At Falireas Medical Center, coronavirus tests are performed by a privately owned equipment, using an innovative Real Time PCR method. The machine originates from Europe, has the approval of the European Union, as well as the certification by the Pasteur Institute of France. IgM / IgG Antibody Tests are also performed. 

PREPARATION:  There is absolutely no preparation required for the test.

RECOMMENDATIONS:   If you have a fever, cough or came in contact with a confirmed case, you are advised to contact our medical center first.

WHAT IS THE "REAL-TIME PCR"?   It is the most accurate method for the standardization of Coronavirus. The initials come from the words Polymerase Chain Reaction and is a method of biochemistry and molecular biology to isolate and amplify a DNA sequence. This method detects even low viral load of the SARS-COV-2 but cannot tell us if anyone had caught the disease in the past..

WHAT IS  ANTIBODIES EXAMINATION TEST (IgG & IgM)?  With these serological tests we check for antibodies to the coronavirus SARS-COV-2 by sampling the examinee's blood. The main antibodies of the human body against viruses are IgG, IgM and IgA. IgM antibodies are produced in the first 5-7 days of exposure to the virus and can be used to detect any active COVID-19 infection, while IgG antibodies appear in the blood 2-3 weeks later and indicate if someone had been infected with the virus in the past and has obtained immunity. According to the World Health Organization, serological tests are considered supplementary and not the main tests for the diagnosis of the Covid-19. Moreover, they could be chosen in cases where the performed PCR test was negative, although the examinee had strong symptoms of COVID-19 disease, or when the performed PCR test is positive but we need to know at which stage of the infection the patient is.
