Grab has rolled out a new service on GrabMart that allows you to book a professionally administered swab test to done from the comfort of your home.

Meant for pre-departure and pre-event purposes, the service is provided by Jaga-Me Mobile Health and Minmed Group.

On the Grab app, you can now select the type of test and turnover time you need, and book an appointment for a swabber to come down to your house.

Jaga-Me Mobile Health offers ART ($96.30) and PCR ($198.22) tests as well as Express PCR tests ($337.05).

The turnaround time of the ART test is up to two, the PCR test up to 48 hours, and the Express PCR test up to six hours.

There will be additional costs for each extra person to do the swab test.

Minmed Group, on the other hand, only offers ART ($65) and PCR ($145) swab tests with similar turnaround times. 

Upon completion of the test, the sample will be taken back to the lab to be processed. The results will be sent to your email address, as well as be reflected on your TraceTogether app.
