Covid19 Information

What types of coronavirus tests are available in our clinic?

  • PCR test (PCR-Abstrichtest or Labortest)

This is the standard test. The test will be sent to the laboratory. It takes more time, but more reliable. It is better at detecting the virus.

  • Rapid Antigen Detection test (Schnelltest)

This test gives results in a few minutes. It is cheaper and faster, but it’s not as reliable as PCR tests. It might not detect that you are infected, especially in the first week after you were infected.

  • Antibody test (Antikörper-Test)
    This only tells you if you had coronavirus before.

When will I get my test results?

  • With a PCR test, you will get results within 48 hours. You will get a call or an e-mail from us. If your test result is positive, the laboratory is forced to inform your result to Public Health Department (Gesundheitsamt)
  • With a rapid antigen test, you will get a result in around 15-30 minutes.
