HOW TO BinaxNOW COVID Test Instructions

The Coronavirus or Covid-19 is an infectious disease that took the world by storm in the year 2019. Since then, there have been over 6 million deaths as reported by the World Health Organization (WHO). With its fast worldwide spread, hospitals and clinics were filled with COVID patients and their family and friends, looking to get tested for COVID-19. At-home rapid testing became the easiest and quickest way to track down an outbreak and help curb the chaos of at-hospital testing. At Peach Medical Labs, we’re proud to be an authorized seller of Self-Test Kits like the BinaxNOW COVID test At-Home Antigen Self-Test Kit.


What’s included in the BinaxNOW Covid Test Kit?

The BinaxNow covid 19 kit carried by Peach Medical Labs contains two tests. This kit is available over the counter, can be purchased without a prescription, and is readily available for purchase over at the Peach Medical labs online store


The kit includes two tests. Each individually wrapped test can be used only once and you should allow at least 36 hours between each test to maximize the accuracy of your results. Before performing the test, carefully read the instructions to make sure you don’t miss out on any important information.

Items included in the kit:

  • 2 Test cards
  • 2 Dropper bottles
  • 2 Swabs
  • 1 Instruction sheet
  • 1 Covid-19 fact sheet


Note: Gloves and a timer are not included but you’ll require them for the test, so be sure to have them at hand before testing.


How to Perform the BinaxNOW Rapid Test at Home?

To perform the test you’ll only need to follow these 4 easy steps:

1. Prepare for the test

Wash your hands with soap and water or sanitize them thoroughly before using the kit. A single BinaxNOW COVID 19 Antigen Self-Test Kit includes 1 test card, one swab, and one dropper bottle. The card is the main component of your kit. It flips open to show you two holes and an adhesive strip.


Make sure to prepare a clean flat surface to lay your test on. Open the card and place it down on top of the sanitized flat surface. Remember to keep a timer on hand to make it easier to attain more accurate test results.


Do not touch the test strip with your hands. Any kind of germ transfer can affect the results of your BinaxNow Self-Test. Take the dropper bottle and remove the cap. Place the dropper straight above the top hole on the card and pour in 6 drops. Make sure your dropper tip doesn’t touch the test card.


Note: Make sure you see a result window on your test. The results window is a small square that appears blank before the test is performed and has the words Sample and Control written on the left side of it. If for some reason you don’t see this window, call our technical support at +1 833-637-1594. Don't use the test if the result window is missing.

2. Collect the nasal sample

Open the swab package from the stick end, making sure nothing touches the swab. Insert the swab in your nostril ½ to ¾ inches into the nostril, and not any deeper. Slowly move the swab inside the nostril in a circular motion 5 times for 15 seconds straight. Gently pull it out and do the same in the other nostril for another 15 seconds.


3. Perform the test

On the test card, insert the swab tip into the top hole and push it towards the bottom hole until it’s visible from above. Do not remove the swab. Now move it clockwise three times to ensure it mixes with the drops previously added. Peel off the adhesive tape carefully without touching any other part of the kit. The tape will easily come off with a gentle pull. Close the card and press it to seal. Set your timer for 15 minutes and wait for your results.


4. Check your test results

Look for your results on the window that’s present on the card. For positive results, a pink or purple line will be seen on both control and sample. Make sure to look closely at the sample line, even a faded line means the result is positive. A negative result will only show a pink or purple control line. If there is no sample line, this means your test result is negative.



Please note that sometimes there may be some discrepancies in the test result which prevent you from determining whether your result is negative or positive. These discrepancies may include:


  • Displaying only a blue control line
  • No lines seen on the test
  • A pink or purple line but only on the sample line
  • A blue control line and a pink/purple sample line


Any of the above results do not confirm the positivity or negativity of COVID-19, and a new test will be required. Your results will only be valid within the first 15 minutes after performing it. Once you have used the kit, dispose of all the used test components, and keep away from pets and children. You can find this easy-to-use BinaxNow test at Peach Medical labs’ online store now in stock and at a competitive price.


Another self-test kit we carry at Peach Medical Labs - the IHEALTH COVID-19 At-Home COVID-19 Antigen Self Test Kit is also available for purchase. It works a bit differently from BinaxNow as it uses a test tube to perform the test. The testing method behind it, however, is the same.
