(We recommend checking with your specific destination prior to booking an appointment).
Please call us when you arrive to the parking lot. Inform us the color and model of your car so we can locate you. A tester will meet you at your car.
You will be asked a short list of questions. We will hand you a nasal swab. You will twist it in each nostril for 15 seconds and insert into the test tube. The tester will take your sample into the lab.
Your sample will be triple checked by a lab technician. Please wait to receive your results via email.
Accurate detection of the virus in a covid PCR test means collecting a virus sample from sites in the body where the covid-19 virus thrives – the nose and throat.
Nasal Swab Sample Collection for Comfort
We collect our sample with an anterior nasal swab – lower down in the nose, so there is less discomfort for the person taking the covid-19 PCR test.
Sample Tested Onsite in a Molecular Lab for Same Day Results
The swab is sealed into a testing tube to avoid contamination and then passed to our onsite molecular lab for Covid testing near same day results.
You want to go to a Covid testing site that uses molecular PCR testing or RT-PCR testing, often known as PCR testing. PCR means Polymerase Chain Reaction. It refers to amplifying a DNA sample and then tagging it so you can accurately detect the presence of a virus, in this case, Covid-19, from the small sample taken with an anterior nasal swab.
A lab onsite means your sample is collected and taken straight for testing. Other arrangements involve a time delay in taking your sample to the covid testing site which in many cases leads to contamination. We eliminate the delay and guarantee your test results come from the most accurate RT-PCR equipment for reliable same day covid testing.
