What is a PCR test?
The PCR test can detect minute amounts of genetic material in a sample. In this case, the PCR test detects if you are carrying SARS-CoV-2 virus genetic material. Ultimately, it is a diagnostic test to find out if you are carrying the virus.
What is a rapid antigen test?
The rapid travel antigen test detects proteins found on the surface of the virus. The sensitivity of antigen tests is rather lower than for PCR tests.
What is a rapid antibody test?
The rapid quantitative antibody test or ELISA test is an immunoassay with 98% specificity that allows you to know if you have developed antibodies against the disease (if you have had the disease).
How is the PCR test sample taken?
The PCR test for travel is performed through a nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swab (through the nose and mouth).
How is the rapid antigen test sample taken?
Like the PCR test, the rapid travel antigen test is performed through a nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swab (through the nose and mouth).
How is the rapid antibody test sample taken?
The rapid antibody test is performed through a puncture in the fingertip.
Is there any kind of indication prior to taking my COVID test to travel?
One hour before the COVID travel test, avoid eating, drinking, smoking, or brushing your teeth.
