What are the COVID-19 Testing Types Available?
Rapid RT-PCR Test
The quickest test for determining whether the novel coronavirus is present is the Rapid COVID-19 test (COVID-19). Similar to a routine diagnostic test, rapid COVID testing uses a swab. The presence or absence of a viral infection is then determined by laboratory analysis of a swab.
Rapid tests are highly accurate and can return patient results on the same day as the test. Our care team is able to swab and receive results on the same day, in contrast to conventional swab tests. The results of a typical test will probably not be available for several days. Rapid testing enables our care team to provide patients with results the same day the test is finished.
Rapid Antigen Test
All of our clinics at Instant Urgent Care provide Rapid Antigen COVID-19 testing for patients who require an immediate diagnosis for medical clearance or return to work. Patients who need to stay in their communities for work and personal reasons typically benefit from same-day urgent care rapid test, with an assurance to provide results on the same day.
However, if patients are traveling to another state or country by plane, they might need to get a particular RT-PCR test. Contact us for more information.
Rapid NAAT (Molecular Test)
Instant Urgent Care centers are now equipped with Abbott’s ID NOW Rapid Molecular test to provide the fastest and most reliable urgent care rapid test results for patients. Abbott’s Molecular test has testing rates as accurate as 95% for patients and is the most widely researched testing method available.

The accuracy of COVID-19 rapid tests can vary depending on the specific test used. Generally, they may have slightly lower sensitivity than PCR tests, but they can still be quite accurate, especially when taken at the right time.
Rapid tests can detect COVID-19 in the early stages, but their accuracy increases as the viral load in your body increases. They are more reliable a few days after exposure or when symptoms develop.
