A rapid PCR test can be done in a medical office or pharmacy using desktop machines that process the test without the need to send your test to a high complexity laboratory. The test will check for the presence of viral RNA in your saliva or nasal swab sample.How long does it take to get results for a rapid PCR test?
You will usually get your results on the same day that you sample was collected. In some cases, you may get your results while you wait.Is this test accurate?
Rapid PCR tests must meet specific requirements before they receive an FDA Emergency Use Authorization. Nonetheless, a rapid PCR test is not as accurate as a PCR test that is run in a high complexity laboratory on special machines. The rapid PCR tests are quite good at detecting infection with the SARS CoV-2 virus when you are symptomatic, but are not as good at detecting infection when you are asymptomatic. Given that 40 to 60% of positive COVID tests are found in asymptomatic individuals, this test is not recommended if you are asymptomatic.Is there a reason to get a rapid PCR test over an antigen test or a RT-PCR test? Is one better than the other?
In general, an RT-PCR test that is run in a high complexity laboratory will be the most accurate. The next most accurate test is a rapid PCR test followed by a rapid antigen test. The benefit of a rapid PCR test is that you can get results often within 30 minutes rather than needing to wait to ship the test to a lab.Which Rapid PCR tests are available through the AZOVA COVID testing network?
Rapid PCR tests include tests like the Abbot ID Now®, Cobas® SARS-CoV-2 & Influenza A/B Assay, the Cepheid XpertXpress® or the Accula SARS CoV-2 test®.
