What is a Rapid Anitgen Test?

A Rapid Antigen test, also known as a Lateral Flow test is a nose swab sample that tests for viral surface proteins of the COVID-19 virus. It will not confirm whether you have had COVID-19 but will confirm if you currently have the COVID-19 virus or not therefore is best suited as a test to identify those who are currently infectious and most likely to spread the virus further.

A Rapid Antigen test is a faster and cheaper alternative to a PCR test, while still maintaining high accuracy when carried out by trained health care professionals.

How Does It Work?

A Rapid Antigen test requires a small sample to be collected from your nose; that is where the virus is most likely to be present. It is then tested within our clinic who check the sample for the presence of COVID-19.

Can I Travel With A Rapid Antigen Fit-to-Fly Certificate?

A fit-to-fly certificate is an issued document which validates your negative COVID-19 test result, to enable you to board your flight or transportation, and enter your destination.

At present, some airlines and destinations accept Rapid Antigen tests and certificates to satisfy entry requirements, please be sure to check with your destination before ordering this test.

In the circumstances this test type is suitable for your travel requirements, we can test you for COVID-19 and issue a certificate in time for your flight or journey.

Our turnaround times vary based on your chosen test package.

Please note that result turnarounds may vary by clinic location and their opening hours, so kindly refer to the times stated on your chosen location booking page or confirmation email:

Travel regulations are subject to change. You should keep up to date with the Government’s advice about travel and find out about your destination’s requirements, including any countries you are passing through if you have a flight transfer.

Please refer to travel guidelines on the website and the relevant authorities of your destination if you are unsure of their requirements.

Covid Testing FAQs

There are three possible outcomes for your COVID-19 test.

  • Negative – Your coronavirus (COVID-19) test result is negative. You likely did not have the virus when the test was done.
  • Positive – Your coronavirus test result is positive. This means that you probably have the virus.
  • Unclear – Your coronavirus test result is unclear. It is not possible to say if you had the virus when the test was done.

For more information on the result possibilities for your test, please see our information page on your possible results here.

PCR test: PCR testing is considered the “gold standard” in SARS-CoV-2 detection. This test actually detects RNA (or genetic material) that is specific to the virus and can detect the virus within days of infection, even those who have no symptoms. The test can be done at any of our centre locations. Turnaround time varies from 2-3 days range to as little as 24 hours. All of our centres offer same day tests as well as options for those that have a little more time on their hands.

Antigen Test (frequently referred to as a rapid test): This test detects protein fragments specific to the Coronavirus. Turnaround time for results is usually very quick and, in some cases, results can be reported within 15 minutes.
