Any person in New York who wishes to be tested for COVID-19 may be tested. Esco Lab conducts COVID-19 tests in accordance with the guidelines from New York State Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). According to the CDC, the median incubation period of COVID-19 is approximately 5 days from exposure, but may range anywhere between 2-14 days. Esco Lab recommends that patients schedule testing at least 5 days from suspected COVID19 exposure for more accurate result.
By using our booking services, you agree to our terms of use.

OPTION #1: 
COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test

Book your Antigen Test ($100)

      Fast and accurate VIRUS ANTIGEN detection. This is a diagnostic test. This test is performed and analyzed on site by Esco Lab. Results may be available in as little as 15 minutes. The estimate time for official lab reporting result will be within 24 hours.

      ***Ideal for quick identification of possible contraction through exposure, or general personal inquiry of COVID-19 contraction status.

      If you need official results promptly, please inform us immediately so we can coordinate with you. This offer is only available through booking with ESCO LAB.

      COVID-19 RT-Molecular Test (Nucleic Amplification)

      Book your RT-Molecular Test

      ($160)

      Higher accuracy than the antigen test. This is a molecular test. This test is performed and analyzed on site by Esco Lab. Results may be available in as little as 15 minutes with official lab reporting within 24 hours.

      ***Ideal for work-related clearance, patients traveling to foreign countries, as a NAAT based test is typically required, such as our rapid molecular test or a traditional PCR. Patients should always verify with the destination or foreign embassy as well as work requirements to ensure they’re in compliance with any requirements.

      Limited to availability. If we cannot accommodate testing your sample on site then we will send the sample out to one of our external labs. This may cause delays within 24-48 hours to release results.

      OPTION #3: 
      COVID-19 RT-PCR Test 

      Book your RT-PCR Test 
      ($200)

      The gold standard. This is the most accurate type of COVID-19 test. It is performed by on-site specialists and analyzed on site. Unlike other labs doing PCR tests, our analysis can be completed in as little as 1 hour opposed to 1-5 days. 

      ***Ideal for work-related clearance, patients traveling to foreign countries, as a molecular based test is typically required. Patients should always verify with the destination or foreign embassy as well as work requirements to ensure they’re in compliance with any requirements.

      OPTION #4:

      COVID-19 ANTIBODY TEST  

      Book your Antibody Test
      ($120)

      This is a rapid point of care test that identifies if a person has COVID-19 antibodies. It helps identify people who may have been infected and have recovered from a COVID-19 infection. It screens for IgG and IgM antibodies specific to SARS-CoV-2 from a blood sample, obtained via finger prick.

      ***Antibodies can be detected in your body 2-3 weeks after infection from COVID-19, so this test is ideal for people who think they may have had a COVID-19 infection in the past. Results can be delivered within 15 minutes.
