Types of Covid- 19 (coronavirus) Testing available
• RT-PCR Swab Test: A PCR swab tests that can check for a current infection via the presence of the SARS-COV-2/COVID-19 virus.
• Antigen Test: (Lateral Flow)
• Antibody Test: To detect in the blood the levels of antibodies produced in response to the previous infection of COVID-19.
Difference between Lateral Flow Test and PCR Test.
Lateral flow test
These simple test kits detect viral proteins (antigens) from the SARS-CoV-2 virus in respiratory samples, such as from a nose or throat swab. If the target antigen is present in enough quantity it will bind to specific antibodies fixed to a paper strip enclosed in a plastic casing and generate a visual signal, usually within 30 minutes. These tests are not to be confused with rapid antibody tests, which use blood to detect antibodies generated in response to infection.
Polymerase chain reaction tests detect the virus’s RNA in a sample. The test amplifies small bits of genetic material to enable detection. So a test can give a positive result long after a person stops being infectious.

Why get Tested?
Covid-19 tests can help you determine your current antibody status. Our antibody tests can identify those who have shown an immune response to the virus, once they have recovered from suspected symptoms. Our PCR test will tell you if you are currently symptomatic or not. All our tests will supply you with a certificate indicating the date you were tested and your positive or negative result.
**For travellers only, before traveling we advise you to check Government advice in the links below:
For patients with current symptoms , we can post the test, the patient should return the swab to us or post it directly after testing at home, next day delivery.
