Coronavirus Testing

We are able to test you for Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), whether you have current symptoms or,

to find out if you have developed antibodies from a past infection. 

All kits are posted to your address and you send your sample to the laboratory by post. All instructions are included in the kit.

We will contact you via phone and email for your results.

SARS-CoV-2 diagnosed using reverse-transcriptase PCR.

If you think you have symptoms of Covid-19, such as such as fever, fatigue, cough (with or without sputum production), anorexia, malaise, muscle pain, sore throat, dyspnea, nasal congestion, or headache. Rarely, patients may also present with diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting. Loss of taste and smell has been reported early in the infection.

Most patients who recover from coronavirus have been found to produce antibodies, but it is not yet known if an individual with a positive result showing presence of IgG levels following being infected with SARS-CoV-2 will be protected, either fully or partially from future infection, or for how long protective immunity may last.
