COVID-19 Testing for Businesses
Pulse-MD Urgent Care offers viral tests for the presence of COVID-19 infection, as well as serological tests for antibodies and potential immunity. Anyone can get tested, though supplies are limited.
- A viral test tells you if you have a current infection.
- An antibody test tells you if you had a previous infection
Viral COVID-19 Test
A viral test is an oral or nasal swab or saliva test that looks for evidence of an active viral infection. There are two major types: a PCR test and an antigen test. PCR tests checks for a virus’s genetic material, while antigen tests look for specific proteins on a virus’s surface. The viral test does not indicate if you were infected in the past.
COVID-19 Antibody Test
Antibody blood tests, also called serologic tests, check for the presence of antibodies to coronavirus in the blood. It can be used to detect a past infection. IgM and IgG are immunoglobulins produced by the immune system to protect against COVID-19. The level of IgM antibody begins to rise 1 week after the initial infection, while the rise in IgG usually appears after 14 days. Elevated IgG levels can last for 6 months or even several years. By testing for the presence of these antibodies, we are able to determine if a patient was previously infected by the coronavirus. It’s important to realize that the test does not diagnose an active infection or identify who is protected from reinfection.
