What It Is

The IC Labs COVID-19 RT-PCR is a real time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction test that uses a sample taken from a nasal swab to detect the ribonucleic acid (RNA) from SARS-CoV-2, commonly known as the coronavirus. It is also known as a molecular test, nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT), RT-PCR test and a LAMP test.

If this diagnostic test is positive, it means that it has detected the virus’ genetic material and the person is CURRENTLY infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Once the infection is gone, the RNA disappears, and the test will be negative.

A positive test is considered very accurate, but it’s possible to be infected with the virus and have a negative RNA result. Testing less than five to six days after exposure to the corona virus is likely to produce a negative RNA result. No Covid-19 test is 100% accurate, so it’s important to follow Covid-19 guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, such as social distancing.

This test is suitable for humans of any age, including infants.

We utilize the Thermo Fisher 7500 Real-Time PCR Covid-19 Assay. This test uses multiplex diagnostic solution technology and has been authorized by the FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for use by authorized laboratories.

IC Labs is not contracted with your insurance company. However, you may be eligible to receive reimbursement for all or part of the cost of this test. Contact your health insurance company for eligibility details.

What It Is Not

The IC Labs COVID-19 RT-PCR test is not an antibody test. It does not reveal if you have already been exposed to an infection by detecting the presence of antibodies in a person’s blood or serum. Antibody testing is not typically used to diagnose a current infection as it takes the body some time to produce antibodies.

It is also not a rapid antigen test. Results may take 48 hours. For results in about 3 hours, we also offer a Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Test, a Rapid COVID-19 Molecular NAAT Test, and a Rapid COVID-19 RT-PCR Test.

This test is not currently accepted by the state of Hawaii as we are not yet on their list of Trusted Testing and Travel Partners.
