SWAB TEST

How the swab test is done


The PCR swab test is done by a medical professional at the practice. You can book an appointment slot online at our practice in Marlow. You make payment for the test at the same time as booking your slot. On arrival to your appointment, please enter via the side entrance to the right side of the building. Please DO NOT use the main entrance for this test. Once the swab test has been done, we ask you to wait outside the practice, so you may prefer to attend in your car, so you can wait there.
You MUST bring a photo ID with you to confirm your identity and face covering is mandatory. Results from the test will be available within an hour in a paper version and by email.




What will the test show ?


This test shows if you have the active virus and can be used between day 1-5 from onset of symptoms (preferably Day 3)




How accurate is it?


This method has sensitivity of 97.6% and Specificity of 100% Limit of detection (per test) 188 virus particles. This test is CE marked and uses the same technology in previous PHE passed equipment, Assays for SARS-CoV-2 are no longer required by PHE. Not UKAS accredited, as this only applies to the laboratory. There may be false negatives for any viral assay at the very low end of viral load if there is not enough virus to detect. As these are on the borderline they can result as a low positive or not detected at any time. This is usual for any viral PCR




How long does it take for the results?


Results will be available after 1 hour. In the very unlikely circumstance of an invalid test result, your swab will be re-taken and re-run in the next available time slot free of charge.
