Receive your test result “definitely”and “on time”

We often heard that people took PCR test advertising “receive your test results within 3hours” and did not get your results for hours and hours. This delay may effect on your quarantine period because Japanese government accepts your test result by 18:00 to shorten your quarantine period. If you submit your result after 18:00, it will be processed next day and your quarantine period may exted +1 day, +2 days, etc.

We, Setolabo, are a sanitary laboratory approved by the public health center (“Hokenjyo”), government of JAPAN. Most of our PCR tests (95%) are entrusted by the government. Also, available time of your test result is based on our experiences, and we provide reliable tests with appropriate prices.
