We also utilized local labs for nonurgent RT-PCR testing with the typical turnaround time of 8 – 48 hours
Rapid Antigen test – Rapid COVID-19 with Sophia 2 Analyzer detects specific proteins in the collected sample, which may indicate a COVID-19 infection. Antigen testing is a more affordable choice for those who need answers immediately. Results are available at the point of care, normally in less than an hour.
