Private Home Coronavirus Testing.

Get COVID-19 tests at home, from an experienced provider.

Blue Horizon have been helping people access Laboratory testing from the safety of their own home since 2009. As our accredited laboratory partners now offer PHE approved COVID-19 tests our customers can now order these Coronavirus tests safely online, alongside our more usual range of tests such as thyroid hormones and cancer markers.

An enhanced service, for these unprecedented times.

Due to unexpected postal delays all customers are now receiving expedited postal delivery and we are pleased to say that typically results for the Covid-19 IgG antibody test are now being issued within 1 working day of the laboratory receiving back the samples, and PCR swab results are usually coming back within 2 working days.


Trusted Laboratories.

Our test runs are on a very small scale compared to the UK government’s ambitious plans for mass detection and screening. Private testing is run independently from the government, and the sale of these tests does not limit capacity for NHS access to these tests. Both the COVID-19 PCR swab tests and the Coronavirus IgG COVID-19 Antibody test are carried out by our regular trusted private laboratories that are fully accredited and registered with the Care Quality Commission.

An easy process to follow.

For those that have not used home collection kits before the process can seem a little daunting, but 95% of our customers find collecting a viable swab sample straight forward, and the antibody test is now using vacutainer only for which you need a professional to collect your blood.

  1. Order your Coronavirus test kits online, they are dispatched same day (if before 1pm, monday to friday)
  2. Due to previous delivery issues we are now sending both the PCR swab kit and Antibody test kit ourselves, using the Royal Mail Next Day guaranteed by 1pm service, where a tracking number is provided.
  3. Take a sample by following the instructions
  4. Post back in either the provided return envelope, by using the courier service, or dropping directly into the laboratory yourself.
  5. When the laboratory receive the sample, they will start testing straight away, results will be issued within 1 working day of laboratory receipt for the Antibody test, and 1-3 working days for the Swab test.
