DIFFERENT RAPID COVID-19 TEST PRODUCTS:
SARS-COV-2 PCR - IDNOW by Abbott is a test based on finding evidence of the virus using Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technology.
This technology allows for the detection of even minute amounts of the virus is more thought to be accurate than Rapid Antigen detection.
It is estimated by different groups that due to sample collection limitations up to 30% of the cases will still be missed (false negative).
SARS-COV-2 AG - Sofia2 by Quidel is a test based on finding the evidence of virus using Antigen binding (rapid antigen/immunology).
This technology is less reliable and requires a relatively larger quantity of virus, thus can only be used on symptomatic individuals.
It is estimated that this test may produce both false-positives and false-negative (miss the illness) results.
RAPID COVID TESTING ACCURACY:
Rapid covid19 tests are considered inferior to sent-out PCR tests in accuracy, especially false negative rate.
To get better yield we send all rapid-negative out to the outside lab for confirmatory testing.
RAPID COVID-19 TEST TURNAROUND TIME (TAT):
Results are back anywhere between 5-25 minutes depending on the manufacturer.
Most people wait in the parking lot to receive their results.
We will report your results via text and email as well.
Confirmatory testing results will be available in 24-72hours.
