#StrongerTogether

CENTOGENE is offering coronavirus testing at Hamburg Airport (HAM). Both nucleic acid detection (such as the RT-PCR test) and antigen tests are available at the Corona Test Center. The nucleic acid test detects the genetic material; the antigen test verifies the protein of the virus. Both test methods detect the presence of an acute viral infection and the consequent risk of infecting other people.
