 What is stated on the travel certificate?

What is stated on each certificate varies.

 

1.          PCR test: name, date of birth, sex, document number, method of test taking, date/time of test taking, date of result, type of test, details of the laboratory, name and signature of our medical director.

2.          Antigen Rapid Test: name, date of birth, sex, document number, date/time of test administration, test result, type of test, name and signature of our medical director.

3.          Antibody test: name, date of birth, sex, document number, test result, date/time of test taking, test result, type of test, name and signature of our medical director.

 What is the sensitivity/reliability of the antigen rapid test?

We use the Abbott Panbio- Covid-19-Ag Rapid Test. The manufacturer reports a sensitivity of 98.1% and a specificity of 99.8%. These are mentioned on the certificate.

 Which tests does Test2Fly take?

1.          PCR test: PCR stands for Polymerase Chain Reaction. With a throat and nose swab, the PCR shows pieces of genetic material of the coronavirus in the swab of your throat and nose. In a laboratory, the pieces of genetic material found are copied and strongly multiplied. This multiplication gives a high test sensitivity.

2.          Antigen Rapid Test: Using a throat and nose swab, the antigen rapid test shows within 30 minutes whether the swab taken from your nose contains antigens of the coronavirus. Antigens are proteins that are on the outside of the coronavirus. If the test is positive, we know for sure that you are carrying corona in your nose and that you may be contagious. If the test is negative, you are probably not contagious, but because very small amounts of virus can be missed, we cannot rule it out.

3.          Antibody test: An antibody test shows if you have been in contact with SARS-CoV-2. With a small drop of blood from the fingertip, antibodies are detected. These antibodies cause the immune system to react quickly to a new infection, so that you will not (almost) get sick the second time. The sicker you have been during a first infection, the more antibodies you have built up. This also means that you have become more immune. The test does not tell you whether you are infected with the coronavirus at the time of testing. You should preferably be tested at least 4 weeks after (suspected) exposure to the virus. Our antibody test is CE marked.

 

The result comes with a certificate in English. It is your own responsibility to check whether the country of destination accepts this test.

 Is an antigen rapid test reliable?

Yes, the antigen rapid test is reliable. This applies to the CE-marked rapid tests which have been approved by the RIVM. It is true that if you test negative you are probably not contagious, but it cannot be ruled out with 100% certainty.

 Is your PCR test an RT-PCR?

Yes, all PCR tests for the coronavirus are RT-PCRs. RT stands for Reversed Transcription. Because a PCR requires double-stranded genetic material and the coronavirus is an RNA virus, the single-stranded RNA must first be converted into double-stranded material. This process is called Reversed Transcription.

 What is a NAAT test?

NAAT stands for nucleic acid ampliciation test. Our PCR test is an example of this. NAAT is a collective name for several tests that are approved for entry and exit in various countries. You can book various PCR tests with us - there is always a suitable solution.

 What happens with positive test results?

SARS-CoV-2 falls under the duty to report infectious diseases according to the Public Health Act (Wpg). We are obliged to report positive results to your local GGD and may not do so anonymously. After reporting, the GGD may contact you for a source and contact investigation. The infectious disease doctor at the GGD will assess the risk of infection and whether any measures are required, such as isolation and quarantine. Always follow the guidelines of the RIVM.

 Can children be tested as well?

Yes, we test people of all ages. If you are bringing a child under 12 months, please call or email us in advance so that one of our doctors is informed and an extra experienced staff member will be on site.

 When do I have to pay for the test?

You pay for the test directly when booking the appointment via iDeal or Credit Card.

 

For companies with multiple employees it is possible to do this on invoice. For more information you can call us (+31621421803) or send us an e-mail (info@test2fly.amsterdam).
