As a company we are passionate and committed to assisting the U.K. workforce and economy return to a sense of normality. We aim to achieve this by making private COVID-19 tests both accessible and affordable to all UK workers and general public.
Our tests are independently sourced and therefore do not have a detrimental impact to the NHS with regards to testing capacity and capabilities. Furthermore, the provision, affordability and accessibility of private testing actually alleviates the burden currently being placed on the NHS and it’s COVID-19 related services.
Our tests are NOT DESIGNED FOR SELF HOME USE. It is imperative that all tests, to include any swab testing, are carried by fully trained and insured medical operatives at our home based studio in London. We offer Antigen and PCR testing.
Please note that all franchise locations operate a strict zero refund policy for unattended or cancelled appointments. The only exception to this is if the cancellation has been caused by government policy such as lockdowns or the prohibition of moving between tiers for example. If a cancellation is caused by government policy, patrons will be able to reschedule their appointment for a future date or receive a refund.
Have you got it? The Rapid Antigen test consists solely of a nasal swab. It is currently the only 15 minute Antigen test available in the UK. Testing can be carried out both onsite at one of our COVID secure testing facilities in London by one of our fully trained and insured medical operatives, ensuring accurate results and safeguarding against cross contamination. Existing self-administered home testing swab kits provided by other suppliers, leave a great deal of room for user error and cross contamination and thus making results unreliable and inaccurate. Please be aware that on-site testing is only allowed if you are not showing any symptoms of COVID-19. If you are showing any sign of COVID-19 symptoms, please contact us directly to arrange off-site or mobile testing.
All Antigen test results are available within 15 minute although in many instances results are often faster.
Out of hours screening for Antigen and PCR tests are available on request. Please note an additional fee will be added.
Please note that results are only given verbally and should you require testing for travel purposes then you will be required to take the "fit to fly" or certification service
Have you had it? Antibody testing is designed for persons who suspect that they may have been previously infected with the COVID virus. Most patients that have had the disease previously have been found to produce the IgG antibody.
Testing should be carried out fourteen days or more following exposure or onset of symptoms.
Please note; it is not yet fully known if an individual with a positive result and also showing the presence of IgG levels following infection with COVID-19 will be protected, either fully or partially from future infection, or the duration of immunity may last. Therefore, all guidelines regarding social distancing and personal protection should still be adhered to regardless of a positive antibody testing result. Please continue to refrain from personal contact with persons experiencing COVID symptoms such as coughs or a high temperature!
Please consult your GP should you have any queries regarding the testing and the associated implications of the results. Please refer to our product page for more information.
We have partnered with a U.K based Laboratory with experience in the Molecular and Clinical Diagnostics field to provide highly accredited ISO:15189 credentials to bring COVID-19 testing under this accreditation; a recognised standard the Department of Health & Social Care have stipulated is the required standard of an operating laboratory offering COVID-19 test services.
PCR tests look for the genetic code (RNA) of the virus. The test involves taking a swab of the throat and nose. The test will confirm if an individual who is showing symptoms of the virus currently has it. It will not confirm whether they have had it and have now recovered. PCR tests take up to 48 hours as the collected samples need to be analysed by a UK based lab.
Highlights of the PCR service include:
Simple agreement to cover your COVID-19 test requirement
Provision of swab sampling kits meeting UN3373 standards
Trained staff to sample
Results in under 48hrs (from receipt of sample)
Fit to fly certification
Post testing, an email will be sent to confirm the date, time & outcome of the test.
Please note that it is the patient responsibility to understand the requirements of the Airline or test-requiring agency with regard to timing of the swab test and thus we cannot give specific advice in this regard.
