Antigen testing

Antigen testing is also known as rapid testing. These tests are offered in the majority of pharmacies and give a result in less than 60 minutes. They are offered to travelers, but also to people who need a quick confirmation for an employer or plan to visit someone at higher risk. 

*Some countries demand a PCR test. Make sure to get an appointment for the right test..

PCR test for travel

The PCR test offers a more precise result. However, the sample must be analyzed in a laboratory, which means that the result comes within 48 hours. The sampling is done directly in a pharmacy and sent to one of Biron's analysis laboratories. This service is only available for travelers.
