Tests Offered (from website)

PCR Nasal Swab:
RPP (Respiratory Pathogen Panel) uses an advanced pathogen panel to detect COVID-19. It is a comprehensive assay that detects with a greater than 99.9% accuracy.


Rapid Antigen Test:
Rapid COVID-19 test that allows patients to get preliminary screening test results the same-day. This test is available strictly as an add-on to patients who are getting a PCR test, as it is considered to be inferior when it comes to accuracy. We have found the rapid test gives peace of mind to patients who want initial results immediately, but need to administer both tests to guarantee an accurate result.

Roche Antibody Testing:
Determines if an individual has previously been exposed to the virus and has developed antibodies. This test provides 99.8% specificity, which is greater than previously available antibody tests. The blood draw will be administered by Health Lab phlebotomists and sent to our in-house lab for testing.

COVID 19 testing results generated in 2 to 3 days.
