Get my test result

How can I get my test result?

  • The results of the analysis of your sample are usually available within 24 hours  of your sample being deposited.   You will be able to access your results by clicking on this link. You will be prompted to enter your barcode number and complete some general information. In a limited number of cases, the analysis cannot be performed (non-compliant sample) or the sample cannot be linked to a barcode (missing or illegible barcode).  If you cannot access your result within 48 hours, you are probably concerned by one of these situations.  We invite you to repeat the test next week and to follow the instructions carefully
  • A positive, negative or inconclusive result will be linked to your barcode number.
  • This test result is anonymous!

What should I do if my test comes back negative?

  • Continue to respect the barrier gestures: it is important to remain vigilant.
  • Take a new test the following week. Regularly consult this link to check the days and locations for the kit collection and sample drop off points.
  • ATTENTION: If you develop even mild symptoms potentially attributable to COVID-19, even if you have recently received a negative result, you should isolate yourself and phone your doctor without waiting for the next saliva test.
A negative result means that the screening test that ULiège carried out on your sample wasn’t able to detect evidence of the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is responsible for COVID-19.  Because of the reduced sensitivity of the saliva tests, your result could be a false negative. You should, therefore, remain vigilant and continue to respect social distancing and barrier gestures.

What should I do if my test comes back positive?

  • Place yourself in isolation immediately for a period of 10 days and respect the measures applicable to those who have tested positive for COVID-19. Keep the original barcode from your test, as you will be asked to provide it.
  • The Belgian government website states that you may leave your home after 10 days
    • if you have not had a fever for at least 3 days;
    • if you no longer have respiratory problems (being out of breath, having trouble breathing)
  • Follow the instructions that appear on the results screen.

A positive result means that the screening test that ULiège carried out on your sample found evidence of the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is responsible for COVID-19.

What should I do if my results are inconclusive?

Why are certain results inconclusive?

The technology used to carry out the screening tests can generate inconclusive results: this means that the results obtained do not allow us to determine if your sample tested negative or positive.
