Covid-19 Surface Testing | Environmental Swabbing | Small Area
£99.99 Inc VAT (£83.33 Ex VAT)
This laboratory surface swab test has been designed to check if SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) is present on a surface – ideal for testing in a home or small office*.
Checking of surfaces for Covid-19 during an outbreak can be easier and cheaper than testing individuals. Regular testing of surfaces for SARS-CoV-2 – generally or during an outbreak – ensures that cleaning and sanitising has been adhered to.
Arranging a laboratory test is very easy and our service includes everything required to carry out the analysis. Once you have ordered on our website, we will send you a kit, which includes a swab, clear instructions as well as pre-paid postage label and postage box to return the sample for laboratory analysis. Results will be available within 24 to 48 hours of receipt of the swab.
- Certified laboratory results in 5 easy steps
- Simply take a swab of the surface area you want to test and post it to our UKAS accredited laboratory for expert analysis
- Results available within within 24-48hrs of receipt in the lab
- Ideal for home or small office

Contamination of surface areas can not always be detected by smell or sight. Especially during or after an outbreak, surface area swabbing can be a fast and efficient way to check for viruses.
Suitable for: Surface area of maximum A4 size, this can be a single location or cumulative area of multiple locations. Including desks, door handles, cabinets, tables, walls, machinery, equipment and floors. A sterile swab is rubbed over the surface to collect viable samples of viruses present.

- Clear step-by-step instructions on how to collect the sample,
- Sterile swab for an area of maximum A4 size,
- Latex gloves,

The sterile swab is rubbed over the surface to collect viable samples of microorganisms present. This can be a single location or cumulative area of multiple locations (total area of A4 size).

- If you are planning to have more than 1 sample analysed, then all samples need to be taken and shipped to us for analysis at the same time. If you are planning on taking the samples at different times and/or places, then please place separate orders so that we can supply the correct amount of insulated packaging and pre-paid postage labels.
- This product might require insulated packaging to preserve the sample, the insulated packaging is therefore mandatory. Where the insulated packaging includes ice-packs then these need to be frozen the day before the sample is taken and shipped to us with the sample.
