At Gosforth Private Clinic, we provide a very comprehensive testing programme for individuals, businesses and organisations. You can have your Covid-19 status with our cost effective and highly accurate tests. This highly accurate PCR swab test can determine whether you have Covid-19 or not?
PCR tests are used to directly detect the presence of an antigen, rather than the presence of antibodies which indicate body’s immune response. By detecting viral RNA, which will be present in the body before antibodies form or symptoms of the disease are present, the tests can show whether or not someone has the virus very early on.
“PCR gives us a good indication of who is infected. They can be isolated and get in contact with people they have been in touch with so they can be quarantined too, That is the advantage of the current major diagnostic tests, you can break that transmission infection chain.
We are a Government approved centre for Covid-19 testing. Our laboratory partners are ISO 15189 accredited.
