COVID-19

What tests are available for COVID-19?

We offer two kinds of tests for COVID-19: a diagnostic test (PCR or Rapid) and antibodies test. PCR tests detect viral RNA and the results are available within 24-48 hours.

The RAPID antigen tests are on-the-spot screening tests that detect proteins in the virus and, as the name suggests, deliver results within minutes.

Antibodies tests look for antibodies created by your immune system in your blood that fight the virus that causes COVID-19. They are made after you have been infected or have been vaccinated against an infection. The results are available within minutes.
