Private COVID-19 Testing (PCR & Antigen)

CLS’ COVID-19 private testing service is designed to support proactive screening for COVID-19 and is relevant to all sectors including those that require employees onsite throughout government restrictions.

Real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) testing is widely recognised as the global ‘gold standard’ for detecting COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2 infection) and has been approved by public health authorities in Ireland. CLS are amongst a limited number of Irish laboratories to supply this type of test.

The service is tailored to client requirements and can include swabbing taking place on a weekly basis at a clients site, with tests analysed at CLS laboratories and results available in 24 hours.

Any positive tests are reviewed by the CLS clinical consultants and shared with the GP of the person swabbed, with the patient’s GP alerted immediately as well as the local HSE Public Health Department. Participants can also be provided with certification for travel purposes within a three-day timeframe of test taking place.

CLS provide EU Digital COVID Certificate for travel requirements for clients and private individuals. Once a negative test result is confirmed a certificate will be provided on request.


COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Testing

Our accredited antigen testing kit is approved by the European Union and can be facilitated at client sites. The antigen test is a seamless process, with results given in 20 minutes.

In the event of a positive test being detected, our team would follow it up with a PCR test, if the test is confirmed as positive our medical professionals follow through the Ireland’s test and tracing reporting protocol process.

We can also provide antigen testing kits for clients with medical expertise to carry out their own swabbing
