ANTIGEN TEST $100 -- (best for symptomatic within 5-7 days of onset of symptoms)
****The Veritor ANTIGEN diagnostic test is used to diagnose active coronavirus infection by detecting specific proteins on the surface of the virus via nasal swab. This antigen test has a moderate sensitivity level (84% in trials) with higher true positive rates when the patient is tested within the first 5 days of symptoms. If a patient results negative but continues to have symptoms, a repeat molecular test is then recommended and sometimes required by employer/school, etc.
PCR/MOLECULAR TEST $150 -- (better choice for no symptoms and no known exposure)
(unreliable for active infection if + within the past 3 months)
*****The Accula PCR/MOLECULAR diagnostic test detects genetic material of the virus using a lab technique called polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Results may be available in minutes if analyzed onsite via a nasal swab sample. PCR tests are very accurate (est 95%) when properly performed by a healthcare professional.
3) ****Once a time is arranged, please park in the ALLEY north of the pharmacy building. Call the pharmacy at 584-3784 option 0 upon arrival. STAY IN YOUR VEHICLE and staff will be out shortly to perform the test. DO NOT come into the pharmacy if you have symptoms.
