Do you need a certificate to travel? PCR or antigen test with certificate.

Certificate to travel in Spanish, Catalan, English. We carry out antigen tests, PCR tests or antibody tests by appointment, results the same day and payment once the tests is done. FREE Cancelation.

Business hours:

Monday to Friday: 09:00-13:00.

Saturdays: 08:30-12:30.

**The time of appointment is indicative. It will be addressed in order of arrival.


The information on the results of the PCR tests and quick tests will be given directly to the pacient through a mobile application, therefore it will not be necessary to travel to the center to collect the results. In the case of the PCR test, the waiting time for the results will be less than 24 hours and the antigen tests less than 30 minutes.


Includes "fit to travel" certificate. It detects the RNA of the virus. It is the most sensitive technique to detect the coronavirus and requires a lower viral load to detect earlier and longer.

PRICE: 120€


Includes "fit to travel". Detects antigens, proteins on the surface of the virus. It is recommended to perform the test in the first five days in patients with symptoms.

PRICE: 30€


It indicates, trough a blood test, qualitatively if you have antibodies (IgM and IgG) generated against the coronavirus in case you have been exposed to the virus.

PRICE: 80€

+ What are the symptoms of COVID 19?

The most common symptoms are: fever, dry cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, muscle pain. Sometimes headache, loss of taste and smell, nasal congestion, persistent pressure in the chest and digestive symptoms such as diarrhea and abdominal pain are also common. In severe cases it can cause pneumonia, difficulty breathing, kidney failure and even death.

+ What types of diagnostic tests are there currently for the detection of Covid 19?


The PCR test is a test that detects the presence of genetic material from Covid 19. This test replicates the virus genome through Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). This test makes it possible to detect a fragment of the genetic material of a pathogen. The processing and interpretation of the samples in a microbiology laboratory is necessary and, due to its sensitivity, it is the reference test for the detection of the virus.

Antigen test

This test actively detects the presence of the infection since its function is to detect the presence of proteins in the virus. The result is obtained within a few minutes of sample collection.

Antibody test

These tests detect the different specific antibodies against the coronavirus. That is, they detect the individual's immune response against Covid 19. These tests detect the two types of antibodies: IgM and/or IgG:

IgM: immunoglobulins (antibodies). They appear in the early phase of the infection and disappear within a few weeks.

IgG: immunoglobulins (antibodies): They appear in the late phase of the infection and remain for a long time, sometimes years.

+ What is a PCR test?

The PCR test (Polymerase Chain Reaction) allows the detection of a fragment of the genetic material of a pathogenic agent. A PCR test detects early and effectively in the early stages of the infection regardless of whether there are no symptoms or the individual is not going to develop them, as is the case with asymptomatic people.

To carry out the PCR test, a sample is collected from a nasal portion of the pharynx with a sterile rayon swab and will be subsequently analyzed in a microbiology laboratory.

+ What results does a PCR test offer?

A PCR test detects the genetic material of the virus from its incubation until the disappearance of symptoms. In the event that the test result is negative, it may be due to two factors: either there has been no contagion or it has been passed. In the second case, an antibody test is necessary to confirm it.

+ Are the results of a PCR reliable?

The tests that we carry out in our laboratory have a 99.9% reliability.

+ How long does it take to know the result of a PCR?

The time required to obtain the result of a PCR is 24 hours.

+ Transmission and contagion

How can I get infected?

The contagion by close contact is carried out by the respiratory secretions of a person who is infected and that are generated by coughing, sneezing, talking, shouting. These secretions infect another person if they come in contact with their mouth, nose, or eyes.

+ Protection measures

How can I protect myself and others?

Prevention is the best way to prevent contagion: wear a mask covering your nose and mouth, keep a distance of one and a half meters from your contacts, ventilate closed spaces regularly and wash your hands frequently. In case of infection, quarantine should be done for ten days from the onset of symptoms and be isolated. In case of coming into contact with someone, they must wear a mask and keep a distance of two meters.


Although little by little we are defeating the virus, we must not let our guard down and prevention is the best way to protect ourselves and others. Do not forget the basic recommendations to prevent the transmission of the virus and that the spread of the disease advances.
