COVID-19 PCR (Swab) Test

With results in 24-36 hours, a PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test detects the COVID-19 virus’s genetic material and is carried out by taking a
nasopharyngeal and throat swab.

The PCR test is considered one of the most accurate methods of COVID-19 testing and is used by the HSE and the WHO to confirm current COVID-19 infections. This test is most widely accepted for travel; however, we recommend that you check with your airline and country of travel prior to booking. Please allow 48 hours at peak times.

The collection of the sample may be uncomfortable but, thanks to the training provided to our healthcare professionals, should not be painful. Positive and Negative results must be combined with clinical observations, patient history, and epidemiological information.

COVID-19 Antigen (Swab) Test

With results in only 15 minutes, the COVID-19 Antigen Test is a nasopharyngeal swab test that detects the COVID-19 Antigen.
An Antigen test detects the presence of a specific viral antigen, which implies current viral infection. Antigen tests for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19 Antigen) are generally less sensitive than the PCR test.

This test is intended for initial screening of coronavirus infection by detecting COVID-19 antigen, but should not be used as a sole criterion for the determination of SARS-CoV-2 infection. If you are experiencing any symptoms of coronavirus you should contact your GP to arrange a free HSE COVID-19 test. Positive and Negative results must be combined with clinical observations, patient history, and epidemiological information.

COVID-19 Antibody IgG/IgM Test

With results in 24 hours, the COVID-19 Antibody Test is a finger prick test which identifies whether the body has developed an antibody response to a COVID-19 infection.

It is not a viral test to identify if you currently have COVID-19.

A positive COVID-19 Antibody test means that you previously had or have been exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 and that your immune system has developed antibodies in response to it.
The test detects both the IgG and IgM antibodies which can be detected within 7 to 10 days of exposure to COVID-19. Positive and Negative results must be combined with clinical observations, patient history, and epidemiological information.
