COVID-19 PCR & Antibody Testing

24-Hour Results

Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is a beta coronavirus that causes the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and pandemic. SARS-CoV-2 is mainly transmitted through droplets and contact routes, and the virus infects human cells via binding to angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2). People who are infected with SARSCoV-2 may express signs and symptoms of acute respiratory illness, such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, but can also be asymptomatic. Symptomatic, pre-symptomatic and asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 carriers all can be potential sources for viral transmission.

As a CLIA certified high complexity clinical laboratory and your dedicated laboratory service provider, Northwest Medical Lab USA Inc is responding quickly to COVID-19 test needs and ready to provide you the following test options.

RT PCR Antigen Testing

A method useful for confirming the presence of an infection by SARS-COV-2

An oral swab is used to collect a sample from the patient

Samples then need to be preserved and transported to the lab for processing

Scientists in the laboratory extract the sample; then using PCR machines to identify if traces of SARS COVID-19 exist

After the results are finalized; they are emailed to patient

Rapid Antigen Testing Swab

A cost-effective method of testing the general public to help determine if they have presence of SAVS-COV or SARS-COV-2. Accurate results in 15 minutes

A nasopharyngeal swab collects a sample from the patient

Swab is placed on cassette and generates a result within 15-25 minutes

All supplies are included with the kit to perform this test

Results are overseen by our scientists and an official result is generated by our laboratory information system, then sent to the patient

Patients who test positive for COVID-19 should confirm their findings with an RT/PCR COVID test
