Covid-19 is a new illness that affects & attacks the respiratory system. Typical symptoms include a new dry & persistent cough, loss of taste and smell and fever, though many people present with no symptoms at all. Human trials and research continue in an endeavour to find a vaccine for the disease.

What is an antigen?

An antigen is a substance that triggers your immune system into creating antibodies against it. Antigens can come in the form of chemicals, bacteria and indeed viruses, such as Covid-19. The purpose of an antigen test is to search for the nucleocapsid protein – this is the protein that is most prevalent in coronavirus.

At Bodyvie we offer 2 Antigen tests:

Antigen Rapid Result Nasal/Throat Swab Cassette (Results in 15 minutes) – £95

The nasal/throat swab is administered in-house and results are immediate. Bodyvie offers this testing for screening and to confirm ‘negative’ virus status of patients. We are not testing any symptomatic patients onsite. Should you have symptoms of Covid and require testing, please look at our home-administered and laboratory processed PCR Antigen test option below.

Benefits of Covid-19 Antigen Rapid Result Test
  • Fast turnaround time
  • Facilitates regular testing
  • Offers peace of mind in confirming negative status
  • CE Certified
World Health Organisation approved PCR antigen test in conjunction with our processing lab, The Doctors Laboratory (Results in 48 hours) – £225

The PCR nasal/throat swabs are taken using a dry swab – this is self administered by the patient at home. Testing kits are posted direct to patients, by Bodyvie, to minimise contact risk and spread of infection. Samples are returned to The Doctors Laboratory in specially packaged ‘High Risk Specimen’ Category B packaging, by the patient.

Dr Weber will instruct patients through the process and cost is inclusive of a private GP telephone consultation.

*Due to limited national availability and access to PCR tests, Bodyvie is restricting it’s testing to medically indicated cases as part of it’s private GP clinical services. Bodyvie will not be offering PCR tests for any patients requiring travel certificates who simply wish to confirm a negative status. Our aim is to assist the government in test and trace, and prioritise high risk patients with symptoms.*

Benefits of Covid-19 Antigen Laboratory Test
  • Nasal/throat swab
  • Safe testing in your own home
  • High accuracy – the assays used by TDL show a minimum sensitivity of 98% and a specificity of 100%, with no cross-reactivity with other viruses
  • Fast access to testing for high risk categories

When should you test?

Samples should be taken from symptomatic patients between days 1-5 from onset of symptoms. Please factor in postal time and processing time. The Doctors Laboratory are working to provide results within 48 hours, however this might vary depending on their load.
