What is a PCR COVID-19 Test?
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing is a diagnostic method that screens for the genetic material of SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19. It is sometimes referred to as a molecular test. PCR testing is recognized as the “gold standard” of COVID-19 testing, delivering highly accurate results to patients with or without noticeable symptoms. Comparatively, rapid antigen testing screens for specific proteins related to the coronavirus and are considered slightly less accurate. While many rapid tests can be processed in as little as 15 minutes, results for PCR tests may take a few days.
