COVID19 PCR Test in Glasgow

Coronavirus - Private COVID19 swab test at GP Matters for £140

Next day results

A COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test checks to see if the COVID-19 virus is currently in your body. It works by detecting the genetic material in the virus called RNA. When your swab sample reaches the lab, a solution known as a ‘reagent’ is added to it. If the virus is in the sample, the reagent starts a ‘chain reaction’. This reaction creates billions of copies of the viral genetic material, so there’s enough for it to be detected and analysed by scientists.

The results are available the next day.

Whilst every effort will be made, unfortunately we cannot offer a guarantee that the results will be back by a specific time, as the lab is a 3rd party business and we have no control over their schedule.

Having said that, so far this year our Lab has always been able to provide us with the results the next day. 100% success rate.

We will email your Covid PCR results together with the fit to travel certificate.

Up to date guidance can be found for each destination, including entry requirements by visiting

We use TDL (The London Laboratory).
This lab process is accredited by UKAS and is ISO 17025 compliant.

PCR Test Glasgow

On very rare occasions, a person’s swab will come back with a result as INVALID. This can happen if there is not enough moisture in the throat or nasal cavities and therefore not enough viral DNA is collected to enable a successful test.

Please be aware that if this happens, there will not be enough time to carry out a second swab and you will not have a result to enable you to travel.
