Rapid Antigen Tests

Our saliva COVID-19 test is not a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT). Rako Science does not supply RATs.

RATs are prone to false test results and unsuitable for surveillance testing. Learn more

WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE SAID ABOUT OUR COVID-19 TESTING SERVICES

Through Rako Science, we had all our pre-departure saliva-based COVID-19 testing for both the Final Olympic Qualification Regatta and the Tokyo Olympic Games completed locally, in a collection site opened with our team in mind.
