Amidst the ongoing pandemic, you may be considering getting tested if you are experiencing symptoms, or simply to give yourself peace of mind before traveling or returning to work. At Rapid IV, we are able to administer a series of COVID-19 tests from the convenience of your home, workplace or even hotel room. Simply let us know where and when is best for you and our team of medical professionals will be there at a stipulated time.
PCR RNA Real Time COVID-19 Test
The most common COVID-19 test known to the public, the PCR RNA real time COVID-19 test is also known as the nasal swab test. During the procedure, a swab will be placed in your nostrils. This can be slightly uncomfortable for some people, but it is a quick and painless process, with same-day results available to give you the all clear. This swab test works by detecting the nucleic acid from the SARS-CoV-2 virus in your upper and lower respiratory specimens.
COVID-19 SALIVADIRECT Real-Time RT-PCR, DNA
The SALIVADIRECT test was developed by the Yale School of Medicine and has been proven to reflect 100% clinical specificity and 94% clinical sensitivity. As implied by its name, a sample of saliva is collected from the participant. This test is considered complex as a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) certified laboratory and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) instruments are required to carry out the testing. The COVID-19 SALIVADIRECT Real-Time RT-PCR, DNA test is an alternative to nasal swabbing due to swab shortages and comes with the additional advantage of protecting healthcare workers from potential exposure to sick patients.
Rapid Antibodies COVID-19 Test
The Rapid Antibodies COVID-19 test is recommended for those who would like to find out if they have any past or present infections. 15 minutes is all it takes to get you a result. During the procedure, your finger will be pricked gently to draw a sample of blood. This test works by identifying IgG and IgM antibodies that are specific to SARS-CoV-2 in a reliable manner.
