  • Our Tests in Comparison to Government / NHS Tests

      Government/NHS tests cannot be used for travel purposes as no results sheet or fit-to-fly certification is given. Our tests are recognised by all airlines and a full results sheet is sent via email the day after you come in for a test.

  • How is an RT-PCR test different?

      Like a standard PCR test, an RT-PCR test analyses swab samples from the nose and throat to detect the Covid-19 virus.

      An RT-PCR test is sufficient in countries that require a PCR test for entry purposes. However, certain countries specifically request RT-PCR tests. 

      You will get more precise results from Covid-19 PCR tests if you take them between Days 1 and 5 from when you begin displaying symptoms.

  • What is a PCR Test?

      A PCR test looks for RNA related to a current Covid-19 infection. The laboratory analyses a swab sample which is taken from your throat and nose.

  • Why do I need a PCR test for travel?

      PCR tests are now a mandatory requirement for visiting most countries.

  • When should I book the test?

      Most countries only accept a negative result from a test within 72 hours of the flight. However, every country and airline company have their own rules. It is recommended that you enquire about your destination country beforehand.

      At our Cambridge clinic, we offer both same-day and next-day results services.

      Please visit the government’s website for up-to-date travel guidelines.

  • Will I get a travel certificate?

      Yes. We provide certificates for conclusive negative test results. The certificate is provided via email.

      Our certificates contain personal details and the test result with a full laboratory report. The certificate will be attested by the expert who tested your sample.

  • Can I buy tests, rather than coming to the Cambridge clinic for testing?

      Click here to order a home PCR test kit from us.

      Please note, most of the popular travel destinations require that the travel test be taken within 72 hours of the flight. In such instances, the home test may not be a good choice. Home test results are processed and sent within 48 hours of our laboratory receiving the test samples.

  • How reliable is the test?

      The test has 100% sensitivity

  • Will the test tell me if I’ve recently had the virus?

      No. A PCR test looks for a current infection.

  • What should I do if I receive a positive result?

      If your test shows you are positive for Covid-19, you must begin self-isolating immediately and delay your travel plans.

      You can contact the NHS online or by dialling 111 for more comprehensive advice.
