Antigen and molecular, or PCR, tests are the main 2 types of COVID-19 tests that can presently be utilized to diagnose a patient as being contaminated with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The test kits are regulated by a healthcare provider utilizing a nasal swab to gather nasal liquid or an oral swab to gather a sample of saliva. Comprehensive Labs processes both oral and nasal swabbing kits to furnish physicians with quick, reliable COVID-19 diagnostic test results. While the diagnostic tests we perform are essentially handled via mail, we will send a phlebotomist in some cases, as a trained professional is needed to perform a nasal test.Get Fast, Reliable Coronavirus Lab Test Results with Comprehensive Labs
