THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN RAPID PCR & LAB PCR
WHAT RAPID PCR TESTS ARE USED FOR
ARE RAPID PCR TESTS ACCURATE?
In clinical trials, the PCR rapid test has been shown to be over 99% accurate in detecting the presence of the coronavirus. This makes it an essential tool for helping to control the spread of the virus.
The PCR rapid test is also quick and easy to administer, making it a valuable tool for screening large numbers of people.
WHAT IS AN ANTIBODY TEST FOR COVID-19?
Antibodies are proteins that your body produces in response to an infection. The test involves taking a blood sample from a vein in your arm and sending it to a laboratory for analysis.
The PCR rapid test can also be used to detect antibodies, but it is less accurate than the standard blood test. They work by amplifying any fragments of the virus that may be present in the sample, but they cannot distinguish between live and inactive viruses. As a result, PCR tests can sometimes produce false-positive results.
WHEN YOU SHOULD GET TESTED FOR COVID-19
THE FASTEST WAY TO GET YOUR COVID RESULTS
If you're looking for a reliable, rapid PCR test for COVID-19, Newport Center Urgent Care is the place to go. We offer a comprehensive range of testing services that can help you get the information you need quickly and efficiently.
If you need testing after that time, we ask that you please park in one of the designated parking spots, (right by the front door), and call the clinic to let them know you need a test. One of our staff will then meet you at your car to perform your patient intake and testing. This way, we help prevent anyone with possible COVID symptoms, (or exposure), from coming into the clinic and potentially creating more exposure for our staff and our patients.
