Why do we test?
COVID-19 has a significant impact on organizations. As an employer, you want to get your employees back to work safely and healthily as soon as possible. Testing your employees can make an important contribution to this. Coronalab offers a high-quality COVID-19 PCR test (PCR test has been validated by the RIVM) and a fast test procedure (no rapid tests). This way your employees can come to us quickly and often have the results the same day.
When to test?
We are doing this test to see if employees currently have a COVID-19 infection. With our COVID-19 testing procedure, employees with mild symptoms can go to Coronalab. These are employees who can participate in the work process with a negative PCR test. You should therefore not have serious complaints. We also help companies with screening or random testing to detect a COVID-19 infection early. People do not have to have any complaints for this.
How does it work?
In the infographic below we explain our COVID-19 services. We use a PCR test to test whether employees are now carrying the COVID-19 virus. Our COVID-19 PCR test is of high quality and approved by the RIVM.
Do you want to test more than 25 employees? Then request booking codes for your employees. With a booking code, your employees can easily book online themselves and they do not have to pay in the clinic.
Analysis in the lab
The test is analyzed in our lab.
Tests before 11:30 am* will receive the results the same day.
Test after 11:30 am the next day.
* The time in the morning varies by location.
The results will be shared with your employee via secure e-mail. – Result negative? Your employee can return to work. – Result positive? In the context of the notification requirement, our doctor reports the positive test to the GGD and the RIVM (Dutch CDC). Follow the guidelines of the RIVM.
Testing in the clinic
Employees can have themselves tested at one of our test locations in the Netherlands (coronalab.eu locations and Medicina R’dam). This gives a lot of flexibility for the company and the employees. We make an agreement with the company about how we facilitate this. If employees are tested in the morning before 11.30 am (in A’dam Science Park this is 1 pm), the results will be available the same day. Otherwise, the results will follow around 10 p.m. the next day.
In consultation we can plan one (or more) test moments on location. Our doctor or nurse will then come to the location with the test materials. A group of employees can then have themselves tested here. The tests are then immediately taken to our own laboratory and analyzed with priority. Depending on the test moment, the results are available the same day before 10 p.m. or the day after before 10 p.m.
Testing by a company doctor
If a company doctor or Health Safety Officer is present, we also help analyze tests that have been conducted ourselves. Our doctor can also give a brief instruction for this. The samples are then sent in batch to our laboratory in Amsterdam, after which you will receive the results on the agreed date. This is often the same day before 10 p.m. or the day after the test around 10 p.m.

Who do and don't we test?
Coronalab offers the quick test procedure for employers. The aim is therefore to get people back to work faster and to keep companies open. This means that we only test people who have mild / mild symptoms (eg snot nose). If the test is negative, people can go back to work.
Our goal is NOT to test people who have a lot of complaints (high fever, shortness of breath, etc.), also because these people do not go to work with a negative test. We request this target group to go to the GGD and make an appointment via coronatest.nl. Our employees will point this out to you and may refuse people.
Who performs the corona test?
At the Coronalab.eu locations we work with healthcare professionals such as doctors and nurses. We are supported in this by interns. All results are confirmed by one of our doctors.
How is the test administered?
For the PCR test we take a throat and nose swab. This is in accordance with the RIVM guidelines.
We do adapted testing methods for travelers if the country and local authorities request it. We ask travelers to look carefully at the testing method for their destination themselves. This can differ per country.
What time will I get the results?
The results will be sent by secure email around 10 p.m.
On busy days it may happen that the test result is slightly delayed. We will indicate this on the website.
If for whatever reason you do not receive the result, please send a message to email@example.com. Our helpdesk is ready to assist you.
GDPR and quality assurance
Positive PCR results will be communicated to the individual by our physician. We then report this in accordance with the legal reporting obligation on COVID-19 with the local GGD and RIVM.

Is Coronalab a certified lab for COVID-19
Yes. Coronalab is a laboratory validated by the RIVM for conducting COVID-19 RT-PCR tests. You can find our declaration of performance here. This means that our PCR test has successfully completed a number of validation steps and meets the quality criteria set by RIVM.
As a result, the GGD accepts our results and, unlike many other commercial test lines, you do not have to do a retest at the GGD.
Are the COVID-19 tests reliable and of good quality?
Yes. All corona tests that we use have a CE mark. In addition, the tests are conducted by healthcare professionals and a doctor is always available for medical matters. Coronalab.eu also employs a physician-microbiologist who can be consulted. For our PCR tests we have been approved by the RIVM and are one of the validated labs. https://lci.rivm.nl/covid-19/bijlage/aanvullend
My employee has tested positive for corona. What now?
If Coronalab tests an employee positive for COVID-19, our doctor will report this to the local GGD and RIVM.
It may also be the case that the company doctor or medical service passes the positive test. However, this is clearly laid down in the cooperation agreement.
Is there a risk of contamination in the workplace through contacts of an employee? Then a protocol of the GGD comes into effect. That protocol determines which measures are taken. In consultation, Coronalab can provide support with possible screening of employees who have been in contact with the infected person. Please contact us for this.
When will my employee be called if the test is positive?
If the result is positive, your employee will always be called within 24 hours. We do this with an anonymous number. The result has already been announced by e-mail.
Can I test my employee for the corona virus?
The COVID-19 PCR test is administered by a (company) doctor. This can be done at our clinic or on location. The doctor will only share the result with the employee and will take measures with regard to possible positive cases. In neither case does the employee have to share the result. If someone has a positive (Corona-NU) test, we are obliged by law to report this to the regional GGD and the RIVM.
What can you as an employer do for your employees?
RIVM (Dutch CDC) has given instructions on how to deal with contacts at work and with customers. You are expected to follow these instructions. You can address employees about this.
How does a PCR test work?
A COVID-19 PCR test determines whether you are currently carrying the Coronavirus. We use a throat and nose swab to see if the COVID-19 virus is in the nose-pharynx.
Why not a blood test?
In the blood (serological test) we see from any antibodies that you have had the virus. This does not allow us to determine whether you are currently carrying the virus.
