What is a COVID-19 PCR test?
A PCR test for COVID-19 is a test used to diagnosis people who are currently infected with SARS-CoV-2, which is the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. The PCR test is the “gold standard” test for diagnosing COVID-19 because it’s the most accurate and reliable test.However, PCR still has its caveats. These types of Covid-19 test need to be sent away to a laboratory for analysis, meaning it can take days for people to find out their results.In our case the PCR test is sent to a specialized laboratory in Athens and the results are usually ready the next day after sampling usually around 18.00 h
What is a rapid test?
LFTs or Rapid tests are similar to PCR tests, in that they’re both types of antigen test, designed to pick up active Covid-19 infection rather than antibodies to the disease. With a Covid-19 rapid test , a nasopharyngeal sample is placed on a small absorbent pad, which is then drawn along the pad via a capillary line to a strip coated in antibodies, which bind to SARS-Cov-2 proteins. If these proteins are present, this will show as a coloured line on the test, indicating infection.The results are ready approximately 15-30 min after sampling

The test can be performed inside our laboratory in special cases and after you book an appointment
