COVID-19 RT-PCR test

COVID-19 test by Reverse Transcription - Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR)

Our aim is to make testing easier and less traumatic by non-invasive SELF-sampling. Anterior nasal swab samples are taken by the patient without the need for a nurse.

Anterior nasal swabs have been extensively validated on our platforms following protocols that have been given Emergency Use Access by the CDC (USA).
