Procedure

We have a safe designated testing facility at the clinic. Your Covid-19 PCR Test is taken by inserting a small swab at the back of your throat and up your nose, to your nasopharyngeal area to collect the sample.

Analysis of extracted genetic material is performed using a validated methodology (RT-PCR) to confirm the presence or absence of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

We have same day and next day results service.

For tests carried out before 7:30am results/certificate will be sent via email the same evening between 5pm and Midnight.

Tests taken after 7.30am, results and certificate will be emailed the next evening between 5pm and midnight except of Fridays when the last run of tests has to be before 7:30am. No tests are performed or results sent over the weekend except for the Saturday emergency service.

Saturday emergency service is a same day service, however this is at a higher cost due to higher lab costs and specific courier fees. Please send us a message if this service is required so we can make the necessary arrangements.
