COVID-19 PCR Same Day Testing

A PCR test is a viral test that tells you if you have a current infection. Two types of viral tests can be used: nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs) and antigen tests. NAATs detect genetic material (nucleic acids). NAATs for SARS-CoV-2 specifically identify the RNA (ribonucleic acid) sequences that comprise the genetic material of the virus.(source: CDC)

 

At DOC-AID Urgent Care our Laboratory has the latest technology which allows us to process PCR COVID-19 tests in-house, providing same-day results in most cases. PCR tests are considered the gold standard and rely on DNA amplification to produce consistent, reliable results. Results usually ready same day.

COVID-19 PCR Testing Outside Lab

A PCR test is a viral test that tells you if you have a current infection. Two types of viral tests can be used: nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs) and antigen tests. NAATs detect genetic material (nucleic acids). NAATs for SARS-CoV-2 specifically identify the RNA (ribonucleic acid) sequences that comprise the virus's genetic material. (source: CDC)

 

In some cases, a sample may be sent to an outside laboratory for processing. Results for these tests take around 2-3 business days (weekends and holidays may delay processing). PCR Tests are considered the gold standard and rely on DNA amplification to produce consistent, reliable results. Results are usually ready in 2-3 days.

COVID-19 Testing for Travel

Verify with your airline and destination what test they accept, how soon before departure you need results, and what documentation you must present. It is your responsibility to make sure you follow the test requirements for your travels.

 

If you are traveling soon and need your results quickly, DOC-AID offers a PCR COVID test that is processed in-house. Results are usually ready the same day you test. Results from tests done at closing may not be available until the following morning, so please plan accordingly.

 

COVID testing for non-medical purposes is usually not covered by health insurance. We do offer a self-pay option. Please call our office (956) 523-0966 for pricing and more information.

COVID-19 Test For Travel Patient Fact Sheet

 

COVID-19 Antigen Testing Same Day Testing

Antigen tests are immunoassays that detect the presence of a specific viral antigen, which implies a current viral infection. Antigen tests for SARS-CoV-2 are generally less sensitive than real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and other nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs) for detecting the presence of viral nucleic acid. (Source: CDC). Results are usually ready on the same day.

COVID-19 Antibody Testing (In-House Processing)

Antibody or serology tests look for antibodies in your blood to determine if you had a past infection with the virus that causes COVID-19.

  • Antibodies are proteins created by your body’s immune system soon after you have been infected or vaccinated.
  • Antibodies help you fight off infections and can protect you from getting that disease again. How long this protection may last is different for each disease and each person.

 

Antibody tests should not be used to diagnose a current infection with the virus that causes COVID-19.  An antibody test may not show if you have a current infection because it can take 1–3 weeks after the infection for your body to make antibodies. (Source: CDC) Results are usually ready the same day.
