COVID-19 Rapid Testing

Rapid PCR COVID-19 Testing

The Rapid PCR Test is considered the best, fastest, effective, and highly accurate way of identifying many infectious diseases, including COVID-19. 

PCR tests can detect the disease even when your body contains a minimal amount of pathogens. It is a molecular test that examines your upper respiratory specimen. It has such a high sensitivity that it can detect tiny amounts of viruses. PCR tests can detect the disease even when your body contains a minimal amount of pathogens.

However, the Rapid Antigen Test for COVID is typically faster but is less sensitive than the PCR test. It detects bits of proteins on the surface of the virus called antigens. Rapid Antigen testing is not as accurate as PCR. A PCR test is crucial to preventing the spread of disease, but for this COVID-19 testing, a blood test carries minimal risk. A small bruise or pain may appear at the needle insertion site, but the symptoms will usually resolve within two days. Swabs may cause a tickle in your throat or cause you to cough. During a nasopharyngeal swab, you may feel coughed or gagged, but these symptoms usually subside within a few minutes.
