Anyone, of legal age, can schedule a diagnostic test to detect the genetic material of SARS-Cov-2 Virus that causes the COVID-19 disease. The diagnosis is made using the PCR technique (Polymerase Chain Reaction), with swab collection, which is the most sensitive and reliable technique.
Please note that, for many applications (eg., plain travel, medica procedures, etc.), the test may have a maximum validity of 72 hours. You should schedule your test for a date that ensures that it is valid for the intended purpose.
Booking is done directly by the user, who can choose schedule of their choice, at the most convenient time to be tested.
