What is Rapid COVID Testing?
We now have the Rapid RT-PCR test at BH Concierge Health. This is a nasal swab RT-PCR test but we obtain results in 30-60 minutes. This is a huge advantage compared to 6-24 hours for RT-PCR performed at other labs. This test is highly accurate and can be performed in people’s homes, workplaces or at our drive thru. It can also be used for flights/travel. The rapid antibody results are available in 15 minutes and reveal if antibodies are present and if there has been a past exposure. The rapid COVID PCR is the gold standard in testing and is run by a molecular lab that has a EUA from the FDA.
The rapid antibody kit is a quick, safe, and noninvasive method to check if you have Coronavirus antibodies. When exposed to any type of microbe, the human body produces an immune response. White blood cells are activated and begin the fight against the infection. Part of your immune response depends on the production of antibodies that battle infections.
The rapid COVID test kit detects antibodies against COVID-19 in your bloodstream. There are two types of antibodies that the human body produces when exposed to COVID-19: IgM and IgG. IgM antibodies typically rise 1 week after infection whereas IgG starts rising 2 weeks after infection.
How long does it take to get results for Rapid COVID Test?
Unlike other facilities that take 7-12 to provide results or other rapid tests that do not provide accurate results, we are able to provide accurate results within 1-2 hours. For the antibody finger prick test, results are available within 15 minutes.
Which rapid COVID antibody tests does your office utilize?
We strive to provide only the best COVID-19 tests available on the market and are constantly researching and updating the testing provided to ensure that you receive the most reliable and accurate test available.
Unfortunately, there are many test kits out there with inaccurate manufacture’s claims. These test kits have not been independently validated and are unreliable and inaccurate. We are currently utilizing rapid test kits when available manufactured by Healgen which has a very high sensitivity of close to a 100% and close to a 97% specificity, we are also using Cellex when available.
The rapid COVID tests that we are currently utilizing have been granted EUA by the FDA or have applied for EUA pending status. Rapid COVID test kits have been used and verified as a reliable testing method to test exposure to the Coronavirus in other countries of the world. The FDA strongly advises that, while still under investigation, individuals who take the rapid test still need to undergo the nasal swab test as well to rule out an active infection.
How will I benefit from an antibody test?
An antibody test can help you learn if you are infected, if you had been infected and are a carrier of antibodies and if so, around when you were infected. Testing is recommended for people who think they may have been exposed to COVID-19, or for people who:
- Travel or need to get on a flight
- Live in an area where there is community spread
- Have had close proximity to someone diagnosed with COVID-19
- High-risk individuals, or have exposure to high-risk individuals
- People employed in public jobs
- For some peace of mind
No Consult or Referral Needed
You do not need a referral or a consult to have a COVID-19 test performed.
Our physicians can provide a telehealth consult for you to discuss your symptoms or history should you need. Our office can schedule an appointment for a drive through rapid COVID test as well as PCR at our office parking. If you cannot leave your home, our team also performs house calls and can visit you in your home or work for rapid COVID testing.
What to do after getting tested?
After you get tested, the lab will notify you of your results via a secure and encrypted email. Our physician and staff can provide you the information in regards to the meaning of the test results along with informative links for further reading and learning. Our physician can consult with you if you like as well and provide you with clear instructions on how to proceed next depending on your result.
If you are Coronavirus negative, you will be able to go back home but should self-isolate to minimize the risk of infection. If you are Coronavirus positive, there are two options to choose from based on the severity of your symptoms.
If your symptoms are mild, you can go back home to recover but will need to self-isolate and wear protective clothing like face masks and gloves when interacting with anyone at home. If your symptoms are severe, you will be referred to a hospital where you will be admitted and treated accordingly.
