Due to the increased need of Rapid Antigen Test Kits (RATs), Winc is also offering RAT kits. Please note that discounts will not be applied to Rapid Antigen Test Kit prices. NDS will continue to provide updates on PPE and RAT stock availability in the coming weeks. The discounts across Winc’s range of items will be significant compared to the current Winc Office Products Catalogue price.
