Exclusive unit for COVID-19 testing at the Juaneda Miramar

At the Juaneda Miramar Hospital, we have set up an exclusive unit for COVID-19 testing. This area is exclusively for conducting tests related to this virus.

The unit is open from 8 am to 8 pm Monday to Friday and from 8am to 3pm on Saturdays.

It has its own car park and direct access from the outside, so there is no need to go through the hospital's common areas. This guarantees maximum safety for patients and nursing staff.

All our Juaneda centres where we offer COVID-19 tests

All those who want to guarantee their own safety and that of their fellow human beings and therefore undergo a COVID-19 test (PCR or serological tests) can also do so in any of the five hospitals of Juaneda Hospitales (Juaneda Clinic, Juaneda Miramar Hospital, Juaneda Hospital Muro, Clinic Juaneda Menorca and Clinic Juaneda Mahón) from Monday to Sunday from 8 am to 10 pm.

Home visits

For groups, we offer home sample collection, upon prior request by calling 971 22 22 22.

What is a PCR test?

The PCR (stands for Polymerase Chain Reaction) is a basic laboratory test for diagnosing active SARS-CoV-2 infection. It is currently the reference technique because of its sensitivity and specificity.

For best results, nasopharyngeal swab samples are used, and the technique allows the virus to be detected before symptoms appear.

Several fragments of the genetic material of the coronavirus (its RNA) are localized and amplified using PCR. If virus RNA is detected after the laboratory analysis, the result will be reported as positive and confirm the presence of an active infection.

It is a complex test that requires qualified personnel and special equipment to perform it.

What is a rapid antigen test?

This test detects specific proteins that are present in the virus itself. It is therefore also a test for the detection of an active infection, but with a lower sensitivity, as there is no prior amplification of the biological material, as is the case with PCR.

As with PCR, the sample is a nasopharyngeal swab.

It is a simple test that can be performed outside laboratory facilities, but always by professionals, and the results are rapid, available in 15 minutes.

This test is recommended for symptomatic patients who have been symptomatic for less than 5 days.

What is the ELISA test?

ELISA and CLIA tests are automated high-throughput assays for the quantitative or semi-quantitative determination of IgG and IgM antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 in blood samples. This means that they are not used to detect an active infection, but to detect our body's immune response.

IgM antibodies can be detected shortly after the incubation period (on average around day 7) and remain in the blood for a short period of time. If the levels of IgM in blood samples are positive, this can be an indicator of an acute infection and would have to be confirmed by PCR technique.

IgG antibodies appear later (on average from day 10-14) and circulate in the blood for a longer period of time. They are usually an indication of a past infection that has been overcome.

To reduce the rate of infection, it is important that a large proportion of the population is immune, either because people have acquired antibodies naturally after infection or because they have been vaccinated. Therefore, knowledge of immunity (antibody levels) using high-throughput techniques, such as chemiluminescence, is an important prerequisite to reduce the incidence of the virus in new waves. Thanks to the specific antibodies, our body recognises the invading virus and fights it to prevent the disease from developing in the future. As it is not yet known how long the specific antibodies to coronavirus persist, regular checks may be needed to see if immunity is being maintained.

3.- YOU ARE IN THE SO-CALLED WINDOW PERIOD*.

YOU MAY BE CURRENTLY GOING THROUGH THE DISEASE. YOU HAVE RECENTLY OVERCOME THE DISEASE AND ARE IN THE REMISSION PHASE. YOU OVERCAME THE DISEASE A LONG TIME AGO.
IF YOU HAVE BEEN IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH A POSITIVE CASE OR HAVE SYMPTOMS OF THE DISEASE, WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU UNDERGO A PCR. WE RECOMMEND ISOLATION AND A PCR STUDY TO CONFIRM THE DIAGNOSIS. WE RECOMMEND A REPEAT OF IgG ANTIBODIES IN 3 MONTHS TO MONITOR YOUR IMMUNITY. WE RECOMMEND A REPEAT OF IgG BODIES IN 3 MONTHS TO MONITOR YOUR IMMUNITY.

*Results between 0.9 and 1.1 are considered indeterminate. You are probably in a phase of seroconversion (change in antibody level). Please consult a doctor for interpretation of your results. It is recommended to repeat the antibody test in one week.

* Time interval between the infection of a person and the detection of the infection (about 5 days for COVID-19).

What are the antibody rapid tests?

The antibody rapid test, like the ELISA or CLIA test, also provides information about the presence of IgG and IgM antibodies against SARS-CoV-2. However, in this case the result is qualitative. As in the previous case, it is also not used to detect an active infection, but to detect our body's immune response.

At Juaneda Hospitals, we offer these tests to detect antibodies to people who want to know if they have been infected with the coronavirus, whether or not they have had specific symptoms. Knowing whether the infection has already been overcome is very valuable information in seroprevalence studies. These studies tell us what percentage of the population has passed the disease.

The advantages of these rapid tests are (as the name suggests) the speed of the results and the possibility of using them outside laboratory facilities.

Likewise, at Juaneda Hospitals, we stress the importance of going to a qualified centre with specialised professionals and medical specialists to get a correct interpretation of the results. At the same time, we remind you that it is essential to comply with the preventive and hygienic measures required by the authorities.

FOR YOUR SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF ALL, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU FOLLOW THE RULES BELOW WHEN YOU COME TO OUR HOSPITALS.

  • Come to the centre wearing a protective mask.
  • Even if you are wearing gloves, you must wash and disinfect your hands with the disinfectant solutions available in each department.
  • Come to your medical appointment alone. If you need help, a maximum of one person can accompany you, who should also follow the same guidelines as the patient.
  • Try to be on time for your appointment, neither too early nor too late, to spend as little time as possible in waiting rooms.
  • Avoid walking around the hospital.
  • Keep a safe distance from other users and respect the centre's rules and instructions, such as the distance between seats and the distance lines in the reception area.
  • If you need to pay, do so preferably by card to avoid handling cash.

We thank you in advance for your assistance.

Will my insurance cover these costs?

The costs of these tests, which are requested by the patient himself, are not covered by your health insurance.

How much do they cost?

The PCR test costs 90EUR.
The rapid antigen test costs 30EUR.
The antibody rapid test costs 50EUR.
The price for the ELISA test is 80EUR.
The price for the CLIA test is 60EUR.
Home visits: the PCR test costs 150EUR and a rapid antigen test costs 90EUR.

Do I need to make an appointment?

It is not necessary to make a prior appointment for these tests at one of our centres. However, we recommend that you call our telephone number 971 28 00 00 for specific questions about the tests and our centres.

How long does it take to get the results?

  • In the case of an antigen test, you will receive the result in 40 minutes.
  • In the case of a serological test, you will receive the results between 1 and 6 hours after the blood has been taken.
  • In the case of PCR, you will get the results in less than 24 hours.
  • ELISA test results are available within 5 days.
  • CLIA test results you will receive within 24 hours.

Please note that these times may be delayed.

I have a positive result for a Covid 19 test, should I have a confirmatory PCR?

  • Antigen test: If the result is positive, no confirmation is needed. If your test is negative and you have symptoms, a PCR is required to rule out infection with coronavirus.
  • Serological test and rapid test: If you are IgM positive, a confirmatory PCR is required.

I have developed permanent IgG antibodies, will they protect me from the disease?

According to the Department of Health, "there is published evidence of the formation of neutralising antibodies, both in animal models and in human cases". However, at present we cannot say that a person who has already overcome the disease and formed antibodies is safe from re-infection. Based on the studies published so far, we can indicate that there is some degree of protection, but it does not appear to be complete immunity in all cases.

Post-Covid Unit, for the follow-up of patients who have overcome a coronavirus infection.

In order to reduce the number of infections, the immunity of the population is important, either because people have formed antibodies after infection or because they have received the vaccine. In this sense, the pandemic has left a large number of people who have contracted COVID 19 with sequelae that affect their daily lives. After overcoming the disease, patients suffer varying degrees of respiratory disorders (pulmonary fibrosis, dyspnoea), muscle and joint disorders (pain, weakness, atrophy), nervous system disorders, cardiovascular system disorders and cognitive disorders (language, attention, learning).

This is why we have set up the Post-Covid Unit at Juaneda Hospitals. It is intended for all those who have overcome the disease, regardless of the severity, from asymptomatic (knowing only from a positive PCR) to those who have been admitted to the intensive care unit. The unit is designed to: carry out checks, detect and treat secondary diseases or determine antibody levels to the virus.

The antibody levels, determined using high-performance techniques such as chemiluminescence, will enable us to reduce the incidence of the virus. Antibodies are substances that appear in the blood 4-6 weeks after contact with the virus. We find people who do not generate antibodies at all, those who do not generate enough antibodies and those who generate a significant amount of them. In the last case, we speak of immunity, as the antibodies formed fight against the invading virus when contact occurs again, thus preventing the disease from developing in the future.

After overcoming the disease, it is important to monitor the patient's health and to analyse and classify the possible consequences that the virus has caused in the body and that may eventually lead to chronic problems. Depending on the severity of the disease, specialists from different fields are involved.
