Randox Health Frequently Asked Questions

  • Sample collection kit orders are despatched Monday - Saturday.

    It is not possible to change the delivery address, amend or cancel orders once accepted by Randox Health.

    Expected delivery is 4-6 working days once order confirmation is sent. The arrival date recorded as part of the ordering process has no impact on delivery schedule except for Day 5 (Test to release) orders.

    For Day 5 (test to release) orders, these will only be shipped prior to day 5 of quarantine for arrival on Day 5, as per government testing guidelines.

    Please note that if you only place your order for your day 5/ test to release kit after your date of arrival, we cannot guarantee that you will receive your test to release kit on your day 5. We encourage all orders are placed early.

    When the products you ordered dispatch, an email and/or text message will be sent out by the courier to confirm delivery schedule. If there are any changes regarding delivery, it is the customers responsibility to communicate with the courier once courier has taken receipt of the order.

For samples returned via an alternative courier, we aim to provide results within 12-24 hours of receipt of sample into the lab. Delivery dates for test results are approximate and Randox will not be held liable for any delay in delivery, particularly in light of global shortages in raw materials and the unprecedented level of demand for our services in the current challenging circumstance, as well as subject to further terms in this agreement. It is important to note that we are dealing with sensitive biological samples, which in rare circumstances may require secondary testing. Randox will not release a result until a thorough review has been carried out and we are satisfied with the deliverable result. This is in line with good laboratory practice.

What is a PCR test?

A polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test is an antigen test which is performed to detect the genetic material (DNA/RNA) of a virus' through a throat and nasal swab. This test is most accurate and is considered the "gold standard" test for diagnosing COVID-19 because of reliability.

Getting tested before your travel

There's no denying that you need a Covid-19 test before travelling, however, it completely depends on the destination where you're flying to, since there are a few destinations that do not require these reports. Each country has its own entry protocol, so you need to check the specific requirements of your country in advance. Moreover, each country has its own rules on whether a negative test report is required for children or not. For further details about the specific requirements of your destination, check the Foreign Travel Advice website (and do keep checking regularly, for, the requirements can be changed at short notice).

Also, please check with your airline if they are accepting home PCR tests because there are a few airlines that ask for a test taken in a clinical setting.
