Covid-19 PCR Testing (Nasal Swab) Results in 1-2 business days (Sent to outside lab). Fee $205 or $60 with insurance
Covid-19 PCR Testing (Nasal Swab) Results in 1 Hour. Fee $295
SARS-CoV-2 RNA (COVID-19), Qualitative NAAT – The SARS-CoV-2 RNA (COVID-19), Nucleic-acid Amplification Test (NAAT) is a qualitative multi-target molecular diagnostics test that aids in the detection of COVID-19. This test is intended to be performed on respiratory specimens collected from individuals.
The PCR test can determine if you are currently infected and can be used for traveling purposes.
A Detected result is considered a positive test result for COVID-19. This indicates that RNA from SARS-CoV-2 was detected and that the patient is considered infected with the virus and presumed to be contagious. If requested by public health authorities, specimens will be send for additional testing.
A Not Detected (negative) test result for this test means that SARS-CoV-2 RNA was not present in the specimen above the limit of detection. However, it does not rule out the possibility of COVID-19 and should not be used as the sole basis for patient management decisions.
An Inconclusive result means not all of the testing targets were detected. This could be due to a sample with viral concentrations near the limit of detection of the test or other factors. An additional sample collection may be considered.
Laboratory test results should always be considered in the context of clinical observations and epidemiological data in making a final diagnosis and patient management decisions.
Covid-19 Saliva PCR Testing. Results in 1-2 business days. Fee $199
Covid-19 PCR Saliva Test allow a patient to spit into a tube rather than get their nose or throat swabbed. Saliva tests may be more comfortable for some people and may be safer for health care workers who can be farther away during the sample collection. It requires a self or facility collection. This test can be used for travel, returning to work or to see if you are currently infected. Fasting is not required. There are no dietary or medicinal restrictions to take this test. This test is also conducted in order to return to work or to travel out of the country. Results from the Covid-19 PCR Saliva Test are generally available within 1 to 2 business days after the specimen is received by the lab. LABS TO GO offer a nationwide Covid-19 PCR Self-Collection Saliva Testing kit that is fast and reliable which can also be ordered online https://labstogo.com/self-collection-saliva-test/
Covid-19 Antibody Testing (Blood Draw) Results in 1- 2 business days. Fee $170
LABS TO GO is now performing COVID-19 antibody testing using blood serum samples through the use of several technologies. Through these tests we are able to detect the presence of Immunoglobulin G (IgG) which is specific to COVID-19. If IgG is detected, it indicates either; previous exposure to COVID-19, a previous infection which may be resolved or in the stage of being resolved, and/or protection (protective immunity) from the infection. Antibody testing is also very useful to provide important information for epidemiology, as well as also in public health decision-making, such as in decisions regarding the safe return to work and other public activities.
Rapid Antigen Covid-19 Nasal Test. Results in 10 minutes. Fee $145
Nasopharyngeal (Nasal) swab specimen collection. This rapid test maybe used for travel in certain circumstances but please confirm with requesting agency. We also offer the Covid-19 Nasal PCR test that is required to fill traveling requirements. The rapid antigen use lateral flow assay., can be used for asymptomatic or symptomatic testing. Detects SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein antigen. Identify acute infection in symptomatic patients with 88.4% sensitivity and 100% specificity.
Results from one rapid test should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude SARS-CoV-2 infection or to inform infection status. Those who receive negative results should still continue to follow physical safety protocol to avoid exposure. Negative results do not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection, particularly in those who have been in contact with the virus. Frequent testing is recommended. If acute infection is suspected, direct testing for SARS-CoV-2 is necessary. For those with positive results, isolation and follow-up testing is recommended. Consider follow up testing with molecular (Lab Based PCR Covid Test) diagnostic to rule out infection in these individuals.
Mobile Testing available for residents and employers in the Hampton Roads area.
