The laboratory we use here at Pure Testing is accredited by UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) to ISO17025.

UKAS is currently the only UK Government-recognised and backed national accreditation body. Our laboratory is one of the few that has been given this special accreditation and approval by UKAS for Covid-19 testing.

At the time when you are given your test results, you will also be given the laboratory report if required.

It is important that you check directly with the airline you are flying with how many hours before your flight you should be tested. All airlines & countries have different guidelines and requirements regarding this. More information about the destination you are travelling to can be found at https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice

Both the Antigen Test and the PCR Test are used to determine whether you currently have the Covid-19 virus present in your body. The PCR Test is the most accurate, with an accuracy rating of 99%, but can take 1 or 2 days for results, depending on which service you choose. Whereas the Antigen Test has an accuracy rating of around 93.8%, but the results of this test can be delivered by 10pm the very same day you take the test. Most countries require more than just an Antigen Test negative result if you are planning on air travel.

It is very quick and simple to book a test at one of our Pure Testing test centres using our online booking system. You can pick a timeslot and day that suits you and you are free to cancel your appointment for free up to 48 hours before.

When booking for a relative or friend – We really want to encourage you to take the opportunity to book a test for your friends and family members. It is important to note, however, that when they attend their appointment, they need to bring along some form of valid photographic ID as proof of their identity.

Obviously, the more people that get tested for Covid-19, the quicker the country, and by extension, the world, can recover from this pandemic.
