Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Test
We now offer the BD Veritor System for Rapid Detection of SARS-CoV-2 to test our patient for the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The BD Veritor is a type of antigen test. Antigen tests are designed to detect proteins from the virus that causes COVID-19.
Antigen tests are very specific for the virus, but are not as sensitive as molecular tests. This means that a positive result is highly accurate with the antigen test, but a negative result does not rule out infection and a molecular test may be needed to confirm patient is negative for COVID. This antigen test will allow us to provide you with rapid positive or negative results same day!
