: Australia’s Testing Kit Locater Online : Australia’s Testing Kit Locater Online

During the Omicron surge, a new website is helping desperate Australians obtain rapid antigen tests (RATs), which are in high demand.


On Monday, the website ‘Find a RAT’ was launched, which serves as a testing kit locater for residents across the country.

Matt Hayward, a software developer in Melbourne, Australia, created the new website for Pipelabs, a Melbourne-based software company.

Mr. Hayward said the inspiration for the idea came to him after witnessing the difficulties his partner had in getting a blood test.

‘I started the website because my partner couldn’t find a test,’ he explained.


It occurred to me that today would be a good day to put my technical expertise to work on the site.”

At around 10 a.m. on Monday, Mr. Hayward began work on the site and had it operational within a few hours.

Over a hundred Australians have already signed up since Mr. Hayward announced the site launch on Twitter late Monday night.

Australians can use the website to report if a store near them has stock of rapid tests, which are crowd-sourced.

The map shows “in stock,” “low stock,” and “no stock” as different shades of green, orange, and red.

Those who are looking for tests can then search for stock in their area.

While the site is still in its infancy, a large number of Australians have already contributed reports detailing the availability of products in their local stores.

Some users are already making jokes while manually entering their reports because of the teething issues.


As states and territories have ordered 84 million rapid tests, which will be made available in the coming weeks, Mr Hunt also reiterated that the tests will not be free for everyone.

Reporters in Melbourne heard him tell them that the demand for free goods would be impossible to meet if they had an unlimited supply and could give them to as many people as they wanted.

The next two months will see over 100 million rapid antigen tests available in addition to the 55 million PCR tests currently available.
