If you have symptoms or simply want to ensure that you are not currently infected, this is the gold standard test to take. Fast track option provides next day results and standard option provides results within 48 hours.

Tests are available from Monday to Saturday, between 8am and 11am for Fast Track option and between 11.20am and 5pm for standard option. 

How it works

  1. Payment will be collected on arrival at our test site.
  2. Our swab practitioner will carry out the test while you remain safely seated in your car.
  3. On the same day, the swab samples are couriered to our partner laboratory (one of the world’s leading testing labs). Fast track tests are despatched at 11.30am and standard tests at 6pm. 
  4. Fast track results are emailed to you any time between 9am and midday on the day after your test.
  5. Standard results are emailed to you either late afternoon on the day after your test or on the morning after that.
Please do not eat anything or chew gum immediately before having your swab taken.

Inconclusive tests

On rare occasions swab tests give inconclusive results, after which the lab automatically retests your swab. A retest normally produces a successful result, but could delay your result by a few hours.

Invalid results

On very rare occasions, a person’s swab test will be tested twice and still have an inconclusive result, meaning a second swab test will be needed. However, the invalid rate is just 0.2%.

The tests we use

The tests we use are manufactured by VIASURE and approved by the Department of Health, CE IVD marked and certified to ISO 13485.
