Outside of the screening campaigns conducted by the public health system, many Regions have given citizens the opportunity to undergo paid serological tests in private laboratories to check for the presence of antibodies to coronavirus. In Lombardy, it is possible to contact about fifteen accredited centers that already analyze swabs for the health service or other private structures, provided they have microbiology laboratories and, therefore, authorized to provide the tests according to the regional resolution of 12 May. Reservation via internet or telephone is often required. Costs vary from 25 up to about one hundred euros. The report arrives within a few days. The tests must be CE marked and reported by laboratory personnel and cannot be sold or made available to the uninitiated, i.e. non-expert people.
