Coronavirus Test

The test determines whether a person is infected with SARS-CoV-2 at the time of swab collection. A combined nose-and-throat (nasopharyngeal) swab is examined for viral RNA by real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Smallest amounts of the virus can be detected, and an infection can be diagnosed at an early stage.

  • Test for active infection with SARS-CoV-2
  • Price EUR 65,- per sample (self-pay, not covered by medical insurance)
  • Required sample material: Nasopharyngeal swab.
  • CeGaT carries out the swab collection on its property in Tübingen from October 1: Mon-Fri 1.00 p.m. to 5 p.m., Sat 9.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. Registration is neither necessary nor possible.
