What are the COVID-19 Rapid Tests?

Antigen Test

The COVID-19 antigen test is a Sofia 2 SARS antigen test manufactured by Quidel. According to the FDA, the antigen test detects the virus by looking for proteins from the virus. This test is a highly specific test, but less sensitive than the molecular tests.

Molecular Tests

Rapid Testing LLC offers two types of COVID-19 molecular rapid tests: ID NOW molecular test manufactured by Abbott and an Xpert Xpress CoV-2/Flu/RSV molecular rapid PCR test manufactured by Cepheid.

In general, molecular tests detect the virus by looking for genetic material from the virus. Molecular tests are highly sensitive and highly specific. The Abbott ID NOW and RT-PCR tests are also known as an NAAT test (nucleic acid amplification test). These NAAT-approved tests are widely accepted by airlines that require an NAAT test.

According to Abbott, the ID NOW molecular test uses “isothermal technology, proprietary enzymes, and constant temperature control to achieve the fastest available RNA amplification.”

The Cepheid rapid PCR COVID test “uses automated in vitro diagnostic testing for qualitative detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2,” according to the FDA.

If your test is for travel, please verify with your destination of travel which test(s) are accepted for your travel itinerary.  Every country and state has different requirements. ​We apologize, but Rapid Testing LLC and Advanced Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine are not responsible if the ​incorrect test is ordered​.​

COVID-19 Treatment with Medical Visit

Whether you test positive or negative, our providers are here for you until you are feeling better. To help monitor your health, we recommend checking in with us virtually every 1-2 days until you are no longer experiencing symptoms. If we suspect the development of pneumonia or other severe symptoms, antibiotics or additional medical treatment might be required. Please schedule a telehealth visit to meet with our providers. We will recommend re-testing as needed.

Antibody Testing

Antibody blood tests, also called antibody tests, check your blood by looking for antibodies, which show if you had a previous infection with the virus. Antibodies are proteins that help fight off infections. Depending on when someone was infected and the timing of the test, the test may not find antibodies in someone with a current COVID-19 infection.

Please call us at 303-659-9700 or live chat us to schedule an antibody test. Testing is available for ages 17 and older.
