You can take a test to see if you have been infected if you are experiencing any of the symptoms of COVID-19 coronavirus, if you have been in contact with someone who has been infected, or if you have recently travelled to a country where COVID-19 is prevalent.
A nasal and throat swab in the Coronavirus home collection test kit collects a sample of cells that is sent to a lab for testing. The lab uses a technique called RT-PCR to perform a highly sensitive test that looks for the virus's RNA. RT-PCR tests detect specific genetic material within the virus known as viral RNA. The tests can tell whether or not someone has the virus very early on by detecting viral RNA, which is present in the body before symptoms of the disease appear.
The collection kit will be delivered to your residence. You'll use the nasal and throat swabs and send the sample to the lab for analysis in the prepaid envelope. The results will be sent to you within 2-3 days.
You must mail your swab via priority mail before noon on the same day that the test is taken. You can find priority post boxes by entering your postcode into the Royal Mail app or website.
On a Saturday or Sunday, you should not post your results.
Once the lab receives it, the results will take 1-3 days. You will be notified as soon as the results are available. Be wary of rapid tests that promise instant results, as the UK government does not recommend them.
When the lab produces the results, you will be notified via email and SMS, and you can access them through our secure portal on our website. If you want to receive an SMS with the test results, enter your phone number on the form that comes with your test kit, and the lab will text you the results.
When our partner lab processes your test results, we provide a fit to fly certificate that you can download from your online account.
The requirements for fit-to-fly certificates differ by airline and country, and they are constantly changing in response to global events. Please check if our sample certificate meets the requirements for your journey by downloading it here. The most recent foreign travel advice can be found here.
If you need a passport or travel document number added to your Fit to Fly certificate, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject PASSPORT - CERT and a photo of your passport/travel document with the document number clearly visible, and our team will update your certificate.
These tests are, in fact, perfectly legal. These are not the same as the rapid blood Coronavirus test kits that the UK government does not recommend.
No, these tests won't tell you if you've been infected before or if you're immune right now; they'll only tell you if you're infected right now. Once you've recovered, the virus is gone, and these tests can't tell if you've been infected any longer.
All tests are run in a lab and analysed using PCR.
Please keep in mind that no test kit can be guaranteed to be 100 percent accurate, so even when used correctly, there may be instances where the test results produce a false positive or negative.
If you suspect you have a medical condition or have any questions about a medical matter, you should see your doctor or another appropriate healthcare provider.
Because of the information obtained from any test kit purchased through My London Pharmacy, you should never delay seeking medical advice, disregard medical advice, or stop medical treatment.
