Covid-19 or Coronavirus is a contagious disease caused by the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). It is a respiratory tract illness that was first noted in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China, in December 2019. The covid virus has spread globally and resulted in a global pandemic. It is one of the deadliest diseases the world has ever seen.
If you have any symptoms, or if you are in contact with any covid positive person, it is advised to take covid test.
There are a different kinds of covid-19 tests, however the polymerase chain reaction test or “PCR test” is the standard covid test. The PCR test repeatedly replicates a little part of its genetic material to identify the presence of a virus. Test sensitivity for the PCR is quite high. As a result, the PCR test can also detect the virus in individuals who are either no longer highly infected with the virus or who are just mildly infected.
PCR Test (In-Lab)
This requires taking a swab from the nose and throat and then analysing the specimen in the lab using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). It tests your current infection status and a negative test result is sometimes required for travel overseas and return to work. The swabs are analysed at our lab and if they are with us before 4pm the results can be provided the same day with an extra charge. Otherwise, results typically provided within 24 hours.

Covid-19 / FLU Rapid Test (In Lab)
