Rapid COVID-19 Test
What is it?
The Rapid COVID-19 Test detects the presence of viral proteins (antigens) expressed by the COVID-19 virus in a sample from the patient’s respiratory tract. If the target antigen is present in sufficient concentrations, it will bind to specific antibodies fixed to a paper strip enclosed in a plastic casing and generate a visually detectable signal, typically within 15 minutes. The antigen(s) detected are expressed only when the virus is actively replicating; therefore, such tests are best used to identify acute or early infection.
PCR COVID-19 Test
What is it?
PCR testing is still considered the gold standard of testing for COVID-19. It is the preferred testing method due to its optimal sensitivity to the virus. Such tests can detect COVID-19 nucleic acid and are used to diagnose an active COVID-19 infection. PCR tests can only be processed at certified labs.
