Avonchem Rapid Test Kits


Avonchemis the UK's leading supplier of diagnostic test kits and chemicals. It provides tests from CTK Biotech – a firm which develops and manufactures innovative immunodiagnostic tools and point of care diagnostic test kits. These products allow medical professionals to quickly and accurately diagnose disease and meet patient needs.



Avonchem believes antigen and antibody testing is key to helping restore confidence in these uncertain times. Testing is an important step to tell if someone has or has been previously infected with Covid-19. It gives companies better knowledge to help manage risk more effectively. It will also provide a level of assurance and comfort to staff or customers. Avonchem’s protocol delivers a cost-effective solution versus back to laboratory solutions.


With cases of coronavirus COVID-19 disease rising at an unprecedented rate, CTK has taken its proven strength in developing infectious disease diagnostics and in collaboration with its partners in China, has launched two on-site diagnostic tests for this virus, a real-time PCR based nucleic acid detection kit and a serological rapid screening test for the international market. Both tests must be administered by healthcare professionals

By offering both antigen and antibody testing we are able to provide tests to satisfy both these key questions:

Have I got it?

Have I had it?

Knowing you currently have the virus has obvious benefits; the decision to isolate thereby protecting family, friends & colleagues, reduction of spread and many other factors.


Knowing you have had the virus and if so, that you have developed antibodies that may indicate a level of immunity; welcome knowledge for many reasons.

Our Avonchem Service at STIC

For a minimum number of 30 tests, STIC offers a professional and efficient testing service. Please contact us at so we can quote for the attendance of a trained medic to administer the Avonchem Rapid Antibody Test and/or the Avonchem Antigen Test at a location of your choice, anywhere in the UK.

Please note:


These tests must be considered as a status check only to identify potential traces of coronavirus in your system.

Any line indicator against IgM/IgG, however feint, should be considered a positive result.

At this time, tests cannot give proof of immunity.

These checks are only to be considered valid at time of test and must be regularly taken as part of a testing regime.

If a subject has a positive or negative result but manifests any breathing or respiratory difficulties, a professional physician/emergency medical support must be alerted immediately.
