For Acute infection: we are offering the most accurate and universally accepted SARS-COV-2 PCR test.
This test detects the genetic material of the virus using a lab technique called polymerase chain reaction (PCR). A fluid sample is collected from the back of your throat.
Note: The SARS-COV PCR test will not indicate immunity to COVID or detect antibodies.
For recent or past Covid infections: we are offering Covid IgM and IGG antibody testing. A small amount of venous blood sample is collected for this test.
A Positive IgM test indicates that you may have been currently infected. It is usually detectable within 1-7 days post-exposure when your immune system begins to respond to a Covid virus.
A Positive IgG test indicates that a person may be presently infected or have recovered from a COVID infection. Note: Positive IgG test results does not guarantee immunity.
