Covid-19 Testing Options

With the recent increase in the number of Covid-19 cases across Thailand, the Department of Disease Control & the Ministry of Health are increasing their efforts to facilitate testing. Among other measures, they are promoting a more extensive use of the Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Test. This is a qualitative test for the detection of SARS CoV-2 antigens.

As a registered clinic, the Be Well Medical Center is authorized to conduct these tests.

The government also announced an upcoming approval of antigen self-tests. Once approved and available we will be able to supply these ‘self-test kits’ at our pharmacy. We will inform you when availability and prices are known.

Below are the 3 tests we perform at Be Well daily in a special outdoor location behind our center.

Covid-19 Antigen Rapid Test

What does this test detect? This is a qualitative test for the detection of SARS CoV-2 Antigens. It will tell you whether you have an active virus infection. We use the latest Abbott test which is nearly as accurate as most PCR tests.

Many domestic and international destinations and airlines now accept this antigen test but please check carefully right before you depart since regulations tend to change.

How is the test done? Nasal Swab

Turnaround Time: Results are back within 45 minutes + you will receive a medical certificate.

Covid-19 IgM/IgG Rapid Antibody Test

What does this test detect? The antibody test can be used to detect if you have COVID-19 antibodies. The test could be useful for people who have recovered from an infection or are vaccinated and would like to check their (level of) antibodies.  This test can quantify the presence and level of antibodies, indicating a higher immunity.

How is the test done? Blood Test
