Diagnostic COVID-19 Test Information
The RT-PCR COVID-19 Test has been released under FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 (the virus responsible for COVID-19 infection), and can be used in applications that require molecular/ RT-PCR testing. Please consult your state health department for additional information regarding specific uses (such as pre and post travel requirements). This test is an RT-PCR, molecular and NAAT test which satisfies most travel requirements; however, it is the purchaser’s responsibility to verify the test will be accepted for travel prior to purchase. Please note that most travel restrictions require that a traveler’s test specimen IS COLLECTED within 72 hours prior to arrival at a destination.
One of the following tests will be utilitized for the Expedited RT-PCR COVID-19 Test:
DiaCarta QuantiVirus SARS-CoV-2 Multiplex Test Kit
Quidel Lyra Direct SARS-CoV-2 Assay
Bioeksen Bio-Speedy Direct RT-QPCR SARS-CoV-2
Rapid Antigen COVID-19 Test Information
All of Covid Clinic’s antigen test offerings utilize tests that have received emergency use authorization from the FDA.
For Quidel’s Sofia SARS Antigen FIA Test and Luminostics Clip COVID Rapid Antigen Test, the specimen is collected by a lower nasal swab (anterior nares). The cotton swab does not need to be inserted far into the nose, and is rotated in a circle around the entire inside edge of each nostril at least three times. Results are generally available within 30 minutes and delivered to the patient via email (with the individual’s consent).
For Access Bio’s CareStart COVID-19 Antigen Test, the specimen is collected by a lower nasal swab (anterior nares). Results are generally available within 30 minutes and delivered to the patient via email (with the individual’s consent).
