Hi

I do not think so ,I think it totally separate Test. Maybe ask someone in the know in the UK to clarify this matter. I am not an expert on these matters.

That is the problem,nobody over in the uk knows anything about the tma test.the nearest I can get to it is the lamp test which stands for reverse -transcription loop -mediated isothermal amplification.most of the wording is mostly the same has thevspanish advice but cannot get any confirmation of this.so if anyone over there in Spain can give any advice would be very helpful.many thanks.

According to this link below there are test sites all over the UK. The list  of  Test Centres linked to this website below is 7 pages long. Surely one should be able to assist you in getting this test!!!!!
