Types of testing available:

Molecular Testing (RT-PCR)

Samples will be collected from participants and sent to our CLIA laboratory for RT-PCR testing using Thermo Fisher’s Applied Biosystems TaqPath™ Assay technology. This highly sensitive diagnostic test provides fast and reliable results. Through this testing, positive results are indicative of a current SARS-CoV-2 infection.

Antibody Testing

Antibody Testing is a serological test for the qualitative detection of antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 in the blood. A blood draw is required to collect a sample for an antibody test. The presence of the antibodies can identify participants that may have been infected at a previous point in time.
