Which Covid-19 Test is right for you?
PCR, Antigen or IgG/IgM
Covid Solutions is now offering Coronavirus (COVID-19) In-Home nasal swab Antigen and IgM/IgG antibody testing. Covid Solutions currently offers several options for COVID-19 tests that identify if individuals are infected or may have been infected with the Coronavirus. Testing is an important part of health and safety, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to get critical information. We do this by testing large groups as well as individuals in the comfort of their own homes.
In general, if you want Covid-19 test results quickly, the rapid antigen or antibody test are your best options. If you need to know if you have been exposed to the virus in the past, the antibody blood test is the way to go. It’s not uncommon for people to take both tests at the same time.
Nasal Swab Test $199 per Person
The nasal swab test is performed to detect a current active COVID-19 viral infection. This standard viral PCR lab test determines if you are currently infected with COVID-19. The results are available within 24 hours. This is for patients that are currently exhibiting Covid-19 symptoms.
Rapid 15 Minute Covid-19 Antigen Test $179 per Person
The 15-minute Covid-19 antigen test is a nasal swab test that detects certain proteins which can indicate if you have had a past Covid infection or are currently infected. This test is perfect for individuals who want to make sure they are not infected with Corona Virus right away. With the 15-minute antigen test, you will be able to know right away if you need to isolate yourself.
Antibody Blood Test $149 per Person
Antibody tests can help screen asymptomatic individuals who might have had past exposure after 5 days by detecting antibodies in the blood, which are produced in response to a specific infection like COVID-19. Antibody blood testing can be performed via rapid testing of IgM/IgG antibody with a finger prick blood test. This is a quick prick blood test, similar to a diabetes blood sugar test, performed under the surveillance of a trained healthcare professional. A minuscule amount of blood will be taken from your finger and placed in the Covid Antibody Cassette of diagnosis. If positive must be confirmed with PCR test.
The antibody blood test can also determine if you have had the virus previously based on whether your immune system has created antibodies to it. Testing positive for the antibodies may mean you have developed some immunity to the virus, but how much and for how long is still uncertain.
