Taking ownership of our community by providing a safe, effective and efficient testing site and leading the fight on COVID-19.
We are offering a new method of screening that combines the benefits of antibody screening and viral particle testing to give you insight on your exposure status. Antibody screening is a method to detect your body’s immune response to COVID-19. We check for two antibodies – IgM and IgG. IgM levels rise in your blood between 3-7 days after exposure. IgG levels typically rise between 5-15 days after exposure and typically remain up to 4 months to a year. By checking both, we are assessing if you have had a response to COVID-19 recently or in the past. Viral particle screening checks your secretions for evidence that the virus is in your body. This represents an acute infection, however you may not have symptoms. This is important because your body may have not had time to produce antibodies to the virus. By combining both modalities, we are offering a superior screening. This will show if you actively have the virus, and if you were exposed recently or in the past. Our physician and team members believe that this valuable information should be available to everyone. We are trying to do our part in abating the fear around COVID-19.
A single finger prick is taken and applied to a testing kit, which gives us results on your antibodies.
A nasopharyngeal swab is taken and sent to the lab.
Our physician will then review all results and a representative will follow up with any discrepancies.
