What is a PCR test?

The Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is a method to explicitly multiply one or more parts from a minimal collection of DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid) until there are enough to analyze the DNA. The PCR test is used worldwide to show whether someone is infected with the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). The material is examined in a RIVM-certified laboratory. This results in a negative or positive test result.

Why a PCR test?

The PCR has a high sensitivity. The PCR can detect the coronavirus with minimal amounts of NRA. There is a good chance that a positive result will arise in a person infected with corona. This is why the PCR is considered the most reliable test worldwide.

How is a PCR test taken for you?

Our certified COVID-19 testers always ask about the nature of your complaints and are happy to help you.

1
Testlocation

You will arrive at the agreed time, protected with a mouth cap. You show your ID and are then escorted to a seat where the tester asks you to remove your mouth cap from your nose.

2
cotton swab

The tester will prepare the test and will then insert a cotton swab into your nose for 3 seconds. Then another cotton swab is placed in your pharynx, after which it is removed.

3
The result

The PCR test is sent to a RIVM approved laboratory. At most locations you will receive the test result the same day if you have the test taken before 11:00 and in Amsterdam before 10:00. Important! Read the condition carefully when booking an appointment.

4
Tested positive?

You will receive the test result by email in a secure environment. Have you tested positive? Then the GGD urgently requests that you go into isolation and keep your distance from your housemates.

    You can change appointments by sending an email to info@speedcovidtest.nl. Appointments can be changed no later than 3 hours before the original reservation time. Unfortunately, it is not possible to change an appointment within 3 hours.

  • Do I also receive a travel certificate with an antigen test?

  • Is the PCR Saliva Test Reliable?
    The regular PCR test is the gold standard worldwide. The examination of the sample when taking the PCR Saliva test is done in the same way as with the regular PCR test. For this, Speed ​​Covid Test works together with laboratories Pro Health and TLR International Laboratories. The PCR saliva test is a test approved by the RIVM. Important! In case you want to travel, you should check yourself whether a country accepts the PCR Saliva test. Regulations concern the type of test and travel changes regularly.
  • I must be tested 24/48/72 hours before flight, is this from receipt or result?
    The time starts from DECREASE. So keep in mind that if you have to be tested 24 hours in advance, you pay attention to the time of purchase. If this does not work with a PCR test, you can also order an emergency PCR from us, which will give you the results within 3 hours.
  • How does the Rush PCR work?
    Our urgent PCR is analyzed in our own laboratory, a “run” takes 1.5 hours, but to prevent any re-analysis and to give the logistics service some space, we give the margin of 4 hours. It is also possible that due to delays and an analysis that takes a little longer than usual, it can take a little longer than 3 hours, but if this is the case we will always keep you informed.
