COVID-19 RT-Molecular Test (Nucleic Amplification)Book via Esco Lab RT-Molecular Test
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.
This is a highly accurate molecular test. It is performed by on-site specialists but the sample is transported to an external high complexity laboratory. Expect results and reporting within 1-5 days.
Please note that the minimum patient age for Prescryptive tests is 18-years-old.
COVID-19 ANTIBODY TEST
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.
