The COVID-19 test IntegraLabs, Inc. performs is a sophisticated genetic analysis using instruments operated by skilled technicians under the supervision of an experienced PhD in a CLIA certified Clinical Laboratory to detect the presence or absence of viral RNA. The test is conducted using the accepted gold standard for virus detection, RT-PCR.
A positive on the test indicates the presence of viral RNA or genetic material of SARS-CoV-19 virus that causes coronavirus Disease (COVID-19.)
A negative test result means there is no detectable virus present.
The sample can be collected with either a nasopharyngeal (nasal) swab or an oropharyngeal (oral/throat) swab.
