What It Is

The IC Labs 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 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 or the Accula SARS-CoV-2 Test. These tests use multiplex reverse transcription technology and have been authorized by the FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for use by authorized laboratories.

What It Is Not

The IC Labs 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.
