If you have symptoms of Covid-19 or need to prove you don’t have coronavirus – for example to return to work or fly with certain airlines – this quick and easy PCR Swab test can help. The exact same test being used by the NHS and government departments worldwide, it will identify if you have an active case of Covid-19.

 

What Is the Covid-19 PCR Test?

The Covid-19 PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test looks for the Covid-19 virus in a sample of your saliva. It can be collected from the back of your mouth or from inside your nose. The sample you collect is then processed in The Doctors Laboratory lab where it is put into a solution. If the Covid-19 virus is present, it will set off a chain reaction that can be detected (hence its name!).

The test is very accurate and can give you a result within 24-36 hours.
