The test requires taking a swab from the throat and nose, this sample will then be sent to laboratory for analysis using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
It takes 24-48 hours to return the result once the laboratory receives the sample back. This result will be used to form the certification that you require to travel and will be sent to you via email. Please note result reporting times can be up to midnight the next working day.
Reporting times may differ over weekends and bank holidays.
Screen4 will provide you with a 24 hour tracked returns envelope to ensure your sample gets to the lab on time.
