COVID-19 Rapid Testing
Types of COVID-19 Tests
RAPID ANTIGEN: An antigen is a substance recognized by the body’s immune system and in return the body makes antibodies. An antigen test basically looks for those fragments of antigens within a person’s body to see if they’re infected with the virus. Antigens show ACTIVE infection or viral PRESENCE.
RAPID ANTIBODY: An antibody is a substance the body makes in response to exposure to a viral infection. These antibodies are present after you recover from an infection (or vaccine) and if you are exposed again to the same virus, you do not get symptoms or re-infected. These anti-bodies reflect both ACTIVE or PAST infection (IgM and IgG levels).
PCR TESTS: PCR tests detect genetic material from the virus. The specimen is retrieved from a q tip swab inserted through the nose to the back of the throat. For qualified persons, specimens are sent to a laboratory. Results can take anywhere from three to five days to result.
