Rapid Antigen Testing in Norco, California

The rapid antigen test is a type of COVID-testing that looks for molecules at the virus’s surface. It stands out for its speed. We have our testing site in Norco, California, which houses about 27,000 residents. The city enjoys a year-round climate, opportunities for recreation, and a diverse economy. 

Norco, CA extends far into uninhabited desert areas, and east through the Mojave Desert to the Nevada/Arizona border. It is larger than nine states in the US. And is usually regarded as the Inland Empire. The cities in the western area, including Riverside, San Bernardino, Ontario, and a jumble of other communities, are developed suburbs of the Los Angeles area with a fast-growing and increasingly self-sufficient economy.

We’re heavily invested in the battle against COVID-19, which is why we have included the Rapid Antigen testing in our services—ensuring that everyone who comes to us for testing can get their results faster.

 

What is Rapid Antigen Testing

Unlike the slower and more accurate PCR tests, the antigen tests are used to make qualitative detection of SARS-COV-2. People who take the Rapid Antigen tests are those whose healthcare providers suspected the presence of COVID-19. The test tells you who’s most probable of spreading the virus.

How the Rapid Antigen test work is, the Doctor swabs the back of your throat or nose. Afterward, the sample will be mixed with a solution that tears open the virus and free up the protein, then the mix is added to a paper strip that has antibodies built to latch on to the proteins, and if found, you’ll be diagnosed positive. And these results can be gotten in 15 minutes or less.

There are several cases of the Rapid Antigen Tests producing false positives. And according to the FDA, false positives can be minimized through the following ways.

 

  • Pay attention to incubation time when processing multiple specimens.
  • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for giving tests and carefully read the instructions.
  • Ensure that your workspace is clean to avoid and that you follow all the safety protocols to reduce cross-contamination.
  • Ensure that all false-positive cases be reported to the FDA and the manufacturer.
