less than 20 minutes.
Rapid antigen tests are not as accurate as a PCR test, with a higher chance of a false negative. But the government advice on receiving a positive result on a RAT has changed. Whereas you previously had to arrange a PCR COVID test from a clinic for confirmation, you are now advised simply to self-isolate.
COVID-19 testing kits require TGA approval and inclusion in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) before being sold legally in Australia. Stock is limited, so grab yourself a kit when they are available.
Pricing for RATs varies. You can expect to pay between $20 and $30 per pack, which typically contains 5 rapid antigen tests. It's possible to get the price down to under $3 per test if you buy multiple packs in a single purchase. This is a sensible option if you live in a large household or need to test yourself regularly due to travel.
RAT suppliers with the cheapest prices include Medmate and COVID Solutions Australia. If you prefer to buy from traditional retailers, Chemist Warehouse consistently has discounted RATs available.
Some countries and airlines require a pre-departure test result at check-in before you can board your flight. You can check the entry requirements of the country you are travelling to at the SmartTraveller website.
There are a variety of ways you can access free rapid antigen tests depending on where in Australia you live. The following is a brief rundown of the major ways individuals in each state and territory can access free RATs.
Isolation is no longer a requirement following a positive COVID result. However, the practice is strongly recommended by health authorities.
If you test positive for COVID-19, you it is highly recommended that you do not visit high-risk settings such as aged and disability care facilities for 7 days.
