Protect Your Employees With On-Site COVID-19 Testing
Medella Urgent Care can perform three types of COVID-19 testing at your place of business:
1. Rapid Antigen Testing
If an employee has mild COVID-19 symptoms, such as a dry cough or low-grade fever, we can perform a relatively simple nasal swab test on site. After processing the sample with Quidel Corporation’s Sofia 2 SARS Antigen FIA, we can provide the results of this cost-effective diagnostic test within minutes, allowing you to find out whether the employee is infected and should self-isolate.
2. Polymerase Chain Reaction Testing
Widely considered to be the gold standard in SARS-CoV-2 detection, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing can detect genetic material specific to COVI9-19 within days of infection, even if symptoms are not present. As compared to the rapid antigen test, the turnaround time for the PCR test is longer, with the results typically available within 24 to 36 hours. However, the PCR test is generally more sensitive than the rapid antigen test, which means it is less likely to produce a false negative result.
3. Antibody Testing
Instead of detecting an active infection, antibody testing is used to detect a prior infection. Specifically, antibody testing checks a blood sample for certain antibodies produced by the body’s immune system in response to a COVID-19 exposure. A positive result is significant because it may suggest some level of protection against reinfection.
