PCR COVID Test
The nose swab PCR COVID Test is one of the most accurate and reliable methods for diagnosing COVID-19. If the test results are positive, it means you most likely have the virus. Conversely, if the results are negative, it means you were probably not infected when you were tested. If you have symptoms of the virus or suspect that you were exposed to it, you should get tested at All Health Medical Centre as soon as possible. It’s the only way to ensure that your health hasn’t been compromised.
Rapid Antibody COVID Test
With all of the information and news floating around about COVID-19 testing, it’s no wonder that there’s so much confusion about these tests and how they differ. The rapid antibody COVID test detects antibodies in the blood when you’ve been infected with the virus or vaccinated against it. Once these antibodies are made, they can protect you from getting re-infected or severely ill afterwards. Whether they are made because of the infection or the vaccine, these antibodies will diminish over time.
Rapid Antigen COVID Test
The Rapid COVID test or rapid antigen test for COVID-19 is a quicker way for the All Health Medical Centre technicians to determine if you have the virus. The results are usually ready within 15 minutes to a half hour. Up until recently, most of these rapid diagnostic tests have been antigen-based. They are administered using a nasal or throat swab to detect coronavirus-related proteins and are useful for determining when an individual is near or at peak infection status.
