What It Is

The IC Labs Rapid COVID-19 Molecular NAAT Test is a 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 loop-mediated isothermal amplification (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 Abbott ID Now Test or the Cepheid Xpert Xpress Assay. The Abbot ID Now test uses nucleic acid isothermal amplification technology. The Cepheid Xpert Xpress Assay uses multiplex reverse transcription technology. Both tests have 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 Molecular NAAT test is not a RT-PCR test. If a negative RT-PCR test is required, please consider our COVID-19 RT-PCR Test.

It 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.
