Customers purchasing this test will be required to take their own swab/sample for Day 2 and Day 8.

Day 2 and Day 8 tests will be processed as ‘Nextday‘ tests which is calculated from the receipt of the sample/swab back to the clinic. Day 5 is a ‘Sameday‘ result which is calculated from the day you have your swab taken in clinic. The definition of ‘Nextday’ and ‘Sameday‘ can be found using the Information button located at the bottom of each set of tests for further clarification and timescales.
A PCR Swab Test detects the presence of the RNA of the virus itself. This means that it will pick up the presence of the actual virus in the nose and throat, and is 100% sensitive at detecting any trace of the virus. Once your sample has been processed, you will then receive your results via email with certification from a clinician.
Test Preparation: Please make sure you don’t eat, drink or chew gum at least 30 minutes before you take the mouth and nasal swab test. Doing this can contaminate your sample, which may result in it needing a retest and therefore, delaying your result.
