Frequently asked questions

Are your tests accepted everywhere?

PCR and rapid antigen tests are the most commonly required tests for travel purposes worldwide, but please always check whether your destination accepts these tests. Our tests are internationally accepted, the results incl. COVID certificate therefore can be used for travel or any other purpose.

Why is the PCR test you offer so much cheaper than with other providers?

We give our customers the possibility to choose between two different laboratories that perform the analysis: One in the EU and one in Switzerland. The scientific standards and the applied testing methodology are the same in both countries. However, due to the lower price level in the EU, we can offer the test at a favorable price.

What type of PCR test are you performing?

All of our PCR tests are RT-PCR tests, which are considered the gold standard in COVID-19 testing.

Is it legal to send my sample to the EU?

Yes, because this test is performed outside the testing strategy of Switzerland on a self-pay basis. It is up to you where you would like to have the analysis performed.
