FAQ

Check out our frequently asked questions about COVID 19 tests and answer your questions.

  • Which Covid 19 test do I need to travel?
    This depends on each country. In general, for international trips a negative (not detected) RT-PCR test is requested. Some countries only require a rapid antigen test. Check this information with your airline or official websites of your country of destination.
  • How long in advance do I need to take a test?

    For PCR tests we need to collect the sample preferably 48 hours before travelling. It is possible to get the results on the same day – if the test is performed by 4 pm – with an additional cost. This is called Fast-track or express test.

    Please note the lab does not open on Sundays.

    If you only need an antigen test, you can have this done on the same day as the result takes 15 minutes.

  • How do I get the results of the tests?

    We can print the results, however, in general, you will receive them by email, which is a valid proof at official checkpoints.

  • Do I have to make an appointment?

    You are advised to make an appointment to avoid crowding due to Covid 19. You can make an appointment by calling us on  0034 977 351 212 or by  contact form for this website. We will contact you back asap.

  • Which test should I take if I have symptoms compatible with Covid-19?

    We recommend antigen test and PCR. The antigen test is highly useful during the first five days of showing symptoms.

  • How are the samples for PCR and rapid antigen test collected?

    For PCR test we use a thin swab which is introduced in the nose and throat. A sample can also be taken from the saliva, a method useful in children or patients who have problems in their nostrils. You should check that saliva tests are accepted in your destination.

    For antigen tests we use ultra-thin swabs introduced in the nose and/or throat.

  • Do the PCR and antigen tests hurt?

    They do not hurt; however, you may have mild discomfort like nasal itching, watery eyes, sneezing, or a sensation of water inside the nose. This discomfort disappears within minutes.

  • Do children have to take a PCR test to travel?

    This is not compulsory for children under 6 years of age in Spain, however, you should check whether it is obligatory in your destination.

  • Where can I take these tests?

    You can have PCR, antigen and rapid antibody tests in our clinic or we can visit you within our area of influence. Please make an appointment and ask for information on our travelling expenses.

    To get a serology test in venous blood we can provide a medical prescription and direct you to a lab.

  • Which test should I take if I had been in contact with someone with positive Covid 19 and I do not have symptoms?

    The most reliable is the nasopharyngeal PCR, though the rapid antigen test is also frequently used.

  • How long should I wait before testing after being in contact with a positive case?

    It is highly variable, but in general, it takes about 3 to 5 days to detect a sufficient viral load. Testing earlier could produce a false negative result (a negative result due to a very low viral load). If you have symptoms, especially during the first 5 days, the rapid antigen test is very reliable (98&percent; sensitivity and 100&percent; specificity)

  • Which test should I take to know whether I have a past infection with Covid-19?

    To determine if you have generated defences to the infection with SARS-CoV-2 we use mainly two types of tests, a qualitative test, or rapid antibody test, performed with a single drop of venous blood with results back 12-15 minutes later and the quantitative test, via a sample of venous blood studied in a lab, which detects not only the presence of antibodies (defences) but also the type and quantity (titer) of each one (IgM, IgG, IgE).
