INDEPENDENTLY WITNESSED

 Verified by Video


To help ensure that your certificate will be accepted, Cellmark:

  •  Provides a Gold Standard RT-qPCR test
  •  Is a UK Government approved testing laboratory

​In addition, our Verified by Video Service provides:

  •  Independently witnessed sampling, which is written on the report

Not all countries have the same travel certificate requirements and requirements may change as the pandemic evolves.  Cellmark’s Verified by Video service provides additional reassurance that, because your identification was independently checked when your sample was taken, your certificate is more likely to be accepted during your travels.

COVID-19 PCR Testing

SENSITIVE PCR TESTING

Gold Standard Testing


Cellmark provides a RT-qPCR (Reverse Transcription quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction) COVID-19 test.  This is the gold-standard laboratory test for COVID-19 and is the requirement for entry into many overseas countries.

PCR testing is the most sensitive way to test for COVID-19.  It is able to detect a coronavirus infection several days before an individual is thought to be infectious and will detect the virus if the individual is infected but doesn’t have any symptoms.

RAPID RESULTS DELIVERY

A Reliable Service


We provide a 12-24hr service, depending on the time of arrival of the samples at our laboratory, with the majority of results reported on the day of receipt if the samples arrive with us before 11.00am. Testing capacity at both our Abingdon (Oxfordshire) and Chorley (Lancashire) laboratories helps us to deliver service excellence to our customers across the UK.

We know that having to arrange a test so close to departure can be a stressful time and so choosing a laboratory with a reliable record for service delivery is important.

COVID-19 Fit to Fly Testing Services

Meeting International Requirements


Cellmark’s COVID-19 PCR testing service is accredited to the international quality standard ISO 17025 by the UK Accreditation Service (UKAS). Our COVID-19 service was first approved by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) in June 2020 and Cellmark is listed on the UK Government’s list of approved private COVID-19 testing laboratories for general testing (as well as for the provision of Test to Release day 5 testing).

Fit to Fly International Travel Testing

Cellmark has provided Fit to Fly results for thousands of travellers.  However, different countries have different travel certificate requirements which may change as the pandemic evolves.  It is the traveller’s responsibility to confirm that the type and timing of any COVID-19 test they take meets the requirements of the authorities in their destination country.  The latest travel information and requirements can be found on the gov.uk site here.
