The Berlin Centre for Travel & Tropical Medicine, also known as the BCRT, is a privately run tropical institute which offers medical advice before and after travel.
We have developed a globally unique, practical concept of travel medicine advice: our travel practices are located in outdoor equipment stores. There you can get advice before your trip and also have a vaccination at the same time.
In addition, in our outpatient department in Berlin, we offer specialised infectious diseases consultation which is visited by patients from all of Europe. There we also carry out numerous clinical studies. In the area of vaccination studies the BCRT is one of the largest clinical test centres in Germany.

Tests for COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 antibodies at BCRT
We offer antibody tests (past disease) on the new Coronavirus in collaboration with our laboratory service providers in all our travel practices.
Additionally, we now perform PCR tests (exclusion of an acute infection with COVID-19) only for certification of being symptom-free at all our locations. In case of acute symptoms, please contact the official authorities.
The notification of findings takes up to 48 hours (exclusion of acute disease) or about one week (antibody test) after the date of the appointment.
