Which COVID-19 Test Is Right For You?

The COVID-19 swab test is right for people who experienced active symptoms. This test is carried out via a nasopharyngeal swab. We will advise you of the exact time for testing during the tele-visit.

This is a molecular test. It detects the virus's genetic material using a lab technique known as the reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction. In this test, we will insert a long nasal swab to collect a fluid sample from the back of the nose. In some situations, our medical professional may insert a long swab into the back of the throat or ask you to spit in the tube to provide a saliva sample The RT-PCR tests are high in accuracy if performed correctly. And that's what you can count on us for.

An antigen test for COVID-19 is conducted to detect certain proteins in the virus. We use a long nasal swab to conduct the test to get the fluid.

Sometimes antigen tests can provide results in minutes, but they may be sent to a lab for proper analysis in other cases.

Also referred to as serology testing, it is carried on patients who have fully recovered from COVID-19 or are asymptomatic. It is performed by drawing blood., and used to detect past infections.
