Which COVID-19 Test should I take?

COVID-19 PCR (NAAT) LAB TEST

PCR testing is considered the “gold standard” in SARS-CoV-2 detection. This test can detect the virus within days of infection, even those who have no symptoms. A nasal swab test sample is obtained in our clinic, or even in your car. Turnaround time for the lab is generally in 48 to 72 hours (subject to change).

These tests are often required by:

employers before going back to work

for travel to some states and internationally

Test results will be posted to your online portal as soon as they are available.

If you have symptoms or have been recently exposed (3-5 days prior) you must make a TeleMED appoint first. Call 503-249-9000

COVID-19 ANTIGEN (RAPID) TEST

Rapid tests are less accurate than the PCR test and are best used for those who are having symptoms of COVID-19. The advantage of this test is a rapid turnaround time of only 15 minutes.

The test is often done in your car after a telemedicine evaluation  with a clinic provider.

But it is not known how much protection the antibodies provide or how long this protection may last. Please make your Antibody test appointment online.

NAAT COVID TESTS

NAAT COVID Test Near Me in Portland

Is the SARS-CoV-2 PCR test offered by Portland Urgent Care a nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT)?

Yes, PCR is the most commonly used NAAT technique for detecting specific nucleic acid in a sample. NAAT techniques such as PCR and TMA are both sensitive and specific for detecting the presence of SARS-CoV-2 in a sample. This contrasts with antigen testing which detects a specific viral protein in a sample. Antigen tests are more rapid but than PCR tests but may not detect all infections (less sensitive) and are more susceptible to false positive results (less specific).
