Euromedica General Clinic of Dodecanese with the aim of protecting health against the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has been properly equipped since the beginning of the pandemic, offering comprehensive and reliable services in dealing with the pandemic, along with a high level of services.
The Clinic has state-of-the-art facilities, with a Molecular Laboratory specially equipped to perform analyzes against Covid-19. More specifically, in the Clinic all coronavirus detection tests are performed using the internationally recognized and certified (CE-IVD) techniques and in particular:
PCR The test is conducted every day, Monday to Sunday, from 07:00 to 21:00. The cost of the test is 47€ (Sample Analysis 35€ / Sampling 12€). The result is available no later than 24 hours after sampling.
RAPID TEST The test is conducted every day, Monday to Sunday, from 07:00 to 21:00. The cost of the test is 10€ and the result is available no later than 1 hour after sampling.
ANTIBODY TEST This is a blood test to detect antibodies to the virus. Antibody tests are performed daily, including weekends, from 07:00 until 21:00. The cost of the exam is 20€ and the results are available on the same day.
* All tests can also be performed in a place indicated by the examinee, via the Clinic’s special department which was set up for this purpose.

1. Real Time – PCR
rRT-PCR is the golden standard method of viral diagnostic tests for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19. This method detects genetic material (nucleic acids) and specifically identifies the RNA (ribonucleic acid) sequences that comprise the genetic material of the virus. Our PCR uses as a sample nasopharyngeal or nasal swab specimen and has as target dual viral genes. The analytical sensitivity of method is (11.5 copies/rxn).
2. Antigen or Rapid Test
Rapid test Is an immunochromatographic assay that detects the presence of a specific viral antigen, which implies current SARS-Cov-2 infection. The test uses as a sample nasopharyngeal or nasal swab specimen and has sensitivity 96,18%, specificity 99,7% and total agreement about 97,7%. The turnaround time ranges from 15 minutes to 4 hours.
3. Antibody test
The laboratory test of each antibody allows us to investigate the immune response of the subject who either became ill with the virus (with or without symptoms) or was vaccinated against the virus. Laboratory testing of antibodies is recommended for at least 14 days either after the onset of symptoms or after confirmation of infection (positive molecular test RT-PCR). The antibody test is performed for epidemiological purposes and not for diagnostic purposes. For the diagnosis of the disease in its acute phase, this method is not suitable.
