The ARISTA COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test is rolling out for self-test using the same reliable technology as our professional use product. That means you can now test for COVID-19 infection in the safety of your own home and get your result in 15 minutes. Super convenient with no line-up or travel time. And paired with the Viva Life App, you have the option to securely store all your records on your phone and generate a digital certificate whenever required. It’s all in your hands.

The ARISTA COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test is available for professional use at point-of-care by healthcare providers or personnel trained in any laboratory and non-laboratory environment that meets the requirements; and for self-test use. Both products offer the same reliable technology but differ somewhat in the sample specimen collection procedure. Nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal specimen collection is only available at point-of-care settings, while anterior nasal and deep throat sputum specimen collection is available for self-test. In all cases, the patient can upload their results to the companion Viva Life App.

How to Use the ARISTA COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test Kit

  1. Make sure the space that you are using for testing is clean and sanitized. Wash your hands with soap / use a 70% Alcohol Hand Sanitizer.
  2. Pierce the foil on the tube with diluent using the pointed end from the Dropper Cap.
  3. The best time to collect the sputum sample is in the morning before brushing your teeth. Breath in deeply and breath out using your mouth forcefully.
  4. Cough deep from within your chest to produce the sputum, and spit your sputum into the sputum dish.
  5. Peel the sterile swab, be careful not to touch the tip with your hand. Dip the tip into your sputum, make sure to cover the whole tip by twisting it.
  6. Dip the swab tip into the diluent. Pince the tube and rotate the swab, make sure that the swab is fully immersed in the diluent.
  7. Remove the swab while pinching it using the tube to make sure all the samples remain in the tube. Dispose of the swab properly (in a sealable bag).
  8. Seal the tube using the dropper cap. Give it a good swirl to make sure the sputum and diluent is mixed properly in the tube.
  9. Twist open the dropper cap and drop 4 drops of the sample into the sample well of the test cassette.
  10. Start the stopwatch and read the results after 15 minutes.


Interpreting the ARISTA Covid-19 Antigen Nasal Swab Rapid Test Kit

POSITIVE: If both the quality control “C” line and the test “T” line is red (even if faint), then the test result is positive and you are most likely infected with COVID-19.

You need to self-isolate immediately. Contact your doctor and you may be required to undergo a PCR test to confirm the test result.

NEGATIVE: If the quality control “C” line is red (even if faint), and the test “T” line is blank, then the test result is negative and you are unlikely to have COVID-19.

There is a very low chance you are currently infectious to others. Note that this result is only valid for the day you take the test. Continue to follow the hygiene guidelines.

INVALID: If the quality control “C” line is blank, then the test is considered invalid irrespective of any red band on the “T” band.
