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.
