Antigen Test (Lateral flow) – All-inclusive price of 15000 yen for the test, consumption tax, English certificate, and consultation. This test will be conducted via nasal swab and will take 15 minutes to process. You will be leaving with a physician-signed document in hand.

PCR Test (Real-time Reverse Transcription) – All-inclusive price of 25000 yen for the test, consumption tax, English certificate, and consultation. This test will be conducted via saliva (or nasopharyngeal swab if required). Samples received by 12:00 noon will be processed by 18:00. Samples received in the afternoon will be processed by 9:00 the following business day. You will be receiving a PDF via email as soon as the laboratory report is ready.
