About Covid-19 Antigen Testing

At our clinic, we offer Covid-19 qualitative antigen nasopharyngeal swab testing by your own expense.

Antigen testing is accurate within 9 days of exposure.
If the amount of virus in the sample is small, the result may be negative even in the case of infection, so it is necessary to continue infection control measures regardless of the result.

If the test result is positive, we will contact you by phone immediately. In addition, we will notify the Chiyoda Ward Health Center as is required.
