Since the corona virus, or Sars-CoV-2 corona virus, spread all over the world, many different tests have come on the market. These tests can roughly be divided into two groups.
The most commonly used test is a PCR test, which tests whether someone is carrying the virus at the time of testing. This is done by means of a swab from the nasal and oral cavities, after which it is checked whether there is genetic material (RNA) of the virus at these locations. This shows whether a person is sick now, but not whether someone had the corona virus a month or even a week ago. For this you need a serological test.

The most commonly used test is a PCR test, which tests whether someone is carrying the virus at the time of testing. This is done by means of a swab from the nasal and oral cavities, after which it is checked whether there is genetic material (RNA) of the virus at these locations. This shows whether a person is sick now, but not whether someone had the corona virus a month or even a week ago. For this you need a serological test. This serological test can recently be taken at the Onedayclinic.
The test we offer at the Onedayclinic is a serological test. In this test blood is taken to see if antibodies are present in the body. Antibodies are built up when someone experiences a disease: if someone has antibodies against Sars-CoV-2, this indicates that this person has had an infection with the corona virus in the past. Until now, these tests were not reliable enough to offer, but now a test has been developed that is reliable. This means that the test is good enough to be offered to people who would like to know if they have had the corona virus.
However, it is good to keep in mind that it now seems that you can get infected with the corona virus more than once, just like for example the cold virus. That is why it is important to stick to the RIVM's advice, even if it turns out that you have already been infected with the virus once.
How does a Corona test blood test work?
During the consultation with the doctor some questions are first asked. It will be discussed how the test works and how useful it is for you as a client. Then blood is taken and tested for corona antibodies in the laboratory. The results are available in at least 3 working days and will be discussed with you by telephone.
How reliable is this test?
Different tests are marketed by different parties. Often these are not reliable. The test we offer is reliable, and also approved by the RIVM. In medical terms: the specificity is 98.5%, partly because there is no cross-reactivity with other corona viruses. In addition, it is an Ig total test, which shows IgG, IgM and IgA at the same time, with which the sensitivity exceeds 98%.
It goes without saying that we work with iso-certified laboratory Reinier MDC and big registered doctors.
What's the window period of the corona virus?
The window period is the time that elapses between the onset of symptoms and the moment when antibodies are detectable in the blood. For the corona virus, this window period is 14 to 21 days. This means that, after the onset of the first symptoms, you have to wait 2 to 3 weeks before it can be shown whether you have had corona.
How do you make an appointment for a Corona test at OneDayClinic?
You can make these by phone or via the appointment module on the website. You then choose the first option 'new appointment', after which you can choose a location.
How much does a corona blood test cost?
A consultation plus a blood test at OneDayClinic costs 100 euros.
What's Covid 19?
Covid 19 is the infectious disease caused by the Sars-CoV-2 virus, a variant of the Corona virus. Corona viruses have been known for a long time, there was a SARS outbreak in 2003 and a MERS outbreak in 2012. Both belong to the group of corona viruses.
Covid 19 is therefore a new variant of the corona virus that has been occurring since the end of 2019. Hence the name Covid 19.
How could you get infected with Covid 19?
Drops that are released by coughing or sneezing can cause you to become infected with Covid 19. You can breathe in these drops directly, which can cause you to become infected. In addition, the drops can also be on objects that you touch, after which you can touch your face with your hands. In this way the drops come into contact with your mucous membranes (eyes, nose, mouth) and contamination can occur.
Hence the RIVM's advice to stay at home in case of (cold) complaints and to wash your hands regularly.
Why test on Covid 19?
The WHO already came up with the policy 'testing, testing, testing'. Those who do a lot of testing know what is going on and what is happening in a country. In addition, it makes it clear on an individual level whether a person has gone through Covid 19.
What are the complaints of Covid 19?
Covid 19 can cause the following symptoms: colds such as runny nose and sore throat, fever, respiratory problems, loss of smell and taste. Many of these symptoms are similar to the flu. In order to be able to distinguish between the new corona virus and a 'regular flu', it is therefore important to test. At the moment of symptoms you can be tested by the GGD by means of the PCR test. Once the symptoms have passed, you can use an immune test to find out whether covid-19 was present.
