Frequently asked questions

PCR, which stands for 'Polymerase Chain Reaction', is a diagnostic test that detects a fragment of the genetic material of a pathogen. In the coronavirus pandemic, it is being used to determine whether or not a person is infected with coronavirus. It is the most reliable test to diagnosing COVID-19 infection.

A sample is taken from the patient through a nasopharyngeal swab (swab that is inserted through the nose / mouth) by qualified health personnel.
Once the sample is obtained, it is subsequently analyzed in a laboratory equipped with specialized machinery, providing greater reliability and security in the result. After 48 hours you will be notified to collect the result. In case of requesting the test at home / Hotel, your result will be delivered personally.
