Information about the Covid tests we provide: rt-PCR and Antigen

New! We have introduced nasal sampling for all tests. The sample is taken from only 1-2 CM DEPTH instead of the pins that are inserted deep into the nose. New tests minimize unwanted reflexes such as coughing or sneezing, is less invasive and causes less discomfort.

New! Klinikk Spero lab is approved by Global Haven and PanaBIOS. It is a requirement for travelers to Africa to take the test at an approved test station that is a member of Global Haven. We upload your result in the Panabios system for verification and you travel to Africa with ease of mind. Klinikk Spero is the only clinic, at the time of writing, in Western Norway that has this recognition and among very few clinics in Eastern Norway. Travelers from Eastern Norway are welcome to book an appointment at Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel in Oslo and from Western Norway at Forus or Sola Airport test stations. QR code is also available if your destination demands it.

NOTE! We only test people without symptoms! We refer those who have symptoms to the public test offering.

Mass testing for the maritime sector

We have the capacity to test larger groups (i.e. for crew change) at one of our testing stations. We can also bring our mobile lab anywhere in Norway an test at location. We prefer that mass testings take place in the evening as the testing stations can be quite busy during daytime. The average duration for testing each person is aprox. 2 minutes. The crew can leave after the sample is taken. 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. Larger groups can be tested at the company or in a nearby hotel. Our mobile lab can do the rapid antigen test and rt-PCR Express anywhere in the country. A team flies in to your company to test your group and the results are provided the same day.

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 groupbooking@klinikkspero.no. We will register them in our patient journals and arrange for name tags to ensure an orderly and speedy testing process. We can test up to 500 people a day.

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.

The tests measure if you have the antibodies IgG and IgM.
