|When shall I take the test?||
Please be advised that after coming into contact with these infections, it can take some time for viral levels to rise to a detectable amount. This is an early detection test therefore we do advise to allow for a brief incubation period of 10 days before testing. The test should be performed after the incubation period or, if a negative result is received before the incubation period, we recommend performing a confirmatory test after the advised incubation period.
