What is Coronavirus

COVID-19 is a new strain of the virus that belongs to the Coronavirus family. This family causes many diseases such as the common cold and the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) among others.

Transmission of the Coronavirus can happen from animal to man. The spread of the virus occurs when an infected person sneezes or coughs. The virus uses mucous membranes like the eyes, nose, and mouth to enter the body.

What is Rapid Covid-19 testing?

The rapid antibody kit is a quick, safe, and noninvasive method to check if you have Coronavirus antibodies. When exposed to any type of microbe, the human body produces an immune response. White blood cells are activated and begin the fight against the infection. Part of your immune response depends on the production of antibodies that battle infections.

The rapid COVID-19 antibody kit detects antibodies against COVID-19 in your bloodstream. There are two types of antibodies that the human body produces when exposed to COVID-19: IgM and IgG. IgM antibodies typically rise 5 days after infection whereas IgG starts rising 2 weeks after infection. Our rapid antibody kits will provide you with both IgM and IgG results.

Meeting the Highest Regulatory Standards

We put your safety first to provide reliable and accurate COVID-19 testing for you and your family. We follow CDC guidelines with rigor to provide fast, safe, and accurate COVID-19 testing. Have peace of mind that your COVID-19 test results are precise.
