WE TEST COVID-19 - companies, the public, self-payers

If you are interested in a PCR test or measuring the level of antibodies to COVID-19 by taking venous blood, we will be happy to provide you with our diagnostic services. In addition, we can offer doctors IVD rapid tests.

RT PCR method

Our laboratory tests by RT PCR from samples from the upper respiratory tract obtained by nasopharyngeal swabs. This method detects the genetic material of the SARS-Cov-2 virus. We are able to detect the presence of the virus even in patients who have not yet developed any symptoms. Based on the result, we will issue the confirmation you need, for example, to return from abroad.

We perform sampling in cooperation with the Fakultní nemocnicí Královské Vinohrady in sampling tents. You can book an appointment HERE. For more information and orders, call 800 225 229 or e-mail us at testy@scimed.cz.

What does the test reveal?

  • The current infection is detected by the presence of IgA (5th day after infection) or IgM (8th day after infection) antibodies.
  • The presence of IgG antibodies indicates a previous infection

If antibodies are detected, we recommend contacting a general practitioner. The antibody test is for self-payers only.

When to get tested?

The test can be performed at any time except when the patient has symptoms (eg fever, flu syndrome, cough, wheezing, etc.). In this case, PCR testing is appropriate and we recommend that you consult your doctor.

Where to get tested?

You can have it collected at any collection center, provided that it must be whole blood (red test tube without anticoagulants) and transported back to the Scimed laboratory at:: Šrobárova 50, Praha 10, Areál FNKV (pavilon K, 2. patro).

Alternatively, for a fee directly at the University Hospital Královské Vinohrady, after paying the fee for collection at the main gatehouse (department for foreigners and self-payers). Then, with a confirmation of payment, you will arrive at COM (pavilion K), where you will have a blood sample, and with your blood you will only go up the stairs to the 2nd floor, where you will ring the Scimed laboratory.

How do I know the results of the examination?

The result of the examination will be communicated to you by email by a responsible laboratory employee. If the result of the antibody test is positive, contact your GP, who will inform you of the next steps.

Antibodies test

Want to know if you have had a coronavirus? A test based on measuring the presence of IgA, IgM and IgG antibodies in your blood will help you find out if you have come into contact with the virus in the past, or if you are currently having an infection. This infection may have occurred without any symptoms or with mild symptoms that you may not have considered significant. If you have symptoms, it is better to test by RT PCR.

If you are interested in testing, call our info line 800 225 229 or write to testy@scimed.cz.
