Product Information

This convenient  home based self-swab PCR test is for early detection of COVID-19. It is accurate from the earliest pre-symptomatic stages of infection. It does not show whether you have had the virus previously.

You simply order the test, we send you the swab to the comfort of your home. After doing the test you return the swab to our lab with the return documentation. Using your swab our lab gets to work to identify COVID-19 virus by a PCR assay which is a laboratory-based process which takes several hours.

We then securely email you the results. 

If you need to know whether you are infected by the virus order this test now.  

This is the most accurate test early after infection. Our service is fast with a 24-48 hour turnaround of results from receipt of your sample at our lab.
