Rapid COVID-19 RT-PCR Testing with Same Day Results – $249

IC Labs, LLC, is pleased to be able to offer a Rapid COVID-19 RT-PCR test that can provide same day results to Las Vegas and Henderson area residents and visitors.

This test utilizes technology currently considered the gold standard for COVID-19 testing with the convenience of same day results. Although no coronavirus test is 100% accurate, this test provides the highest level of accuracy. A negative result meets the requirements of almost every physician, medical facility, employer, airline, and destination except the State of Hawaii.

Reasons to use this RT-PCR test instead of other tests that provides same day results, like our Rapid Antigen test or our Rapid Molecular NAAT test, include:

  • Domestic or international travel that specifically requires a negative PCR test (Not accepted for travel to the State of Hawaii)
  • Someone in your household or workplace has been diagnosed with COVID-19, but you are not feeling sick, and you desire a test with the highest sensitivity
  • Wondering if you have been exposed to the coronavirus, but you are not feeling sick, and you desire a test with the highest sensitivity

What It Is

The IC Labs Rapid COVID-19 RT-PCR Test – Same Day 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), and RT-PCR test.

If this rapid diagnostic test is positive for COVID-19, it means that it has detected the virus’ genetic material and the person is CURRENTLY infected the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Once any of the infection is gone, the RNA disappears, and that test will be negative.

A positive test is considered very accurate, but it’s possible to be infected 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 Cepheid Xpert Xpress COVID-19 Assay. This test uses multiplex reverse transcription technology and has been authorized by the FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for use by authorized laboratories.

What It Is Not

The IC Labs Rapid COVID-19 RT-PCR Test – Same Day 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.

This test is not accepted for travel to the State of Hawaii as we are not yet on their list of Trusted Testing and Travel Partners.
