COVID 19/Influenza A/B Antigen

Welcome to our cutting-edge facility in the Bronx, providing comprehensive Antigen testing for both COVID-19 and Influenza A/B. Our commitment is to offer accurate and efficient testing options, ensuring prompt and reliable results for various respiratory viruses.

What is COVID 19/Influenza A/B Antigen?

The term "COVID-19/Influenza A/B Antigen" typically refers to a combination test that is designed to detect antigens associated with both COVID-19 (caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus) and influenza A and B viruses. These tests are commonly known as multiplex or combination antigen tests.

Here's a breakdown:

  1. COVID-19 Antigen Test:

    • This component of the test is designed to detect the presence of specific proteins (antigens) associated with the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19.

    • Antigen tests are generally quicker than PCR tests and provide results in a shorter time frame, usually within 15-30 minutes.

    • These tests are often used for rapid screening, especially in settings where quick results are crucial.

  1. Influenza A/B Antigen Test:

  • This part of the test is designed to detect antigens associated with influenza A and B viruses, which are common causes of seasonal flu.

    • Similar to the COVID-19 antigen test, the influenza A/B antigen test provides relatively quick results and is useful for early detection of influenza.

Our COVID-19/Influenza A/B Antigen Test is a combined test designed to detect specific proteins related to both viruses, aiding in differential diagnosis during flu seasons and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This test enables us to identify the presence of these viruses efficiently.

Significance of Antigen Testing

Antigen testing plays a crucial role in identifying and distinguishing between COVID-19 and Influenza A/B infections. This becomes especially vital during flu seasons when both viruses might show similar symptoms.
