Covid-19 Test Kits Available

Covid-19: Private Testing

What Tests Are There?

Covid-19 Tests can be differentiated into two main categories:

(1) PCR Antigen Testing ( Do I have Covid-19 and infectious right now? )

(2) IgG Antibody Testing ( Have I had Covid-19 previously? )

Covid-19 PCR Antigen Test

Throat & Nasal PCR tests are now available for next day delivery from ZoomDoc. This test looks for fragments of the Covid-19 virus (RNA) on the test swab.

A minimum sensitivity of 98% and a specificity of 100%, with no cross-reactivity with other viruses.

Simple swab test to be taken at home and sent to our partner laboratory. 

Who should take this test?

If you have current symptoms of Covid-19, including a persistent cough, high fever or shortness of breath symptoms. Additionally, if you believe that you have had recent exposure to the virus and are worried that you may be infectious. In the earliest stages of the illness, many patients may be asymptomatic.

The PCR test detects the presence of Covid-19.

ZoomDoc can provide this test to all patients aged 5 years and above.

When should this test be undertaken?

We recommend that you undertake this test between days 1-14 of the onset of symptoms or if you believe that you have recently been exposed to the virus.

Many International Travel Destinations now require a negative PCR travel certificate before their journey. ZoomDoc can also provide this for you and your family.

IgG Antibody Testing

This test accurately detects whether you have produced IgG antibodies against Covid-19. This would confirm a past infection. The test is currently undertake by a normal blood test that can be taken at home or at work and the sample will then be sent directly back to our partner laboratory for analysis. 

Who should take this test?

If you are keen to confirm a past infection with Covid-19. At present, having antibodies does not confirm immunity or prevent you from getting Covid-19 again.

When should this test be undertaken?

We recommend that you undertake this test at least 15 days after the onset of symptoms. It takes a few weeks for your immune system to make IgG antibodies to Covid-19 and for the antibodies to be detected.
