What’s the difference between the swab test and antibody blood test?
Rapid Swab Test at our Urgent Care Clinics or COVID-19 Testing Clinics: The rapid test performed with a swab of your nasal passages to determine if you currently have an active COVID-19 infection. Tests are run at our in-clinic lab and results are same day.
PCR Swab Test at our COVID-19 Testing Clinics Only: The nasopharyngeal swab is a molecular RT-PCR test performed with a deep swab of your nasal passages to determine if you currently have an active COVID-19 infection. Tests are sent to a local lab and results are next day (via the COVID-19 Testing Clinics) but results times at our urgent care clinics vary based on lab volume.
Rapid Antibody Blood Test at our Urgent Care Clinics and COVID-19 Testing Clinics: The COVID-19 rapid test qualitatively detects and differentiates IgM and IgG antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 in blood. (Positive results indicate a current, recent or prior infection. There can be false positives and false negatives). Results are provided during your visit.
