Opening of a new COVID-19 screening center in Saint-Martin

0

In continuation of the nasopharyngeal samples taken in drive mode by 3 of the Bio Pole Antilles laboratories in Guadeloupe, and in addition to the specific COVID 19 sector set up by the Constant Fleming hospital in Saint-Martin, the Bio Pole Antilles laboratory de Saint-Martin establishes nasopharyngeal samples in a dedicated room, in compliance with the sanitary measures and conditions set out by the Ministry of Solidarity and Health.

A system that comes in response to the recommendations made by the High Scientific Council which recommends "testing, testing, testing" the overseas population.

THE SAMPLES ARE MADE ONLY BY APPOINTMENT and with a MEDICAL ORDER, at the Local Bio Pole Antilles in Marigot, 31 rue de la Liberté, (former Presta Santé).

A nasopharyngeal sample will be taken using a swab (a sort of large cotton swab). Screening will then be done on this sample using the RT-PCR technique which will make it possible to screen people carrying the virus and to take the necessary measures. In addition to the samples taken by the Saint-Martin hospital, this additional device set up by the Bio Pole Antilles laboratory, will make it possible to increase the screening capacity for COVID 19 on the island, illustration of the active public collaboration- private, to respond to a public health problem.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF THIS DEVICE?

It is a question of meeting the needs for samples in a dedicated, ventilated space, thus ensuring the safety of the patient and the sampler.

WHO CAN BE TESTED?

To date, the list of people who can benefit from RT-PCR screening is established by the Ministry of Solidarity and Health and relayed by the ARS.

TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT :

Connect to the website www.biopoleantilles.fr (Covid tab), follow the procedure and in particular scan the prescription, the social security certificate and the patient's mutual card. Wait for the laboratory phone call for the date and time of the appointment.

THE DAY OF THE SAMPLING:

Present yourself at the local Bio Pole Antilles 31 rue de la Liberté, AT THE TIME OF THE APPOINTMENT agreed with an identity document. Wearing a mandatory mask. The sample is quick. You will obtain the results online via a secure access in order to guarantee the confidentiality and distancing rules.
