The COVID-19 PCR test is a saliva test that checks for evidence of SARS-CoV-2. Accesa Health will soon be offering COVID-19 PCR testing at our office with results in 3 days or less after collection. Testing will be offered on a walk-in basis or by appointment.
Accesa Health selected the SalivaDirect COVID-19 PCR test for our patients. Rather than having to stick an uncomfortable swab in you nose, this COVID-19 PCR test utilizes a simple saliva sample. This COVID-19 PCR test was developed by Yale University and has received Emergency Use Authorization by the FDA and is reported to have a clinical specificity of 100% and clinical sensitivity of 94%.
