How long does it take to get a PCR result certificate?
The lab is open 24/7 and processes samples overnight and over the weekend.
We aim to get your PCR test result to you within 24 hours of arrival at the lab.*
Although the team at C19 works 7 days a week, unfortunately the same can't be said of the Royal Mail postal service, please remember that anything posted before last collection (around lunchtime) on a Saturday will not arrive until Monday and anything posted after this time at the weekend will not arrive in the lab until Tuesday.
On Bank holidays samples posted on Saturday will arrive Tuesday and samples posted after last collection Saturday will arrive Wednesday.
*Any errors on the sample label or in the paperwork submitted with your sample will delay or invalidate your sample processing. Please check your details carefully.
