What about testing smaller children?

Information regarding PCR and Antigen testing on children under 6 years of age:

It is always important that the person to be tested is involved and understands how the sampling takes place before it begins. It is therefore of the utmost importance that the accompanying parent/relative lets our experienced staff explain to the child how the sampling will take place when you are on site at the reception.

In most cases, sampling of small children usually goes well without any problems.

Our staff always has the right to interrupt a sampling in cases where it is not possible due to the child is scared, not sitting still or for some other reason can not be sampled. No sampling is performed on children who are held by a parent during a stressed and pressured situation.
