Lab PCR (results in 12-48 hours, expedites available)
Lab-Based PCR Tests send test samples to a laboratory to be analyzed, and deliver results in 1 to 3 days. Our partner labs, 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. CLIA available upon request.
Rapid PCR/Molecular (results as quick as 30 minutes)
NAAT and SAG-AFTRA approve rapid testing.
- Accula SARS-Cov-2 Test (Rapid PCR) uses a nasal swab sample and combines the accuracy of PCR with the speed and simplicity of rapid antigen tests, delivering visual results in 30 minutes.
- Abbot ID NOW™(Molecular) is a rapid, instrument-based, isothermal system that provides COVID-19 results in 15 minutes. No nasal swab necessary, this isothermal technology allows you to make effective clinical decisions sooner.
- RT Lamp Molecular Test (Rapid PCR) is a highly accurate and affordable solution to rapid detection of active COVID-19 infection in a large group. It is a rapid PCR test that can produce results for as many as 45 individuals in as little as 30 minutes per machine. The test combines a nasal swabbed sample collected from the individual which then runs in a thermal heater to detect nucleic acids from SARS-CoV-2. According to current medical research, it is as much as 100x more sensitive than some RT-PCR tests. This means that it can detect the presence of an active virus at significantly lower levels.
Rapid Antigen (results as quick as 15 minutes)
Whereas molecular tests require specialized equipment for processing samples, an antigen test is simpler, because it requires smaller devices that are easy to transport. According to the CDC, antigen test sensitivity varies depending on the time in the course of one’s infection, but is considered to have “moderate to high” sensitivity during peak viral load. Compared to molecular tests, antigen tests are more likely to generate false negative results, especially when performed on people who don’t have symptoms.
Antibody (results within 2 days)
Antibody or serology tests look for antibodies in your blood that fight the virus that causes COVID-19. Antibodies are proteins created by your immune system that help you fight off infections. They are made after you have been infected or have been vaccinated against an infection. Antibody tests should generally not be used to diagnose a current infection with the virus that causes COVID-19.
