COVID-19 PCR Molecular Coronavirus Test

The COVID-19 PCR Molecular Corona Virus Test is the test for detecting active infection with the COVID-19 coronavirus virus. It is a direct test and detects the virus itself during the period of infection, from the 5th day after the first contact, until the 30th day approximately, which is also considered the healing time.

With data showing that the infection can be asymptomatic up to 80%, the use of the test is mainly for preventive purposes, and secondary for diagnostic purposes.

As a prevention test * used in asymptomatic for:

  1. prophylaxis of familiar persons
  2. scheduled hospitalization or special medical examination
  3. safe gathering of large groups of people ( camps )
  4. issuance of a relevant travel document

* It is necessary to calculate the time of 5 days required after possible contact with the virus, for the possibility of effective detection of the virus. For example, a newcomer to the country from abroad - without symptoms - should be tested after a five-day quarantine, so that the period of travel is included as a detection time.

As a diagnostic test , it is used to evaluate symptoms

  1. cold ( fever - cough - sniffles )
  2. sudden cachexia
  3. secondary infection syndromes such as diarrhoea - loss of smell - taste
  1. No kind of preparation is required
  2. Sampling is done by simply taking throat fluid using a special cotton swab, in a bloodless - and non-disruptive - way.
  3. A telephone appointment is required for the preparation of the space and the staff - It is not possible by simply coming to the laboratory
  4. Appointments take place between 11:00 -13:00 on weekdays
  5. As a precautionary measure, in non-infected persons, a minute sample is taken in a specially designed area of the laboratory
  6. For diagnostic purposes in people with symptoms, exclusively at home in well-ventilated - outdoor areas

Result: within 24 hours of receiving the sample

Private cost of single unit analysis (COVID-19 PCR COVID-19 PCR Molecular Test of Corona Virus) is 50 euros.

In a family package, for the second and each additional member, at 45 euros

The test is NOT prescribed to the EOPYY

IMPORTANT NOTE

The Laboratory performs a unitary analysis (each sample is analysed separately) and not with the "pooling" technique (e.g. 5 samples are pooled together in one sample to perform one analysis only and give 5 results) .

For "pooling" there are no certified diagnostic methodologies, and there is always the risk of

  1. false negative result, especially in cases of low viral load
  2. false positive from contamination due to incorrect handling
