NO COST TESTING
If you are being mandated to test your staff, students, patients, customers, attendees on a daily, weekly, monthly bases we can take that burden from you.
At No Cost to you we can provide medical professionals to come to you and provide testing. Be it PCR Testing (gold standard), Antigen or Antibody.
We are also have many advanced collection methods, not merely nasal swabs. Shallow nasal swabs, oral swabs, oral rinses.
We have both POC testing and OTC testing too.
We can provide our services to groups of 50 to thousands. Available in the lower 50 states, minus
PCR "Molecular" TEST
Not all molecular tests use the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), but PCR serves as the mainstay of COVID-19 diagnostic testing.
Molecular tests detect genetic material – the RNA – of the coronavirus and are sensitive enough to need only a very tiny amount of it.
The sample is collected with a nasal or throat swab and they tend to take hours to provide results. Good PCR tests require a good lab to process and are close to 100% accurate.
However, not all molecular tests, including PCR methods, are perfect. Some lesser testing platforms have reported false negative rates as high as 15% to 20%.
“They are able to pick up very small amounts of viral RNA very early in an infection, so there is a low chance for false negatives, including among pre-symptomatic and asymptomatic COVID-19 cases,” Tran said.
The sensitivity of molecular methods can be a double-edged sword. In some cases, it can still detect the virus’ genetic material after a patient has recovered from a COVID-19 infection and is no longer contagious.
Plus, this coronavirus is still so new to science, nothing is certain.
“PCR is considered the gold standard for many viruses we’ve seen in the past,” Tran said. “But we can’t be certain with SARS-CoV-2. Clearly, we have a lot to learn about this virus and we are all learning in real time.”
"Antibody" Serology Testing
Serology testing for SARS-CoV-2 is at increased demand in order to better quantify the number of cases of COVID-19, including those that may be asymptomatic or have recovered. Serology tests are blood-based tests that can be used to identify whether people have been exposed to a particular pathogen by looking at their immune response. In contrast, the RT-PCR tests currently being used globally to diagnose cases of COVID-19 can only indicate the presence of viral material during infection and will not indicate if a person was infected and subsequently recovered. These tests can give greater detail into the prevalence of a disease in a population by identifying individuals who have developed antibodies to the virus.
Until now, the majority of rapid diagnostic tests have been antigen tests. They are taken with a nasal or throat swab and detect a protein that is part of the coronavirus. These tests are particularly useful for identifying a person who is at or near peak infection. Antigen tests are less expensive and generally faster. Only slightly less accurate than a PCR Test.
“You don’t need complex and expensive test kits to detect the antigens,” Tran said. “That makes them cheaper and faster. The problem is, there is a little lag time between when someone gets infected and when the antigens show up.”
That means, if a person is not near peak infection – but is still contagious – the tests may come back negative. Depending on the quality of the antigen test and the test takers, false negatives could be as high as 20%.
“Here’s a good way to look at this,” Tran said. “The coronavirus replicates itself by putting its genetic material inside our cells. If you’re testing that person at the stage when the virus is still replicating inside the cells, it has not produced sufficient protein or shed in large enough amounts to be detected yet by antigen testing.”
