THREE TYPES OF COVID-19 TESTS AT ACIBADEM SISTINA, PACKAGE OF TWO TESTS FOR 4,000 MKD
Acibadem Sistina is the only hospital in Macedonia that performs three types of COVID-19 tests.
Its most modern laboratory that operates according to world-renowned standards and by all safety protocols, performs a PCR molecular test that detects the presence of Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), a rapid molecular test for detecting SARS-CoV-2 virus obtained in just 60 minutes, and a rapid test – rapid serological test to detect the presence of antibodies to the virus.
To meet the patients’ needs in specific conditions and making efforts to contribute to the public health, Acibadem Sistina provides a package that includes two tests – a PCR molecular test for detecting the viral presence and a rapid serological test for detecting the antibodies (IgM and IgG) at single and competitive price of 4,000 denars.
Simultaneous testing is the only way to find out the real status of each person individually – prior exposure to the virus or possible presence at the moment. Thus the actual number of patients with Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) infection is revealed.
A rapid molecular test (PCR) gives results of the viral presence in just 60 minutes. The test is performed using a swab and it detects the presence of Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). The test costs 6,000 denars.
A PCR molecular test is performed using swab and following the sample processing, there is confirmation whether the patient has the viral presence or whether he/she is positive for COVID-19. The test costs 3,600 denars.
A rapid test means a rapid serological test for detection of IgM and IgG antibodies as a result of previous exposure to the Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). The test is performed by drawing a blood sample. It costs 1,200 denars.
