Can I Get Tested For Covid At Home?
As we approach the yearlong mark of the COVID-19 global pandemic crisis, we continue to see a growing number of cases in the United States and Texas. Accessible COVID-19 lab testing in Houston is vital for the health of many individuals. Unfortunately, many individuals are unable to leave their homes safely, whether because they are too ill, are receiving medical treatment, or cannot leave due to personal obligations. This is why at Medical Mobile Services, we provide at home COVID-19 testing in Houston and throughout Texas. Getting tested for this highly contagious virus can help to stop the spread by limiting exposure from infected individuals to those that are healthy around them. If you have reason to believe you have been exposed to COVID-19, our team can help you. Contact us today to learn more about the types of COVID-19 testing we offer and to schedule an appointment for your quick and simple virus screening.
What kind of COVID-19 test is most accurate?
PCR tests are currently the most accurate test that can be administered in order to determine if an individual is currently infected with COVID-19. These PCR tests are used to detect COVID-19 RNA, which is the genetic code for the virus. This RNA sequence will only be present in an individual if they are infected with the virus at the time of the test. PCR tests are considered the most effective because they are used to directly detect the presence of an antigen, instead of searching for the presence of antibodies. Many people do not have the ability to wait the 24-72 hours in order to get the results from a PCR test and may instead choose to get a rapid COVID-19 test. At Medical Mobile Services in Houston, not only do we offer COVID-19 PCR testing and COVID-19 rapid testing, we also offer COVID-19 antibody testing. Our tests are completely mobile, meaning we come to you.
Listed below are some of the main benefits to a COVID-19 PCR test:
-PCR Testing is effective at determining if a patient has COVID-19 before they develop symptoms or antibodies to the virus
-PCR Testing is covered by more insurance plans than rapid testing
-PCR Testing is believed to be the most accurate measure of a patient’s exposure and infection
