About Our COVID Test:

  • We use Abbott's ID NOW™molecular test to provide rapid COVID results in minutes. If seeking specific testing results for travel and/or other entry requirements please verify the test you are looking for. Our test is a molecular NAAT (nucleic acid amplification) test. Please verify the specific test you need with your institution.  
  • Typically, there are two types of tests for COVID-19: viral testing and antibody testing. Viral tests determine if you currently have an infection while antibody tests determine if you have had the virus previously. There are 2 common types of viral tests: molecular and antigen.  Molecular tests are the most sensitive, as they look for the viral DNA, whereas antigen tests look for surface markers.  Our ID NOW test is an NAAT (nucleic acid amplification) test.

  • The ID NOW test was designed to be used in “point of care” environments and ideal for places like The Urgency Room, where samples are not transported offsite, are run immediately, and patients are not staying for long periods of time. The goal is to provide highly accurate, rapid testing to identity infection quickly and in-turn, reduce the spread.
