IN CLINIC PCR TESTING FOR TRAVEL
A number of airlines and many countries governments require travellers to produce a recent negative COVID-19 PCR test prior to travel. (NHS PCR tests cannot be used for travel purposes).
Here at Clear2Go Clinics we are able to provide a high quality HSE cleared COVID-19 testing service, In-Clinic, or in the comfort of your own home, suitable for travel purposes.
We provide testing for a range of corporate clients, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire about COVID testing for your organisation.
A PCR based COVID-19 assay is a molecular test for active infection. It detects the virus’ genetic material from a swab of the patient’s nose or throat.
These samples will be analysed by Medical Professionals, at a laboratory that has been cleared by HSE and the Government to provide COVID-19 testing. The service uses a PCR based COVID-19 assay to detect SARS-CoV-2 virus RNA targets to confirm the presence of the virus.
