Things to keep in mind at RT-PCR test centre in Ahmedabad

People can directly reach the centre for the test as they need not take an appointment beforehand. The centre also provides people with a chance to give their samples while seated in their vehicles. However, people can also arrive at their centre in a private taxi.

The reports for the RT-PCR test will be ready within 24-36 hours of the test and will be shared through WhatsApp, SMS, or email.

Apart from this, people can scan the QR-code through their mobile phones at the entry to get registered. After registration, a token will be generated which they will need to show at the collection centre.

One can also make the payment of Rs 800 for the test online or through cash at the centre itself.

The centre has been set up in the collaboration with Neuberg Supratech Laboratory, under a public-private partnership (PPP).
