To contain the spread of COVID-19 virus, several guidelines and regulations have been implemented by Governmental authorities. Among these guidelines include the presentation of a negative COVID-19 test result before embarking on international travels. Despite the good intentions of these regulations, it has come to our attention, that some people are taking advantage of it by resorting to COVID test result racketeering and forging, thereby preying on desperate and naive travelers and at the same time deceiving unsuspecting officials.


This bad practice by criminal elements, is not only increasing the chances of spreading the virus further but also soiling the name of reputable laboratories authorized by the government to carry out COVID-19 tests. This is why everyone must ensure that they get tested at laboratories that have an authentication process in place, one of such laboratories is SYNLAB Nigeria.

SYNLAB Nigeria is one of the authorized COVID-19 testing labs in Nigeria, and in its bid to help curb this ugly trend of fake COVID test result that is being peddled, it has put several measures in place to ensure that COVID reports from their lab is easily authenticated, verifiable and differentiated from forged results.

SYNLAB has included a Unique Security Feature in its COVID reports, a unique 2D barcode which comes with all SYNLAB COVID reports since the 19th of October 2020. This feature can be used by individuals as well as law enforcement officials to authenticate SYNLAB COVID reports.
