Call for participants: Loughborough University's Covid-19 Test evaluation

Volunteers are required for a Loughborough University research project about rapid antigen-based Covid-19 tests.

The research is being conducted by the Wolfson School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering and to support the project, saliva samples from healthy individuals will need to be evaluated.

Those who can support the project are asked to email to register their interest.

Further details of the study, as well as the relevant online forms and a health questionnaire, will be sent in reply to this email. The project team are requesting that all forms are submitted by 16 November 2021.

After the research team has checked the forms, they will contact you to confirm your participation, which will be conducted week commencing 22 November 2021.

On the day of the study, participants will be asked to donate a saliva sample, which will be collected using a tube, and can be sent to a preferred location in advance. This sample tube will then be collected from that location using social distancing measures. Once evaluated, the sample will be disposed of.
