Covid-19

At RMC, we offer both the diagnostics of Covid-19 infection with different tests and aftercare of post-Covid-19 syndrome.

Covid-19

We provide personal care with the highest level of safety and in adherence to the strictest standards.

The following are the most important information on coronavirus tests at RMC Clinics.


What types of Covid tests are there?

  • PCR test
  • Covid-19 antigen rapid test
  • Serology tests

 

The results of serology N-IgG and S-IgG antibody tests are accepted for immunity certificate applications: On the basis of Government Decree 60/2021 (II.12.), people who have already been infected are entitled to an immunity certificate if they provide laboratory test results demonstrating that they possess antibodies to the coronavirus.


How will you receive the results?

  • PCR and serological results will be sent directly via email from the laboratory. Results of a rapid antigen test will be provided immediately after the sample is taken.
  • The sent medical reports are created in a closed IT system, so they are authentic without a seal and signature. If you still need a certificate in Hungarian or English (eg for travel at a foreign airport), please indicate this when booking your appointment.

  • It all went smoothly. The lab informed me on the same day that my sample had arrived. I was already able to review the results by the next morning.
