Information about the tests we provide

New! Clinic Spero introduces PATIENT-FRIENDLY NASAL SAMPLING for both PCR and Antigen tests with pins only inserted 1-2 CM DEPTH instead of the pins that are inserted far deep into the nose. New tests minimize unwanted reflexes such as coughing or sneezing, less invasive and less discomfort for travelers, which helps reduce travelers' aversion to the procedure.

Although we try our best to keep the information on this page up to date, certain parts can become outdated as the regulations change with short notice. We encourage everyone to seek information from airlines and government sources directly to stay up to date with the latest changes. The most important government sources in Norway are helsenorge.no, udi.no, regjeringen.no and fhi.no.

NOTE! We only test people without symptoms! We refer those who have symptoms to the public test offering. The same goes for those who have been in close contact with anyone symptomatic.

REMEMBER to wear a face mask! This is required at the testing stations as well as the clinic.

Mass testing for the maritime sector

We have the capacity to test larger groups (i.e. for crew change) if they arrive as one group by buss to our test station at Forus. We prefer that mass testings take place in the evening as the testing stations can be quite busy during daytime. The waiting time to get the results may vary depending on the size of the group but are generally delivered the same day within a couple of hours.

We can provide test results and medical certification for the group as a whole if everyone test negative. We can also provide this for individuals for when they are traveling abroad.

Send us a list of names that includes social security numbers (or D-number/DOB), as well as the name of the company and organization number to rocco@klinikkspero.no. We will register them in our patient journals and arrange for name tags to ensure an orderly and speedy testing process. We send invoice to companies with organisation number.

Antibody tests

It takes time for the body to build antibodies after an infection or taking the vaccine. You have to wait at least two weeks after the symptoms starts before you can take the antibody test. Many who have experienced symptoms related to corona have not been tested when they where sick, but antibodies can reveal if you have been through an infection. If you have had the virus it is likely that you will be immune for quite a while, although there is a slight chance to become infected again. The tests measure if you have the antibodies IgG and IgM.

  • A small and quick blood sample is taken from your finger and the results are ready within 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Seroligical tests are considered to give a more conclusive result than quick tests, but it depends on which stage of the infection you are when taking the test.
