Coronavirus antibody and swab testing service

We offer 2 types of coronavirus tests : an antibody test that checks if you’ve been infected in the past and a PCR swab test that checks if you’re infected with coronavirus right now.

Prices from £75.00

Take a sample at home with an easy to use testing pack, send it to our partner lab, and get results and medical advice within 2 days. How to Order

You may only order one coronavirus test per patient to protect your privacy. This is because all results will be sent securely to your account, and we can not share a patient's result with anyone that isn't the patient themself. If someone else in your household also requires a test, they will need to create an account to place an order.

  • The contents of the home sample collection pack sent to you are CE-marked, meaning they conform to European standards
  • The sample you collect is tested by our partner laboratory, The Doctors Laboratory (TDL)
  • TDL provides UK-accredited pathology services worldwide and is the largest independent provider of clinical laboratory diagnostic services in the UK

MOST SPECIFIC TESTS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE

The antibody test will only ever show a positive result for a coronavirus infection, which means that anyone who tests positive has definitely had COVID-19. It would not give a positive result if you’d had other viral infections, like flu.

The PCR swab test picks up at least 98% of positive cases and 100% of negative cases. It should only be used when you have coronavirus symptoms and is most effective if used within the first 5 days of having symptoms.

The Doctors Laboratory (TDL) that we are working with is currently reporting a sensitivity of 97.5% and specificity of 100% for the home sampling test using a capillary sample. The responsibility for the accuracy of the results is provided by the laboratory. More info can be found on the TDL website.

We’re offering 20% off both coronavirus tests to all essential workers, including those in sectors where there is currently less access to testing such as logistics and food production. Message us on hello@zavamed.com with any proof of employment that shows you're an essential worker and we'll send you a discount code to use at checkout.

Which test is right for me?

There are currently two coronavirus (COVID-19) tests available. The PCR swab test, which will tell you if you are currently infected with COVID-19. And the antibody test, which will tell you if you have been infected in the past.

You can only order a coronavirus test for yourself. Each person that would like to test will need to register and order separately. Due to our testing policy, you must be over 18 to order a coronavirus test.

Take the antibody test if:

  • You want to know if you have had the virus in the past
  • You had symptoms of the virus over 14 days ago but did not have a PCR swab test to confirm if you had the virus
  • You do not need to know if you currently have the virus

Take the PCR swab test if:

  • You need to know if you have coronavirus at the moment
  • You need to know if you are infectious or not
  • You currently have coronavirus symptoms
  • You want to let your household members know if they need to self-isolate
  • You have symptoms not usually associated with coronavirus but want to know if it is the virus
  • You have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus, have since developed symptoms, and want to know if you have it at the moment
