What is the COVID-19 test at Source BioScience?

The COVID-19 antigen test relies on RT-PCR detection of the Coronavirus genome from oral and nasal swabs which detects the SARS-CoV-2 ORF1ab and N genes.

Who can use the COVID-19 testing service?

Working with us on a regular short or long term testing program of self-isolating, symptomatic or asymptomatic employees, can help make your business COVID-secure by helping to protect your workforce, reassure customers and offer piece of mind.

How does the testing service work?

We will despatch your testing kit on our next day delivery service and arrange collection of your testing kit.

Once the swabs are received by our laboratory staff where receipt of the sample is recorded on to our laboratory information tracking system (LIMS) the samples are handled in an appropriate safety cabinet, where they are unpacked, and the sample treated to inactivate any live virus.

The sample is then processed using an automated extraction platform to isolate any RNA from the SARS-Cov-2 virus and a reverse-transcription, real-time PCR assay is then used to detect the presence of the viral RNA genome.

Results are then released to our secure online portal to be downloaded. Download our step by step preparation guidelines here.

How much does the test cost?

The test costs £90.00 per person.

How long will it take to get my results?

We will dispatch your testing kit on our next day courier service and once we have received your completed test, results will be returned on our secure online portal within 24 hours from sample receipt
