What is Rapid PCR Testing?
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests deliver highly accurate results for people with or without symptoms. In fact, it’s known as the “gold standard” of COVID-19 testing. While it used to take several days to deliver results, Affinity Urgent Care is now pleased to offer rapid PCR testing with same-day results.
Rapid PCR tests involve a brief nasal swab and work by screening for the genetic material of SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes the respiratory disease called COVID-19. Rapid antigen testing, on the other hand, screens for a protein related to SARS-CoV-2 and is considered to be slightly less accurate, although still reliable.
