ESR offers a molecular diagnostic laboratory test for COVID-19. This service is for samples sent by medical professionals only. ESR does not test patients onsite for COVID-19.

The service will accept respiratory samples from all suspect cases that have been discussed with the local Medical Officer of Health.

ESR has validated all our molecular diagnostic COVID-19 tests and obtained IANZ accreditation. We also continually participate in the RCPA Quality Assurance Programme and other quality assurance exercises to help us maintain the highest test accuracy.

For COVID-19 health advice and information (including advice on getting tested), contact the Healthline team (for free) on 0800 358 5453 or +64 9 358 5453 for international SIMS.
