- If data is incorrectly entered it will results in delays in processing the sample and issuing results.
- The lab is CLIA certified, therefore in some cases of data entry errors the sample is not permitted to be tested.
- Examples; misspelled names, registration name and sample name do not match, DOB errors, and address not complete.
- PAINLESS and SELF ADMINISTERED.
- This test is the SARS-CoV2 PCR lab-analyzed test and extremely accurate (98%). Not to be confused with rapid covid-19 testing, which may require confirmation of a positive result by PCR testing. PCR testing does take longer to receive results but is able to detect the virus from as early as 2 day from exposure to after 14 days of infection, whether or not the person is showing symptoms.
- The Covid-19 Rapid Antigen tests are much less accurate with a roughly 2 day window of detection capability, usually after symptoms are expressed.
- Travel testing prior to departure: This test meets all requirements for air travel. Contact the onsite site supervisor to conduct your test. The site supervisor will review and explain the typical lab result turn around time to meet your required timeline for travel. No guarantees can be made because of the numerous variables involved in the collection and testing process.
- In/Out patient facilities / long term care / nursing home visiting: This test meets all requirements for patient and/or visitation access into care facilities.

There are two different types of tests – diagnostic tests and antibody tests.
A diagnostic test can show if you have an active coronavirus infection and should take steps to quarantine or isolate yourself from others. Currently there are two types of diagnostic tests– molecular tests, such as RT-PCR tests, that detect the virus’s genetic material, and antigen tests that detect specific proteins from the virus.
An antibody test looks for antibodies that are made by your immune system in response to a threat, such as a specific virus. Antibodies can help fight infections. Antibodies can take several days or weeks to develop after you have an infection and may stay in your blood for several weeks or more after recovery. Because of this, antibody tests should not be used to diagnose COVID-19. Currently researchers do not know if the presence of antibodies means that you are immune to Covid-19 in the future.
Different Types of Coronavirus Tests
|Molecular Test||Antigen Test||Antibody Test|
|Also known as…||This is the test you completed with GoLab. Diagnostic test, viral test, molecular test, nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT), RT-PCR test, LAMP test||Diagnostic test||Serological test, serology, blood test, serology test|
|How the sample is taken…||Nasopharyngeal (the part of the throat behind the nose), nasal or throat swab (most tests) Saliva (a few tests)||Nasal or nasalpharyngeal swab (most tests)||Finger stick or blood draw|
|How long it takes to get results…||A few days or up to a week (longer in some locations with many tests) Ameri Immunization goal time is 12 to 24 hours.||Some may be very fast (15 – 30 minutes), depending on the test||Same day (many locations) or 1-3 days|
|Is another test needed…||This test is typically highly accurate and usually does not need to be repeated.||Positive results are usually highly accurate, but false positives can happen, especially in areas where very few people have the virus. Negative results may need to be confirmed with a molecular test.||Sometimes a second antibody test is needed for accurate results.|
|What it shows…||Diagnoses active coronavirus infection||Diagnoses active coronavirus infection||Shows if you’ve been infected by coronavirus in the past|
|What it can’t do…||Show if you ever had COVID-19 or were infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 in the past||Antigen tests are more likely to miss an active COVID-19 infection compared to molecular tests. Your health care provider may order a molecular test if your antigen test shows a negative result but you have symptoms of COVID-19.||Diagnose COVID-19 at the time of the test or show that you do not have COVID-19|
- The lab will process the sample as quickly as possible.
- Based on the number of positive tests identified in a batch will extend the result release for the entire batch tested.
- If a test is “inconclusive” it will be run twice by the lab which will delay results being issued.
- May take up to 36 hours in some rare cases.
- Sunday Tests: Tests conducted on Sunday will be processed at 9am Monday. Results will start to post by mid afternoon and evening.
- The three most common issues are:
- Results went into a spam folder
- Email was not legible and/or entered incorrectly
