Yes! Our antibody tests do test for spike-protein antibodies which are found post-vaccine.
You will be called with your rapid results (positive or negative) within 3 hours. If you still did not receive a call after 3 hours, you may call 443-228-6004 or email here. Note that if you are positive on a rapid, a PCR test will not also be processed. All rapids also get swabbed for PCR. There is no such thing as only getting a rapid.
The “gold” question these days. According to CDC guidelines, if you are five days after an exposure, you can then get tested with a PCR (and only PCR) and if it is negative, you can end quarantine after day 7. Some schools or institutions have adopted stricter policies though.
You can choose our new Rapid PCR test. This is a full PCR test that results in 2-3 hours.
Typically, 24-48 hours. If results are needed faster, ask us when you arrive about expediting your test or you can choose a rapid PCR.
Rapid tests are faster although not as accurate as the PCR or overnight tests. The claimed accuracy of any rapid test is only when used in specific cases. Namely, the patient is experiencing clear Covid-19 symptoms for at least 24 hours. Otherwise, the accuracy rate falls dramatically. Rapid tests should not be used for travel, visitation or anything outside the above criteria. PCR tests are far more reliable and accurate. The lab we use has excellent turnaround time and if needed, can expedite results to 18 hours or less.
All rapids are also swabbed for PCR.
Yes, both our rapid and regular tests are PCR tests and valid for all travel purposes. Documentation is provided for all test results.
