What is an RT-PCR?

RT-PCR is the acronym for reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction, a type of nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) for SARS-CoV-2. This diagnostic test can detect RNA specific to the coronavirus within days of infection. Samples are typically collected through nasal, throat, or nasopharyngeal swabs. They can also be collected through saliva spits. The samples are then sent to a laboratory for analysis.

Why take an RT-PCR test?

In most countries, the RT-PCR is the only test accepted for international travel and returning to the workplace. Even asymptomatic people are required to take the test for travel, work, and health clearance.

What is an antigen test?

An antigen test detects specific proteins bound to the surface of a virus. Using a nasal swab to obtain a sample, antigen test can produce accurate results in minutes.  Samples can be collected and processed outside a laboratory using the highest quality antigen test kits manufactured specifically for clinical laboratories.

Why take the antigen test?

Taking the antigen test is one of the fastest and most convenient ways to know whether you are infected with the coronavirus. The samples can be analyzed at the point of collection so you get your test results almost instantly.
