MOLECULAR TEST COMMISSIONED BY A BASIC HEALTH CARE DOCTOR
EXPERIENCED DIAGNOSTICIANS AND MOLECULAR BIOLOGISTS
TESTS FOR CORONAVIRUS DAILY
OF EXPERIENCE IN GENETIC RESEARCH
Free SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus tests commissioned for patients b a basic health care doctor, available also in mobile collection points in Gdańsk Sopot and Warsaw.
Do you have a referral from a primary care physician?
Plan the test in advance!
If, as a result of tele consultation or a home visit, your doctor decides that you have symptoms characteristic of COVID-19, he may received a referral for a test. The doctor will also notify the Sanepid about it. Your doctor may also refer you for a test earlier if you feel unwell.
On the eighth day of quarantine, you will receive a text message from the Sanitary and Epidemiological Station, informing you about the possibility of taking the test. Please contact our mobile collection point on the same day as you received a referral fot a test.
Then you will be able to take the test in one of our mobile points completely free of charge.
Remember, after receiving referal for a test, call this number:
and make an appointment for the test.
Thanks to the cooperation with the POZ, you can take a free test. Nevertheless, a condition for using the test is a positive verification of your data in the electronic EWP system.
What does the procedure look like?
Are you quarantined and want to exclude or confirm infection? It’s simple:
STEP 1: If, as a result of tele consultation or a home visit, your doctor decides that you have symptoms characteristic of COVID-19, he may received a referral for a test. The doctor will also notify the Sanepid about it.
STEP 2: On the same day, call +48 58 58 800 and we will make an appointment for your test.
STEP 3: On the 10th or 11th day of quarantine day arrive by car at the mobile collection point. Then we will take a swab for the test.
Remember: For epidemiological reasons, you must not arrive by bike, motorcycle, public transport or on foot. On the way to the mobile collection point, do not get out of the car or make any errands.
STEP 4: Before taking a test, open the link from the text message and prepare the QR code to be scanned by the employee of the collection point.
STEP 5: After taking the test, you can check the result on your Online Patient Account and on our electronic platform.
If the virus is not detected in the test sample, the Sanitary and Epidemiological Station should release you from quarantine.
We encourage you to read the detailed guidelines of the Ministry of Health:
Where can you take a free test?

Below you can find answers to some frequently asked questions:
In case of a positive test result, contact the local sanitary and epidemiological station and follow their recommendations.
As recommended, all results, including positive ones, are reported by INVICTA Medical Diagnostic Laboratories to the local sanitary and epidemiological station.
Quarantined patients can reach the site only by car. Do not get out of the car either. This is due to the need of ensuring safety and reducing human contact to the minimum necessary. The collection point should not be entered on foot.
Yes. The staff is equipped with personal protective equipment, including FFP 2 and 3 masks and visors, which reduces the risk of virus transmission. The person from whom the material is taken does not have contact with the pathogen. The swab taking itself takes no more than 5 minutes.
The test allows to measure clearly whether coronavirus’s RNA is present in the material taken or not. Credibility and quality of the result is the result of several factors: (a) appropriate swab taking by trained personnel, (b) precise evaluation of the sample quality in the laboratory, (c) a thoughtful process of diagnostics and additional quality controls, (d) the experience of the Laboratory and diagnosticians working in it. The test is carried out using the rtPCR method, recommended by the World Health Organization. Diagnosis is possible as early as 5 days after infection.
Yes. The study is recommended to exclude the infection with the virus after the quarantine period.
Wait for a signal from the staff to enter the line-marked zone. It is located right by the tent forming the essential collection point. Turn off the engine and haul the handbrake. Prepare your ID card and show it to the member of the staff through the glass. Lower the window – the staff then retrieves material from the throat and nose with a special swab. The swab is placed in a test tube with a buffer deactivating the virus and stabilising its genetic material. After that, wait for the signal from the staff and leave the collection point.
- The swab should be taken after rinsing the mouth with boiled water or after about 3 hours after the last meal.
- Before taking the swab, do not brush your teeth, or use mouthwash, throat lozenges and chewing gum.
- The swab should be taken after at least 2-3 hours from the application of intranasal medicine i.e. drops, ointments, sprays.
- Do not rinse or blow your nose before taking the swab.
- Before taking the swab, it is recommended to remove movable dentures.
The process itself from the moment of entering the point to the moment of leaving does not take more than 5-10 minutes.
According to the recommendations of medical organizations, it is necessary to take a swab both from the throat and from the nose.
The download of material at the go-thru downloads point is made in a specific hourly range, so that the waiting time is reduced to a minimum.
No. Only coronavirus-specific RNA can be detected in a genetic test. Therefore, only infection or lack of it can be confirmed. Past infection can be confirmed by performing serological tests, detecting antibodies.
After logging in to the medipoint.pl panel, you can see the result of your test in the form of one of the four messages:
- Negative – negative test result (SARS-CoV-2 has not been detected). This means that the presence of the coronavirus has not been confirmed in the test sample. You are still recommended to take precautions and hygiene as usual.
A negative test result is not an absolute guarantee of the absence of contagion and should by no means be considered the sole criterion that proves the lack of infection.
- Positive – positive test result (SARS-CoV-2 has been detected). The presence of coronavirus in the test sample has been confirmed.
- Non-diagnostic – the sample is unsuitable for testing. Another sample should be collected and submitted for testing as soon as possible. There might have been some irregularity – for instance, the sample was not collected in accordance with the rules provided on the testujemy.org website.
- Inconclusive – the result is at the threshold of the analytical sensitivity of the test. Another sample needs to be collected for testing within 24-48 hours after the original sample was collected.
In case of a positive result, contact the local sanitary-epidemiological station and follow the recommendations received, or see a medical doctor in a specialised epidemiological hospital or in an infectious ward.
