How much does the COVID Bubble + Antibody test cost?

 

In addition to our highly accurate, gold-standard COVID Bubble PCR test we can also supply a choice of two Antibody tests delivering IgM results (in store appointments only). Choose from either:
COVID Bubble PCR test + an Intravenous blood IgM test at £300 – required for travel to China.
Or
COVID Bubble PCR test + a Lancet finger prick blood IgM test at £200.

If your destination country requires this in addition to a PCR test result book our COVID Bubble test for 1 person + Travel Certificate + IgM Antibody test at £190.

After testing, you will receive a COVID-19 travel certificate detailing the results of both tests (PCR and Antibody) - for which there is no extra charge.

Please bring your passport to the store when attending your appointment, as we will need to enter these details onto your travel certificate, and check with your airline and destination country that they will accept our travel certificate, before buying our test.

Customers requiring a travel certificate to China will be required to provide 2 forms of photo ID. One must be your passport and the other needs to be either a visa, driving licence, student card or citizenship card. All IDs must be in date and show your full name.

What happens when I take a combined test in store?

On arrival in store we'll take your temperature and take a few details before starting your test. You can be assured that we follow rigorous hygiene and cleaning protocols and use appropriate PPE at all times. Please do not attend our store if you are displaying COVID-19 symptoms. In this instance please stay at home, self isolate and contact the NHS. This is to protect our store team and customers.

PCR – COVID Bubble test:
Once in store we'll ask you for a phlegm sample – we'll ask you to spit a bit of phlegm into a sterile container in the privacy of our purpose-built COVID booth. You'll receive the results of your PCR test via email in around 90 minutes. This may take a little longer at busy periods. To check our current queue times please click here.

If you've chosen an Intravenous blood IgM test:
This antibody test requires an intravenous blood sample taken from the arm. This test is now required by the Chinese authorities for travel to China.

The test detects the presence of antibodies which your body produces in response to the virus that causes COVID-19. You'll receive the results of your Antibody test via email in around 90 minutes. This may take a little longer at busy periods. To check our current queue times please click here.

If you've chosen a Lancet finger prick blood IgM test:
This antibody test requires a finger prick to get a small sample of blood which is then dropped onto the test strip.

The test detects the presence of antibodies which your body produces in response to the virus that causes COVID-19. You'll receive the results of your Antibody test via email in around 90 minutes. This may take a little longer at busy periods. To check our current queue times please click here.

You will receive an email from us detailing the results of the 2 tests and this email forms your Travel Certificate. Please ensure that you give us a valid email address when registering in store.

DnaNudge COVID-19 testing and the NHS

Since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020 DnaNudge scientists have been working alongside NHS Doctors and Nurses to fight the coronavirus on the frontline.

Our fast, highly-accurate, lab-free test was developed rapidly in response to the crisis and now 5.8 million COVIDNudge tests are being rolled out across the NHS, provided at cost by DnaNudge in support of the UK's national efforts to defeat COVID-19.

Now, by widening access to our COVID-19 test to the general public – with a low-cost 'bubble' test designed for people who are not displaying any coronavirus symptoms – we're continuing our support for the hard-working NHS by reducing pressure on community-based testing programmes.

You can find out more about our 'pooling' testing in hospitals here.
