We are excited to announce that coronavirus testing is improving by the day!
We now have access to a rapid covid-19 antibody test, which will show whether you have been exposed to SARS-Cov-2. The test results in 10 minutes, and the cost is a fraction of that of prior tests.
This test has a sensitivity of 97.2% for the early antibodies and 87.9% for the late antibodies. The specificity is 100%. This means if the test is positive, you can trust it without a doubt, and there is a very low chance, consistent with other labs, that the test will show negative when you have actually had exposure to SARS-Cov-2.
The company has produced a fact sheet for patients with more information: VIEW HERE
We are only able to offer this test to existing patients. If you are not an existing patient and would like to schedule this test, you will need to do an intake with one of our providers first.
With this test, you will walk out of our office knowing whether you have been exposed to SARS-CoV-2. This is a boon for public health, and we are grateful to be able to offer it!
