Type of test:

At our drive-thru points, we perform genetic tests using the RT-qPCR method (swab from the throat and nose or nasopharynx). Thanks to this method, we are able to verify whether the SARS-CoV-2 virus is present in the patient’s organism at the moment.

You can also fill in the form at the test point – it will be handed over to you by the service.

 

How is the swab taken?

After approaching/driving to the indicated place, the point employee wearing protective coveralls will ask you to disinfect your hands, conduct a short interview necessary to complete the medical documentation, and ask you to remove the mask. Then, with a swab (a dedicated device), he will take a swab from the throat and nose by rubbing it against its walls for a few seconds. The swab after taking will be secured in an intended container and handed over to the laboratory.

 

Contraindications for swab taking:

Relative contraindications include recent craniofacial trauma or anatomical anomalies, and severe hemorrhagic diathesis – they may make swab insertion difficult or increase the risk of local trauma and bleeding. Complications are a consequence of local tissue trauma (bleeding, pain or discomfort). The procedure may provoke coughing and sneezing, and sometimes vomiting (irritation of the back of the throat).

 

Please notice

  • When entering the drive-thru point, put on a mask. Take it off only at the request of our employee, directly before taking the swab.
  • In Łukasiewicz – PORT (entry from Pracka Street), go to drive-thru point according to the recommendations of the map 
    and signposts.
  • At Wrocław Airport (ul. Graniczna 190), go to car park B (the entrance to the car park is in front of the main parking barriers). The test persons will not be charged the parking fee. Tickets are validated at the drive-thru point.
  • If you notice that there is another patient within the collection point, keep a safe distance – a minimum of 2 m.
  • After taking swab, leave the drive-thru as soon as possible. Follow the marked road.
  • After leaving the point, go straight home. Do not put others at risk of infection. We will provide you with the test result as soon as possible.

 

How and when will I get the result

  • The test result will be issued depending on the laboratory workload, but not longer than 36 hours from the transfer of the sample to the laboratory.
  • The results can be picked up on a dedicated platform. Each time after the examination, you will receive a leaflet with information on the method of collection.

 

What test result can I get?

For the interpretation of test results, we use the recommendations of the National Institute of Public Health – PZH
in the field of SARS molecular diagnostics.

Result types:

  • Positive result – when the presence of the genetic material of the virus in the sample taken from the patient is confirmed.
  • Negative result – when the genetic material of the virus is not detected.
  • Inconclusive result – when a trace amount of virus genetic material is detected, from which it is not possible to correctly determine whether the result is positive or negative. In such cases, it is suggested to re-collect the swab and perform test after 24-48 hours (at the patient’s request, paid service).
  • Undiagnostic result – the reaction of detecting the genetic material of the virus was conducted in a way that did not allow the laboratory to determine whether the obtained result is consistent with the actual state. In such cases, it is suggested to re-take the swab and perform the test (at the patient’s request, paid service).

The full description of the results is available on the NIZP-PZH  website.
