⚠️ Be careful! Things to check with rapid antigen tests ⚠️

We're checking availability for RAT testing kits every hour but these products sell out quickly and prices can change rapidly. Most stores currently have 5 days or more delay on delivery. Delivery times are estimates and can change because of courier delays and supply chain issues. 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.

About COVID-19 home tests

A rapid antigen test (RAT) is a screening tool used to detect COVID-19 in asymptomatic humans. Similar to a pregnancy test, they can be quickly taken at home without the need for lab equipment or a health professional. Instead, you simply place a saliva sample or nasal swab into a chemical solution and wait for the results to show up. This usually takes less than 20 minutes.

Rapid antigen tests are not as accurate as a PCR test, with a higher chance of a false negative. If you receive a positive result or are suffering from COVID-like symptoms, you will need to arrange a PCR COVID test from a clinic and immediately self-isolate.

COVID-19 testing kits require TGA approval and inclusion in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) before they can be legally sold in Australia. You can purchase them from the above stores as of 1 November 2021. Stock is expected to be limited, so grab yourself a kit while they are still available.

To learn more about the science, head to our COVID-19 home testing hub.
