With Covid-19 currently impacting all walks of life and industry we realize the importance of knowing your Covid-19 status. In light of this we offer clients the following testing options:
- Antigen Rapid Testing: This test detects protein fragments specific to the Coronavirus. The turnaround time for test results on the Antigen Rapid Test is usually very quick. Generally between 15 - 30 minutes.
- PCR test: PCR testing is considered the “gold standard” in SARS-CoV-2 detection. This test actually detects RNA (or genetic material) that is specific to the virus and can detect the virus within days of infection, even those who have no symptoms. The turnaround time for test results is longer, generally between 2-3 days, however but results can also be available in as little as 24 hours dependent upon demand.
- Antibody rapid test: This is not considered a diagnostic test that can determine if someone has an active COVID-19 infection. A blood sample is taken from the client and used to look for antibodies produced by a person's immune system to help fight off COVID-19. An Antibody Rapid test can detect if someone had a past COVID-19 infection but not if they still are positive for the virus.
