Remember to wear a mask to your appointment and ensure that you have been symptom-free for the last 14 days. Please do not arrive early for your appointment, and note that we won’t allow anyone else in with you.

When can I not get a London express COVID-19 PCR test?

Don’t visit either of our London COVID-19 PCR testing clinics if, within the last 10 days: You’ve had a positive COVID test. You’ve had COVID-19 symptoms. You’ve had contact with someone who has COVID or COVID symptoms. You’ve come from a red-list country.

How long do the results take to arrive?

Our 60-minute PCR express tests will guarantee you results in 60 minutes or less. Because we test each sample in store with our express 60-minute PCR machines, we can guarantee punctual results.

What is the difference between a Private PCR COVID-19 test and a Lateral Flow Test?

A private Covid-19 PCR test provides the certificate of testing that airlines and many overseas countries require to travel and enter those countries. It is considered the gold standard of Covid-19 testing as it can reliably detect if you are currently infected with the virus. A lateral flow test is not as reliable as the PCR test, and it’s not accepted by many airlines as proof that you’re Fit to Fly. However, you should always check with the country you are travelling to for confirmation before booking with us, as many countries are now accepting lateral flow tests.

On the NHS, it’s currently not possible to request a test for travel or return to work purposes, and you could wait up to 5 days for your results too. Same-day COVID-19 express PCR tests give you reassurance and peace of mind that you’re not transmitting the disease currently. With our 12 nationwide locations close to our nation’s main airports in London, Southampton, Manchester, and Liverpool, an express PCR can provide much-needed reassurance when travelling.
PCR tests in the laboratory require a processing step to extract the RNA from the sample, followed by cycles of heating and cooling to amplify or multiply the concentration of the virus until it becomes detectable. This whole process can take hours, and in addition, the sample also needs to be transported to the lab, sitting in a queue until it can be processed.
Our 60-minute PCR tests are highly accurate. PCR tests are the gold standard of Covid-19 testing. The tests we use have a specificity of 98.3% and sensitivity of 96.9%. See the Performance Evaluation here.
