Rapid, streamlined, and accurate COVID-19 SARS-CoV-2 Testing
The rapid RT-PCR Accula™ SARS-CoV-2 Test received Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA for use in testing for the virus responsible for COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2). The easy-to-use test is among the most reliable COVID tests available and it provides results within about 30 minutes.
How is the Accula SARS-CoV-2 test administered?
The Accula COVID-19 test is administered with a sterile swab comfortably inserted into the patient’s nose. The swab is inserted into the left and right nostrils only until a slight resistance is felt, and it is then rotated against the nasal wall 10 times for an accurate reading. Most patients find this only mildly discomforting.
How fast will I get my results?
From administering the test to getting your results should take approximately 30 minutes. This waiting period is significantly shorter than any other available test on the market, which typically takes from 6 to 24 hours.
How often should I get tested for COVID-19?
While there is no officially established schedule for COVID-19 testing, most healthcare providers and government agencies recommend routine testing for it. People who operate in high-traffic or high-risk professions or who routinely service many members of the public will want to be routinely tested to keep themselves and their loved ones safe.
If you have been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 or you are planning to attend large public gatherings, ceremonies, or sporting events, or planning to travel by airplane, COVID-19 testing is usually recommended or required.
