Detection of coronavirus, influenza A/B and RS virus 75 €

What does the panel include?

Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) causes a lung disease known as COVID-19. The main symptoms caused by coronavirus – fever, cough and difficulty breathing – appear in most cases within 2-5 days after exposure, but in some cases up to 14 days after that. Influenza A and B as well as RS virus cause similar symptoms.

In addition to the SARS-CoV-2 result, the package provides the results for influenza and RS virus. These viruses cause lower and upper respiratory tract infections with similar symptoms, allowing more results to be obtained from a single sample.

This is box title

In Estonia as well as all over the world, detection of viral RNA is used for coronavirus diagnosis and infection detection. There are two main advantages to detecting viral RNA:

  • The discovery of the presence of coronavirus in the early stage of viral infection and therefore implementation of immediate self-isolation, if necessary.
  • The results are very reliable.

The method of analysis in the laboratory is real-time PCR. All three analyses are performed from this one sample simultaneously.

Giving the sample

SYNLAB can test for coronavirus, influenza A/B and RS virus using two methods:

  1. NASOPHARYNGEAL SWAB. The sample is collected with a cotton swab from the nasopharynx at a depth of ca 5 cm. In some cases, sampling may cause some discomfort. If necessary, we recommend blowing your nose beforehand.
  2. SAMPLING FROM THROAT GARGLE FLUID. For sampling, a special saline solution must be gargled in the throat for 10 seconds. It is not dangerous to your health if swallowed. In order to do the test, it is necessary to collect the entire solution into the cup. The material is analysed in the laboratory with a reliable PCR method.

PLEASE NOTE! We ask that you not eat, drink, smoke, chew gum or brush your teeth one hour before giving the sample. With children, make sure to practice gargling at home beforehand.

Where can I see the results?

You will receive the test result within 24 hours:

  • from the patient portal minu.synlab.ee – the results of underaged children can be seen by the parent who ordered the test
  • from Digilugu.ee patient portal

PLEASE NOTE! Only the result of the coronavirus test can be seen from the TESTI mobile application.

You need an ID card, Mobile ID or Smart ID to log in.

If necessary, you can collect the test result on paper from one of the SYNLAB blood collection points. Issuing the result on paper will cost 2 euros.

In the case of a positive result and/or symptoms, we recommend contacting your GP.

Reference values:

  1. Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2 RNA) – negative
  2. Influenza virus (influenza A/B RNA) – negative
  3. RS virus RNA – negative

A subsequent negative coronavirus PCR test result does not preclude an initial positive result.

In rare cases the laboratory issues coronavirus detection result “Borderline“. This may indicate a very low amount of the virus RNA in the sample and usually indicates one of two conditions:
1. The early phase of the infection (potentially infectious);
2. The healing phase (probably is no longer infectious).

Retesting is recommended after 2 days.
