What is Rapid PCR Testing?
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing is considered the “gold standard” in COVID-19 diagnostics. This method screens for the genetic material of SARS-CoV-2 (the coronavirus that causes COVID-19) and is highly accurate.
While the majority of PCR tests take several days to process, Affinity Urgent Care offers rapid PCR testing technology from BioFire® that provides results in as little as 45 minutes! This means you’ll be able to quickly learn if you have COVID-19 and take the necessary steps to protect yourself and others. All that’s necessary is a simple nasopharyngeal swab, which will be performed by one of our experienced clinicians.
Currently, rapid PCR testing is only available at our La Marque immediate care clinic, although standard PCR and rapid antigen testing is provided at our other locations in Alvin and Galveston. To see the latest COVID-19 testing updates from Affinity Urgent Care, click here.
