Vårdkuriren offers PCR, antigen or antibody tests for Covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2).
The PCR and Antigen test shows whether you have an ongoing covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2) infection. The PCR test will provide a result in the evening/night of the same day, and the Antigen test will provide a result after about 15 min. In conjunction with these tests, we can also provide a travel certificate.
Our PCR and Antigen tests meets the requirements set by the the Swedish Public Health Agency and are analyzed at one of Sweden’s leading laboratories within this field.
The antibodies test shows if you currently have antibodies against the virus that causes covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2).

PCR stands for Polymerase Chain Reaction and is a method of analysis used to determine if you are currently infected with the Covid-19 virus. The PCR tests are analyzed at an accredited laboratory and you will receive your results that same evening/night. The test is taken by inserting a cotton swab into the nose or against the back of the throat for approximately 10 seconds.
An antigen test is a test that more quickly can determine if you are currently infected with the Covid-19 virus. The test reacts to the antigens (proteins) that your body releases in response to the virus that causes Covid-19. The test is analyzed on site and you receive your results within 10 min.
An antibody test determines if there are antibodies against the virus in your bloodstream. If your result shows that you have antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 then that is a sign that you have had Covid-19 and that your body has responded by producing antibodies. The test is analyzed on site and you receive your results within 10 min.
Everyone that’s had Covid-19 does not produce antibodies against SARS-CoV-2. The body’s immune system can respond in a number of different ways, using antibodies, t-cells or both. If your body only utilized the t-cell immune response, then it did not produce any antibodies. Getting tested for t-cells is unfortunately much more difficult and not something that we currently offer.
