What is a PCR Test?


COVID-19 testing technology has moved on fast during this period; each with their own unique use as part of a cocktail of tests to meet both screening and gold standard COVID-19 testing.

Swab & Go is part of the 15 Minute Covid Test franchise and has partnered with a UK-based laboratory with experience in the Molecular and Clinical Diagnostics field to provide highly accredited ISO:15189 credentials to bring COVID-19 testing under this accreditation; a recognised standard that the Department of Health & Social Care has stipulated is the required standard of an operating laboratory offering COVID-19 test services.

PCR tests look for the genetic code (RNA) of the virus. The test involves taking a swab of the throat and nose. The test will confirm if an individual has currently got the virus. It will not confirm whether they have had it and have now recovered.


This PCR test takes up to 24 hours once received at the lab.


This test is applicable for those that require a PCR TEST for AIR TRAVEL, WORK or similar purposes.

Please note that it is the patient responsibility to understand the requirements of the Airline or test-requiring agency with regard to timing of the swab test and thus we cannot give specific advice in this respect.

Highlights of the PCR service include:

  • Simple agreement to cover your COVID-19 test requirement

  • Provision of swab sampling kits meeting UN3373 standards

  • PCR tests are sent to a Government accredited UK based lab for analysis.

  • Trained staff to sample

  • Results in under 48hrs (from receipt of sample)

  • Fit to fly certification 


Post testing, an email will be sent to confirm the date, time & outcome of the test.


100% of payment is required in advance, if cancelled within 24 hours of appointment or a 'no show', no refund will be processed under any circumstances.
