What are Covid Tests?

To diagnose nCoV-2019, a variety of tests will be conducted in the form of blood draws on respiratory specimens and serum. They will try and look for traces of the coronavirus. If the virus is found, then further tests will be carried to find out the strain of the virus.

Antigen Testing

Antigen testing is our turnkey solution for rapid, point-of-care (POC) COVID-19 testing for employers, events, and organizations nationwide.

How Antigen Testing Works

Collect
Medical professional collects sample via the area of the nasal passage where viral particles are likely to be present.
Test
Mix sample with reagent, dispense sample into test device, where it sits for 15 minutes
Result
Insert device into analyzer with results ready 10 seconds later

In almost all cases, HDR8 recommends complimenting antigen testing with PCR testing as well as enhanced risk mitigation processes to limit the spread of SARS-CoV-2, such as social distancing, mask wearing, and separating into cohorts when possible.
