What is Coronavirus?
COVID-19 is a new strain of the virus that belongs to the Coronavirus family. This family causes many diseases such as the common cold and the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS)among others.
Transmission of the Coronavirus can happen from animal to man. The spread of the virus occurs when an infected person sneezes or coughs. The virus uses mucous membranes like the eyes, nose, and mouth to enter the body.
Signs and Symptoms
The three core symptoms of Coronavirus infection are fever, cough, and shortness of breath.
If patients are not treated appropriately, complications like pneumonia, kidney failure, and death may follow.
What is Rapid COVID Testing?
The rapid COVID testing we offer is for the 15 min rapid antigen test as well as for same day and 24 hour RT-PCR test and 15 min antibody test. The rapid COVID-19 antigen test results are available in 15 minutes to 1 hour depending on our schedule. The PCR test results are available usually within 24 hours but in some cases can take up to 24 hour to 48 hours and our emailed to you directly from our lab. Rapid COVID PCR test and antigen test reveals if you have an active infection. The rapid antibody results are available in 15 minutes and reveal if antibodies are present and if there has been a past exposure. The rapid COVID RT-PCR is the gold standard in testing and is run by a molecular lab that has a EUA from the FDA.
The rapid antibody kit is a quick, safe, and noninvasive method to check if you have Coronavirus antibodies. When exposed to any type of microbe, the human body produces an immune response. White blood cells are activated and begin the fight against the infection. Part of your immune response depends on the production of antibodies that battle infections.
The rapid COVID-19 antibody kit detects antibodies against COVID-19 in your bloodstream. There are two types of antibodies that the human body produces when exposed to COVID-19: IgM and IgG. IgM antibodies typically rise 5 days after infection whereas IgG starts rising 2 weeks after infection. Our rapid antibody kits will provide you with both IgM and IgG results.
How does it work?
The rapid COVID antigen test kits use an analyzer to process the the nasal swab specimen to detect the presence of covid-19 infection and reveal results in 15 minutes. The antibody test kit looks very similar to standard pregnancy tests. It only requires a blood sample to detect antibodies against the Coronavirus in your bloodstream. Our physicians will perform a simple finger prick, obtain your blood sample, and add a few drops of your blood sample into the testing well to check if the antibodies are present.
