Antigen tests are helpful in screening for mild, asymptomatic or acute patients for the identification of a Covid-19 infection. You can use this test to confirm whether you have Covid-19 and will be given a doctor-signed certificate confirming your results. If you want to use this test for travel, we recommend buying the Antigen Fit to Fly test instead, by clicking here.
We use Hughes SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test by Acon Biotech (Hangzhou) Co.
Yes, children of any age can take an antigen test but we require children under the age of 18 to have parental consent. Please check your point of destination as different countries have different requirements for children.
You can book an Antigen test online for any of our nationwide clinics. At each clinic we have healthcare professionals who administer your tests. Alternatively, you can have a test delivered to your home using our home testing service.
Your test results will be sent to you securely by text and email including a PDF you can download. Your certificate will show your full name, date of birth, passport number (optional), date and time of test, and issue date. It will also be signed by our Medical Director, Dr. Jeremy Harris GMC: 3076541.
You must bring your booking confirmation email with you when you come for your test - you can show this on your phone. Please also bring your valid Passport or ID and make sure your name that you give us matches this document, as this will be on your certificate. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
We’re a leading UK government recognised provider of all private Covid-19 tests. Our tests are analysed at UKAS accredited labs that comply with ISO15189 and ISO17025 standards.
A nose swab sample is taken by one of our healthcare professionals at one of nationwide clinics or at home by yourself, depending on whether you choose to get tested at home or in clinic.
Negative: You do not have any evidence of an active Covid-19 infection.
Positive: The virus that causes Covid-19 has been detected on your swab. As of 18 March, the UK no longer requires quarantine after a positive Covid-19 result. Note, most destination countries will still require a negative test result to fly.
Unclear: On rare occasions, it might not be possible to say if you had the virus when your test was done. In the event of this happening please contact us, quote your order number and we will arrange a retest.
Antigen test results are delivered within three hours of when you submit your results, between 8am and 8pm GMT. Any results submitted after 5pm GMT may not be published until the next day. All test samples are analysed 7 days a week, and you'll get your results as soon as they're released.
