What type of COVID-19 test do you offer?
Currently, we offer two types of COVID-19 tests.
Our in-house test is a “rapid molecular / nucleic” by Abbott ID Now. This test is collected by a nasal swab.
Our send-out test is a “PCR molecular” performed by an outside reference laboratory. This test is collected by a nasopharyngeal swab.
Please note: Our rapid in-house test is not PCR however it’s equivalent in that it looks at the RNA of the virus like PCR. If you are travelling and have questions regarding if the rapid test is acceptable, please contact the airline.
