Compliments to your staff and centre. I was so impressed by how the entire process was handled. So polite and comforting and professional.

Dee Munks, Durban Epic Testing Centre Client

Cheryl Clegg, Cape Town Epic Testing Centre Client

Baie danke dat julle epicentre gekry het om my COVID-19 toets tuis to kom doen. Die hele proses was glad nie onaangenaam nie, Josh was baie vriendelike en die toets was vinnig en glad nie traumaties soos wat die staat en social media jou wil laat dink nie. Weereens dankie, ek sal jul op hoogte hou oor die resultaat proses.

Jaco, PI; Cape Town Epic Testing Centre Client
What a fast and friendly service!
Nadia, Maritime Solutions

My client would like to thank the entire Cape Town Epicentre team, for the excellent manner in which their employees have been made aware of their status.

Jan, Optimal Solve; Cape Town Epic Testing Centre Client

I am so grateful for all that Johann has done for us as a family and still doing. I am eternally grateful, and I stand in awe of his kindness. It brings tears to my eyes to think that someone can be so kind to total strangers. May the Lord bless you and keep you and take you from strength to strength. I took my uncle from a drug house about two months ago. He was slowly disappearing because of malnutrition. He doesn’t have any children or a wife. We all he has, and now you are willing to go the extra mile for him. My words are not enough to thank you. 🙏🏼 Bless you sir

Which Test Should I Get?

Having a COVID-19 PCR test is helpful if:
PCR testing

1. You are looking to get a test done for an official purpose

Such as leaving the country

Entering a nursing home

Having a medical procedure

Or needing to get on an international flight

Want more information on international travel regulations?

2. You have been exposed to COVID-19 at least 5 or more days ago

3. You have been exposed to COVID-19 and started symptoms

4. You are showing COVID-19 like symptoms without a known exposure


Get a COVID-19 PCR Home test if
PCR Home test

You are unable to come to our drive-through location

Due to frailty, young children or condition

However, we highly recommend our drive through testing due to its ease of use and competitive price


Get a COVID-19 Antigen & PCR test if:
Antigen & PCR tests

If you urgently need to know your infection status, and you were exposed to COVID-19

But you have not yet started COVID-19 symptoms

Or you started symptoms more than 3 days ago

Some countries require both a COVID-19 Antigen test and PCR test always check our travel regulations page and double check with your airline what is needed for your destination country.


Get only an COVID-19 Antigen test if:
Antigen tests

You have recently started symptoms of COVID-19 (1-3 days) and want a quick unofficial purpose infection check

Your doctor thinks you may have the novel coronavirus and have recently started (1-3 days) symptoms and recommends a quick unofficial purpose infection check

You have been in close contact with an individual suspected of or confirmed to have COVID-19 between 5-7 days ago, and you want to have a quick test done to check your status for unofficial purposes

Get a Rapid COVID Antibody test if:
Antibody tests
You had symptoms of COVID-19 in the past but weren’t tested.

Your doctor thinks you may have the novel coronavirus and started symptoms more than 3 days ago. But keep in mind:

– Rapid COVID Antibody tests are less sensitive to picking up current infections

– Rapid COVID Antibody tests predominately cannot be used for official purposes

– You have recovered from COVID-19 & want to check your immunity status

When should you get a COVID-19 PCR test?

Here are some handy tips for timing your test just right:

At Epicentre, we have 2 collection times on Monday to Friday. Our first collection is at 11am and our second collection time is at 4pm.

During the weekend, it is dependent on our testing sites opening times

In Hillcrest, we are open on Saturdays till 12pm that means that we only have 1 sample collection at 12pm which is why we cannot accept new orders after this time

In Randburg, we are open until 2:30pm on Saturday, but we only have 1 sample collection at 2:40pm.

In Rondebosch we are open on Saturday till 12pm that means that we only have 1 sample collection at 12pm which is why we cannot accept new orders after this time.

Our Bellville Branch is closed on the weekends.

If you are looking to get your result within the 24hr window or less you should come before our 11am sample collection as it will be processed at the lab sooner.

This is recommended for those getting a test done for an official purpose, such as travelling or medical appointments

If you are looking to avoid any waiting times, we recommend avoiding peak times such as 8-9am or during our nurses’ lunch break from 11:45am to 12:30pm

A personal recommendation for those travelling is to come at 10am
