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%. COVID-19 PCR testing is considered more accurate than the COVID-19 antigen tests which provide results in 1-2 hours.
COVID-19 PCR testing requires a simple saliva sample. Because the FDA stipulates that COVID-19 PCR testing needs to be observed by one of our medical providers, we can observe you spit into the tube in the comfort of your car or through a virtual visit from home. Once collected, the kit will be sent via prepaid UPS shipping to the lab for processing. Lab results will be usually available to you electronically in 36 hours or less after the lab receives your sample. Assuming the tube is properly sealed, saliva samples for this COVID-19 PCR test are stable for 30 days.
