Collection requirements


The request form is required to be completed in full with the driver's Medicare number, name, sex, date of birth, address and mobile phone number.

Medicare gives Australian residents access to healthcare, including pathology testing, which is a specialised health service.

After swab collection


Please keep the swab at ambient temperature and deliver to an SNP collection centre as soon as possible after collection. This will ensure the specimen is viable for testing and avoid delays in results reporting.

Self-collected swabs may be dropped off at any SNP collection centre across Queensland and Northern NSW. Please visit to find your nearest collection centre, including address and opening hours.

No, we do not have any locations for after-hours delivery, however there are a number of SNP collection centres with extended opening hours. Alternatively, you may arrange delivery to one of our laboratories or a nominated collection centre during opening hours.

Yes, an SMS is sent to the driver's mobile number noted on the request form on receipt of the swab at our collection centre or laboratory.

Results generally take between 24 to 48 hours once the swabs are received at our central laboratory in Brisbane. Negative results are sent via SMS to the mobile number provided on the request form.
