Vårdkuriren offers PCR, antigen or antibody tests for Covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2).
The PCR or antigen test will show if you are currently infected (you will receive the PCR result that same evening/night and the antigen test within 10 minutes, however the PCR test is considered more reliable). In conjunction with these tests, we can also issue a travel certificate.
Our tests meet the Swedish Public Health Agency’s safety requirements and are analyzed at one of Sweden’s top laboratories. Due to the corona pandemic and the continuous cases of covid-19 infections, a number of countries now requires you to produce a negative PCR test upon entry.
If you prefer to take an antibody test (which only reveals the presens of antibodies) it takes about 10 minutes to produce a result.

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 administered by inserting a cotton swap into your nose and scraping the inside for about 10 sec.
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.
With the PCR test you will get a result that same evening/night.
With the antigen test you will get a result within 10 min.
With the antibody test you will get a result within 10 min.
