How it works
Buy your test online in advance. We just need your flight details and your UK isolation address, then we’ll send you a booking reference to use on your Passenger Locator Form.
Fly to England, self-isolate and take a UK Government required test on Day 2. We’ll then send your Test To Release kit directly to your isolation address so it’s there for you on Day 5 (or the first working day afterwards).
Follow the simple instructions, spit in the tube provided and register your test online. No medical staff, no uncomfortable swabs, no hassle. Easy!
Put your sample in the prepaid return parcel provided and drop it into a priority postbox that day for next-day delivery via Royal Mail Tracked 24. You’re allowed to leave self-isolation to do this.
You’ll get an email to view your result online, within 24-36 hours of your sample arriving at our lab. If your test’s negative – good news! You’re free to end your self-isolation period early, usually on Day 7 or Day 8.
Remember you still need to take another test on Day 8, even if your Test To Release result is negative.
Why use Chronomics for Test To Release?
Our COVID-19 testing kit is one of the world’s first saliva tests for coronavirus, and allows you to end any mandated isolation period early when arriving in England from abroad if you test negative. It’s fast, easily performed at home and is as highly accurate as an uncomfortable swab test. It’s also simple to register online, meaning your results will be with you quicker so you can get on with life.
The test uses cutting-edge, entirely safe technology that has been scientifically validated in the UK, the EU, the US and by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
As an epigenetics company, we’ve got lots of experience analysing people’s biological samples to give them actionable information about their health. Now, we’re using that expertise to help in the fight against COVID-19.
Testing for COVID-19 without the hassle
Do it yourself, no medical professional involved
All the certification you need to leave the UK
Fly back to the UK, go home and unpack (self-isolating, if you're returning from an Amber country) and you'll find your inbound testing kits waiting for you.
RT-PCR tests that are 99% accurate*
Register online your Day 2 PCR testing kit and return your sample to us using the pre-paid postage provided.
Perform your Day 8 PCR test (if required) at the appropriate time. Assuming all your results are negative, you can then get back to life knowing you're safe to do so. Easy!
When to order
You should buy your Chronomics Test To Release saliva kit before you fly (or in the first few days after you arrive) to reduce your quarantine period from 10 days to just 7 once you’re in England.
Other mandatory requirements
You’ll still need to take the Government-required tests on Day 2 and Day 8 after arrival as well, even if you are enrolled in the Test To Release scheme. You can’t use Test To Release if you’re travelling from a ‘red list’ country (please refer to the government’s latest list refer to the government’s latest list here).
