Our test is a lab-based molecular COVID test. We use the Abbot ID NOW test, an NAAT (nucleic acid amplification)test. This is a rapid viral test offering same-day results. 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 (administered at The Urgency Room) are the most sensitive, as they look for the viral DNA, whereas antigen tests look for surface markers.
