Sales approved for COVID-19 professional rapid tests diagnosis in pharmacies

In view of the lack of supply of antigen rapid tests for self-diagnosis of COVID-19, which has become more intense in recent days due to the Christmas season, the Spanish Agency for Medicines and Health Products (AEMPS) has issued special authorisations for the sales of professional tests in pharmacies.

According to the aforementioned authorisation, the tests to be offered for sale must meet three conditions: they must be validated by the European Union, they must be nasal samples and they must belong to national companies.

In this way, Certest diagnostic tests for SARS-CoV-2 will be available to everyone through pharmacies and authorised points of sale. With more than 20 years of experience and expertise in the development of diagnostic tests, Certest Biotec is the largest national manufacturer of rapid tests and PCR tests, with more than two million rapid tests produced monthly, allowing a reliable result to be obtained quickly – in just 10 minutes – without the need for special equipment or facilities. The interpretation of the result is also very simple; one line in the result window indicates a negative result; two lines, a positive result.

As Certest Biotec’s exclusive distributor in Spain, Palex Medical is the sole company that distribute this type of test in Spain. The collaboration between the two companies is synonymous of success, as has been proven since the beginning of the pandemic thanks to the production capacity, coordination and speed in the supply of rapid tests and PCR to hospitals and diagnostic centres.
