COVID-19 testing

Dr. Roma recommends getting tested for COVID-19 if you have been exposed to a person who tested positive for COVID-19. For more accurate results, wait 5 days from exposure before getting tested. After the test, quarantine yourself until you receive test results.

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.

Pixel by LabCorp - Covid-19 At-Home Kits

https://www.pixel.labcorp.com

https://www.pixel.labcorp.com/at-home-test-kits/covid-19-test-home-collection-kit

 

Available to individuals 18 or older who meet eligibility criteria for Covid-19 testing.

11/19 update from their website: Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases, kits are currently reserved for individuals experiencing symptoms or those who have been asked to get tested by a healthcare provider, public health department, or contact investigator. 

Pixel will send you an at-home collection kit to collect your nasal swab sample and ship it back to the lab.  The lab will test your sample for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes coronavirus disease (also called COVID-19), a respiratory illness.

You must be 18 or older to take this test. The average time to deliver results is currently 1-2 days from when your sample is received at the lab.  The labs process samples seven days a week. Check with your local FedEx for pick up and drop off schedules.

Please note this test does not detect antibodies or immunity; it is designed to determine active infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. For more information on antibody testing visit LabCorp.com.

 

What Type of Test is This?

The Pixel by LabCorp™ COVID-19 at-home kit is a molecular test, also known as a reverse polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test or a nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT).  This test detects the presence or absence of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
