Molecular (PCR) Test COVID-19 – How is it done?
Before the sampling, the patient fills in the special form with his personal data and gives his consent for the processing. The molecular (PCR) test is done by taking a nasopharyngeal smear (lasting a few seconds) and using molecular virus detection techniques. This procedure is completely painless. The whole process takes only 10 minutes
The results are ready usually in 5-6 hours. If the sampling is done until 14:00 the result is ready the same day (response time varies according to volume of tests). The result bears the signatures of a Biopathologist and a Molecular Biologist, who ensure the validity of the answers.
The results are definitely sent the same day (usually untill 21:00) by email.
In case you need the COVID-19 test for traveling abroad, the test result is issued in English, including passport number, identity card and anything else required according to the instructions of the destination country. Some countries currently require a COVID-19 molecular test by PCR 48-72 hours before travel.
The cost of the test is€ 60.
