Newly developed COVID-19 test kits will be used to test swab samples collected at Singapore’s checkpoints from Thursday (Mar 5), promising results within three hours.

A collaboration between the Home Team Science & Technology Agency (HTX) and Veredus Laboratories, the HTX COVID-19 test kit has an accuracy of more than 99% and is able to test for a result in three hours. The test kit has provisional authorisation from the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) and can be used directly by laboratories or hospitals to test patients for clinical diagnosis
