Covid19 Testing using the PCR Test – Current Infection

If you need a “fit to travel certificate” to show you are not carrying the Covid-19 virus to travel on business or on holiday, then this is the Covid19 testing service you need. You can attend our clinic for us to carry out the test, or you can be sent a test kit you can do the test at home and post it to the lab.

What Happens?

A swab will be placed 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).


Emergency Covid-19 RT-PCR tests can be carried out within 3-6 hours Monday to Saturdays. They are at a higher cost due to increased lab and courier costs – please message for urgent requirements and a quotation for your private Covid-19 Test requirements. We also have door to door home service and same day courier service – please email for details at

When will I get my results?
