WE USE THE GOLD STANDARD FOR COVID-19 DETECTION

Learn more about how we test you for the detection of the SARS-COV-2 Virus (COVID-19)

COVID-19 PCR Testing Machine

WHY WE TEST YOU USING RT-PCR

According to the CDC, the “gold standard” for clinical diagnostic detection of SARS-CoV-2 is RT-PCR. This test actually detects RNA (genetic material) that is specific to the virus and can detect the virus within days of infection, even those who have no symptoms. 


The sample must be processed in a lab. Unlike other RT-PCR labs, that can take up to 5 days to get results, with Chirp COVID Testing, we have streamlined our operations and equipment to get you results in 24 hours from the lab receiving your sample. 

nasal swab collection for covid-19 testing

HOW IS A RT-PCR SAMPLE COLLECTED? 

When you arrive at one of our drive-thru or walk-up collection sites, a certified medical professional will take a quick swab of your lower nasal cavity. Saliva testing and At-Home Collection Kits are coming soon.


Rapid antigen test for COVID-19

WHY WE DON'T USE THE "RAPID" ANTIGEN TEST

Although the Antigen Test can get results in 15 minutes, it is not as accurate. According to the CDC, The antigen level in specimens collected either before symptoms, or late in the course of infection, may be below the limit of detection of virus of the test. This may result in a negative antigen test result, even though an infection may be present.


Since we have streamlined lab operations, we feel that PCR testing-with a 24 hour turnaround time-is the best balance of accuracy and speed
