Instant Strep Tests

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend where to buy instant strep tests? I would love to be able to keep them in the house. Especially since there are now 15 cases of strep between both ds's classes.

 

Thanks!

Just keep in mind they only test for strep A and if you get a negative result, it can still be positive on a culture.

I think they are great to have if you get a positive result though. I have never bought them, but I am going to order some. My kids tend to always have negative rapid tests though.

Yup...and it's important to swab the tonsils. If you don't "hit" the right spot you could have a false neg.
