This coronavirus PCR test will indicate if you are currently infected with COVID-19. This is a gold standard throat and nose swab test which can be self-collected by individuals at home.
Our PCR test can be used to provide proof of a negative test prior to, or after travel. We provide a Tracked24* envelope to return your sample to our UKAS accredited lab for analysis. Results will be provided within 48 hours of receipt of your sample at our lab. We will also provide you with a test certificate.
If you are taking the test to check if you have Covid-19, then your samples should be collected between 1-5 days from the onset of symptoms.
PCR swab test has a 98% sensitivity, 100% specificity and 98% accuracy.
Please note that the laboratory is legally obliged to share the details of any positive COVID-19 test results with NHS Test and Trace.
*We cannot guarantee Royal Mail’s Tracked24 service or that you will receive your results before your travel date if taking a coronavirus test to gain proof of a negative result prior to travelling from the UK.
Please follow all instructions very carefully. The coronavirus test requires the user to collect a swab from the nose and throat. If instructions are not followed precisely and contact is not made correctly with the nose and throat we may not be able to provide a result.
All our tests are only available to adults aged 18+.
