PCR tests detect disease by looking for traces of the virus' genetic material on a mucus sample collected from the nose. PCR tests are sent out with results typically in 36-48 hours.
Gold Standard PCR testing can detect the genetic information (RNA) of the Novel Coronavirus even if the virus is present in extremely small amounts. This means it is possible to diagnose someone as positive for COVID-19 even when their sample contains a very small amount of virus.
A rapid antigen test uses a mucus sample from the nose and can be analyzed in-house with results typically in 20 minutes.
No test is 100% accurate. Rapid tests have a higher chance of missing an active infection than the RT-PCR test.
If a rapid antigen test shows a negative result indicating you do not have an active coronavirus infection, our physicians suggest a follow-up PCR test to confirm the result.

A COVID-19 antibody blood test can detect if a person has antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
COVID-19 antibody tests can help identify people who may have been infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus or have recovered from the COVID-19 infection. Vaccinated patients would show antibodies as well once the body has had enough time to mount an immune response to the vaccine.
Antibodies are proteins created by your body's immune system soon after you have been infected or vaccinated.
