Covid19 PCR Test
Matters of Health offers the latest in comfortable testing. No more back of the throat or nose swab tests. We offer gentle testing with the swab only 0.5 inch inside the nostrils for 15 secs! Suitable for children and sensitive adults!
Most countries will require this test within 72 hours of boarding of your flight or entry. The scientific and official name of this test is the Nucleic Acid Amplification (NAAT)/Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) for SARS-CoV-2 virus . This requires sampling via a nasal cotton swab sample taken from both nostrils by our doctor or clinic staff at our clinic. The sample is sent to the LifeLabs Surrey processing centre.
Covid19 Serology Test
Covid19 IgM Antibody Serology Test is required by some countries. Example, China. This is a blood test taken at LifeLabs by their expert technicians for drawing blood. This test checks for recent exposure to the Covid19 virus only and does not check for immunity. The patients requires a requisition from our physicians and the Lifelabs test is prepaid at our clinic for your convenience.
We are in the process of upgrading our services. Please expect more improvements to come.
