FAQ’s

PCR stands for Polymerase Chain Reaction and is a method of testing used to detect infectious diseases, including COVID-19. A PCR test is performed in a laboratory and is indicative of an individual’s COVID status at the time their sample is taken. It does not show previous infection. PCR tests are internationally recognised as the gold standard for COVID-19 testing by World Health Organisation (WHO) and the backbone of every government’s national testing program.

Check the latest guidance and travel advice from the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs at https://www.dfa.ie/travel/travel-advice/. If travelling from the UK, you can check the entry requirements for your destination online at gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice. The EU have introduced a new traffic light system that requires pre-flight testing for individuals departing from several ‘red list’ countries. You can view the latest travel restrictions online at https://reopen.europa.eu/en. Due to the constantly changing global environment entry requirements are subject to change, so keep checking in the weeks and days leading up to your trip.

Both tests are RT PCR and conducted in the same manner and produce the same certificate.  Some destinations require passport information on your certificate and we will include this where Travel Test is selected.

We can not advise on when to take the test due to ever changing government regulations.  We recommend you check with the relevant government website.

Unless exempt for medical reasons, all individuals entering testing locations must wear a face mask that covers both their nose and mouth. Clients who are exempt from wearing a face mask must wear a visor as an alternative. Spare visors will be kept on each site for those who do not have one.

We recommend you check with the relevant government website at your destination if a test is required for minors.  The requirements vary between countries.  We can provide testing for minors if required as long as a parent or guardian is present.

If using a work or university email, please check your server hasn’t restricted our emails as your results will have an attachment.

 

We will always aim to have your results next day (by 11.59pm) but as part of our quality service, where we have concerns on a sample, we will not release a result until thorough review has been carried out. This is in line with good laboratory practice.

Please log into the “my account” section of the website.  Once logged in, go to ‘My Appointments’  to view and reschedule your booking/bookings.  Please note you can only change the date and time of your appointment but not the location.

On occasion the testing process can return an unclear result. This is exceptionally uncommon.  Please contact our customer care team on +4428 94343005 should you require any further information on your unclear result.

Food or drink should not be consumed in the 30 minutes prior to collecting your swab sample.
