PCR-test

If you want to find out if you are a carrier of Covid-19 or if you are going to travel and need a travel certificate, then PCR is probably the test you want to do.

Test that certifies freedom from infection (PCR)

För att kunna intyga att du inte är smittad med Covid-19 tas ett så kallat PCR-test.
Detta innebär att vi topsar dig i näsan och skickar testet till ett laboratorium för analys.*

Results are obtained the day after testing, provided that everything went well with your analysis. You will always be notified if something unexpected occurs.

The test does not answer whether you have had an infection before, but only if you have an ongoing infection or not.

Is the test reliable?

Vi använder samma test som svenska sjukvården använder för att identifiera pågående smitta bland sina patienter och som har använts världen över sedan utbrottet av Covid-19.
Som för samtliga test på marknaden så finns det en felmarginal. Ett test är aldrig 100% tillförlitligt.
