Medical Information

The PCR swab uses samples from the back of the nose and throat to detect current, active coronavirus infection with very high accuracy. Results are analysed in a UKAS accredited medical laboratory and delivered within 48 hours.

Infection with SARS-CoV-2, an RNA virus, is diagnosed using reverse-transcriptase PCR. The assays used are highly accurate and show a minimum sensitivity of 98% and a specificity of 100%, with no cross-reactivity with other viruses.
