We are pleased to offer 3 options for laboratory testing for COVID. We offer Antibody test, Antigen test and PCR.
Travel certificate may be provided if requested.
PCR tests are used to directly screen for the presence of viral RNA, which will be detectable in the body before antibodies form or symptoms of the disease are present. This means the tests can tell whether or not someone has the virus very early on in their illness.
The sample is collected with a nasal or throat swab.
For a current infection or a flight back to certain countries, we continue to recommend a PCR COVID-19 swab which has close to 100% accuracy.
If the sample is taken between 8am and 10am from Monday to Saturday, we deliver the results the same day before 10pm. A travel certificate may be provided if requested.
Like RT-PCR, the rapid antigen detection test too seeks to detect the virus rather than the antibodies produced by the body.
It is a test on swabbed nasal samples that detects antigens (foreign substances that induce an immune response in the body) that are found on or within the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It is a point-of-care test, performed outside the conventional laboratory setting, and is used to quickly obtain a diagnostic result.
For Antigen we use Roche laboratory test for COVID-19 Antigen with a nasal swab and results in 20 minutes.
Results are delivered in 25 minutes and a travel certificate may be provided if requested.
We offer Diagreat cuantitative antibody testing with results within 25 minutes with Simple finger-prick test compared to a full blood draw, only 3 drops of blood. This test is also known as the “vaccine antibody test”, which not only provides a positive or negative result, but also the number of antibodies you have.
We recommend the Diagreat Antibody test for testing after having the vaccine but it is also helpful for after infection.
Results are delivered in 25 minutes.
