A Covid-19 PCR test looks for the presence of the Covid-19 virus on a sample taken from your nose and throat; collected using a long cotton bud. Medicspot has partnered with a world-class UKAS accredited laboratory to provide this testing to ensure fast and accurate results. Our Covid-19 PCR test has a sensitivity of 98% and specificity of 99%+ when performed correctly.
Your sample can be collected in a gentle and non-invasive way using the provided swab.
Clear instructions on how to take your swab will be provided in your test kit.
Covid-19 home tests, where samples are processed at home instead of an accredited laboratory, are not clinically validated.
This is a clinically validated laboratory-based Covid-19 PCR test, processed at our UKAS accredited laboratory which is also used by the NHS.
Our swab test is self-performed by the patient (who may collect their sample at home), however, samples are sent to our UKAS accredited laboratory for analysis.
Negative – You do not have any evidence of an active infection.
Positive – The Covid-19 virus has been detected on your swab. You will not be able to travel and we will inform NHS Public Health about your positive result.
Inconclusive/Needs Repeated – Very infrequently, your swab result will need to be repeated. This is often due to poor sample taking technique. You will need to purchase another swab kit.
At the time of registering your swab, you can choose to include your passport number on your fit to fly certificate as this is required by some countries. For extra peace of mind, you can also complete a short medical questionnaire stating that you don’t have any symptoms of Covid-19; which is required by some other countries.
You will be issued a doctor-signed fit to fly certificate if you test negative for Covid-19. However, if you test negative and another member of your household tests positive, we will not be able to issue you with a fit to fly certificate as you should not travel due to guidelines. We do not issue fit to fly certificates if you test positive for Covid-19.
You must register your kit before returning it to the pharmacy. If you have problems registering your kit on a mobile device, please use a desktop computer. If you need further assistance, please call Medicspot’s customer service line, who can complete the form over the phone.
