PCR testing looks for the genetic material of the virus in a sample taken from your nose and throat. The test looks directly for the virus, so it is the most accurate test for seeing if a person is infected with the virus at the time the test is taken.
The PCR test requires a throat and nasal swab sample to be collected and send to our UKAS registered laboratory for testing.
