Customer Reviews
We recently started selling your HCG tests via our Australian partner and have been very impressed with the quality and consistency of the tests. They seem to be superior to our current manufacturer and we also know that you are far more reliable in terms of production times and communication.

—— One customer from Europe

We would like to explore the possibility of switching our HCG tests over to you. We have been reluctant in the past to move everything over to you as it makes us very reliant on you. However, we have always found you to be by far the most reliable of all our Chinese manufacturers and so we feel comfortable strengthening our partnership further

My oldest daughter actually has Lyme disease. She spent almost 1 year in a wheelchair because of Lyme. She is doing very well now. I used 2 of the samples. 1 to test my Lyme diagnosed daughter and 1 to test my daughter who does not have Lyme. Your tests worked well. My daughter with Lyme tested positive and the one who does not tested negative.

—— Ms Sheila

Whenever I have the requests,AllTest always give me the satisfied reply at the first time.

Is it COVID or a cold? How to know as Omicron Cases Rise


No specific symptom — or lack of one — can say for sure it's COVID. You have to test.


Is it COVID or just a cold?


It's impossible to know for sure whether you have COVID-19 without a test,

"There's no specific symptom or lack of symptom that can say for sure it is COVID or not."


Right now, some of the most commonly experienced symptoms of COVID-19 include:

  • Sore throat.
  • Runny nose.
  • Sneezing.
  • New or worsening cough.
  • Fatigue.
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
  • Temperature equal to or more than 38 C.

"Many people who have COVID infection feel almost nothing or very mild symptoms — especially if they're young and healthy — versus some people as they start to get into their 40s, 50s and upwards seem to be much more symptomatic," said Dr. Lisa Barrett, an infectious disease doctor and researcher at Dalhousie University in Halifax.

And a once telltale sign has all but disappeared.

"That loss of taste and smell, which was kind of a warning symptom of, like, this is very likely COVID … that has evolved out of the virus, where it's less prominent now," said Barrett.

What doctors say they are seeing more of with Omicron is gastrointestinal symptoms, especially diarrhea, but also vomiting and abdominal pain.

Still, the bottom line is that testing is the only way to know for sure whether you have COVID-19

If you have man

ageable symptoms, like a mild cold, should you still do a COVID-19 test?

Doctors say yes.

"The purpose of a rapid test is not to tell you you're not infected," said Barrett. "The purpose of a rapid test at this point is to tell you, if you do have a positive, that it's highly likely that you have Omicron, or COVID."

And knowing that is important for several reasons. "If you're a person at high risk, getting a test would make you eligible for antiviral treatment," said Dr. Kashif Pirzada, an emergency physician in Toronto.

He recommends anyone who is elderly, immunocompromised, or who has multiple medical conditions to get a rapid antigen test at the very least, though a PCR would be best. Still, he said a positive rapid test "would put you in line to get these new antiviral medications," including Remdesivir or Paxlovid.

Rapid testing is also recommended if you are young or otherwise healthy!
