What is a PCR test?

A polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a technique used to detect genetic material of coronavirus and other viruses. At Klarity we use the latest PCR techniques to look for all current strains of the virus. We use a swab stick method so you can collect your sample from both of your nostrils.

Can I take this the PCR test at home?

You can take the Klarity PCR test in the comfort of your home or accommodation with the help of a medical practitioner via our online video conference service which you can use from your mobile device, laptop, desktop computer, etc. You will then need to send the sample via post using our pre-paid postal box that you would have received in the box to our laboratory. We will take 24 to 48 hours to email you your results and valid certificate.

Do I need to take a PCR test to leave the UK?

For some countries yes, however, not all countries require you to take a PCR test within 72 hours of travel. We ask you to please check the government website to ensure you order the correct tests.

Why do I need a PCR test for Day 2?

A Day 2 test is the minimum requirement that is needed once you have returned back from a Green List country. From the 19th July those travelling back from an amber list country and were double vaccinated are now needing only a Day 2 test and don’t need to quarantine.

A Day 2 test is a PCR test as this allows for your sample to be genome sequenced. This procedure is important to test for different variants.

When should I purchase my Day 2 test?

You should purchase your Day 2 test before you travel back to UK, as you will need to add the booking reference number on your passenger locator form before you return back to the UK. After you have purchased this test, we will send you the booking reference number that you need.

Do I need a PCR test or Rapid Antigen Test for Test to Release?

The Test to Release scheme allows you to shorten your 10-day quarantine when returning back to the UK from an amber listed country. You will need to take a PCR test on Day 5 and once you have received a negative result, you are allowed to end quarantine early. Even if you choose to do test to release, you’ll still need to take your Day 8 test, which is also a PCR test.

How long does it take to get my results from a PCR test?

Once you have taken your swab sample and sent it off using a royal mail postal box this can take up to 24 hours to arrive at our lab. When your test kit has arrived at our lab it can take up to 24 hours to analyse and process your results. After this has been completed, we will send you your test certificate via email and upload it to your Klarity app.
