Returns, Warranties, and Exchanges

Due to the nature of PPE products and Rapid Tests, The Canadian Shield cannot offer returns or exchanges on any product after it has left our facility.

In other words, all sales are final.

Shipping & Fulfillment Timelines

The Canadian Shield will fulfill all online orders within the stated fulfilment timeline, however, external factors with third-party delivery services may result in shipment delays. The Canadian Shield will make every effort to work with you as the customer and the delivery service, however once a package leaves our facility, we cannot guarantee the delivery date.

Currently, the immense flooding in British Columbia has caused significant damage to cities and roadways, which has ultimately halted ground shipments to certain parts of the province. We are working with our delivery service reps to find a solution to this issue ASAP. However, if you are ordering to a location affected by the flooding, it is very likely your shipment will be delayed.

Wrong Address Policy

If you’ve entered the incorrect shipping address at checkout, you will still have the chance to update it using the 'Update Address' button located in the order confirmation window, as well as, at the bottom of the order confirmation email. However, please understand that if your order has already shipped, you will be unable to update the shipping address. 

If your order has shipped with the wrong shipping address, you will need to contact the shipping provider directly (either UPS of Canada Post). While it's not guaranteed, they may be able reroute the shipment to the correct address for you (additional fees may apply). 

The Canadian Shield will not reship any orders if the wrong address has been inputted by the customer at checkout. We get it, mistakes happen. So we kindly ask you as the customer to carefully review your shipping address at checkout and if you need to make a change, please use the method described above. 

Rapid Tests

  • BTNX COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Testing Device Instructional Video
  • BTNX Rapid Response Product Manual
  • BTNX Rapid Response Procedure Card

However, if your order has already shipped out, we are unfortunately unable to cancel or refund the order.

Self-swabbing by trained individuals is currently permitted in certain provinces (Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia). Before Rapid Testing kits can be purchased, the following training materials and documents must be reviewed:

Rapid antigen testing devices should only be used for screening purposes. Nucleic acid-based testing, also called molecular testing or PCR, is the gold standard to diagnose active COVID-19 infection in patients with symptoms. For more information about self-testing and antigen testing devices, please visit the Health Canada website here.

About the Rapid Response™ COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test Device 

The Rapid Response™ COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test Device detects the presence of SARS-CoV-2 viral nucleoprotein antigens in nasal and nasopharyngeal secretions. In just 15 minutes, individuals can determine a positive or negative result. If positive, individuals should adhere to their local public health guidelines and verify results with a PCR test.

BTNX Rapid Response COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test Device Instruction Video

General Information about the Rapid Response™ COVID-19 Antigen Swab Tests

Rapid response test results are for the identification of the SARS-CoV-2 viral nucleoprotein antigen. These tests are designed for use during the acute phase of infection - about 6 days after exposure to or onset of COVID-19 symptoms. Laboratories are required to report all positive results to the appropriate public health authorities. Individuals who receive a positive result should adhere to their local Public Health guidelines.

Cold Weather Warning

As the weather gets colder in Canada, we understand some customers may be concerned about the sub-zero temperatures during the shipment of Rapid Test Kits. Transport temperatures dipping below 0°C for short durations of time will not have an adverse effect on the test, or the buffer liquid.

Recommendation: It’s important to bring the tests to room temperature before adding the sample into the test, as low ambient temperatures when conducting the test may cause false results. We recommend letting the test kit contents sit out for 4-6 hours before use.

Yes! The Canadian Shield holds a Medical Device Establishment License from Health Canada.

The Rapid Response COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test Device, manufactured by BTNX Inc., is a Health Canada authorized COVID-19 testing device.

For a full list of authorized testing devices, please visit the Health Canada website.

Rapid Tests are used as a serial screening tool whereby individuals test themselves 2 or 3 times a week to detect if they are an asymptomatic carrier of covid-19. These tests are most effective when you are infectious and are one more layer of peace of mind and safety. 

Rapid antigen testing devices should only be used for screening purposes. Nucleic acid-based testing, also called molecular testing or PCR, is the gold standard to diagnose active COVID-19 infection in patients with symptoms. For more information about self-testing and antigen testing devices, please visit the Health Canada website here

Yes. Like all medical devices, the Rapid Response COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Testing device has an expiration date listed on the outside of the kit box as well as the Cassette testing device package. This expiration date is approximately two years from the manufacturing date. 

Provincial regulations around rapid testing for the general public are changing frequently. We will continue to update our website and social media with any changes in regulations as soon as we are able to.

The BTNX Rapid Response Rapid Test cannot be used for travel. The regulations around COVID testing for travel is highly dependent on the country you are traveling to. While rapid antigen tests may be accepted in some countries, these tests need to be performed and signed-off by a trained individual, doctor, or pharmacist. We highly recommend you inquire with your country of destination or airline to find out what type of test you need to travel.  

The BTNX nasal swabs are sterilized using ethylene oxide. This process is completely safe for the user and has been used for decades on medical equipment. The sterilization process follows ISO 11135 (Sterilization of health-care products) and ISO 10993 (Biological evaluation of medical devices). Additionally, all nasal swabs have passed testing for both toxicology and biocompatibility.
