At Home Test kits – Peace of Mind

Western Diagnostic Pathology is the leading supplier of on-site or at home testing products for Australians. More Australians use our on-site instant testing products than any other product in the market.

Western Diagnostic Pathology is able to supply a variety of on-site “instant” test kits that enable you to make informed decisions about issues that might otherwise compromise your health or safety. Our quality standards ensure that our at home testing products are reliable and validated against laboratory standards. 

At home or on-site “instant” test kit results cannot be relied upon for medico legal purposes as they do not cover the chain of custody requirements in specimen handling nor are they confirmed by the “gold standard” laboratory based liquid/gas chromatography and mass spectrometry analysis. Accordingly home kits are subject to falsely positive and falsely negative results that may be caused by medications, and other factors. This means that their accuracy and reliability should be classified as “peace of mind” status only.
