Which tests are offered through our partner labs?

Covid-19  Laboratory Developed PCR Test

Thermo Fisher and Ortho Clinical are listed on the FDA Emergency Use Authorization at the FDA website, under FAQs on Diagnostic Testing for SARS-CoV-2.

All swab tests have high sensitivity and high specificity.

SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Antibody, IgG and IgM Tests

Roche and BD are performing the SARS-CoV-2 Antibody, IgG and IgM Tests in combination. Below is some background information on this testing.

After infection with SARS-CoV-2, viral antigens stimulate the body’s immune system to produce antibodies.  The virus incubation period and the days/weeks when the antibodies appear in the blood are defined below.

SARS-CoV-2 virus Antibodies, IgM and IgG

  • IgM appears early in the blood circulation after an infection (as early as 3-5 days).  
  • IgG appears later  in the blood circulation after an infection (within 3-4 weeks).

"The IgM and IgG tests are able to detect the antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the kits have high specificity, sensitivity and clinical agreement with samples confirmed with PCR methods (RT-qPCR)".
