Where can I get tested and what are the opening times?
What type of tests can I perfom at biosurfit mobile units?
Different types of tests can be performed:
- Covid-19 test: evaluation of the presence (or not) of the virus where the collection is made by swab and with results in 3 modalities:
- results in 2 hours;
- results in 12 hours;
- results in 24-48 hours.
- Monitoring: check-up of several parameters namely: C-reactive protein, Blood Cell Count (leucocyte analysis), an oximetry (measuring the amount of oxygen in the blood), measurement of body temperature and a brief clinical questionnaire (symptoms and behaviors)..
- Immunity: serological test to search for contact with the virus by the production of antibodies.
- Rapid Antigen Test (TRAg): by swab collection. The antigen test is less sensitive than the PCR tests, considered as "gold standard" by the WHO and DGS. Results from 30 minutes.

All of our tests can be performed without an SNS prescription. If that's the case, the test has a cost.
How can I get tested without a cost?
In order for the test to be costless, you have to have the SNS prescription. The test will also be free to those who are travelling to Azores. In that case, you will have to present the plane ticket.
Do you have agreements with insurance companies?
biosurfit has an agreement with Medicare.
For other insurers, consult them to find out what the procedure is.
In some insurance companies, with the SNS prescription for the swab and with our invoice, you can have a reimbursement as an expense incurred outside the network.
