COVID-19 PCR TESTING
PCR is currently the gold standard for the diagnosis of COVID-19 in terms of sensitivity and specificity. This test is performed by trained scientists in the laboratory setting using specialised equipment. PCR Covid testing is widely used for diagnosis, travel and hospital admissions.
PCR tests have a turnaround time of 24-hours and are available through Testaro Mobile Health, at various drive-in stations in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town or through their mobile nursing services in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and Western Cape.
Express PCR testing with a 12-hour turnaround time is available at our drive-in site at 52 Bompas Road, Dunkeld, Johannesburg before 13:00.
All international travellers arriving or departing from ports of entry must produce a negative COVID-19 test, recognized by the World Health Organisation, obtained not more than 48 or 72 hours before the date of travel.
Inception Biosciences’ test reports are fully travel complaint and contain a unique QR code which can be scanned by port authorities for verification.
