SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR - What is Measured?
Our RT-PCR COVID-19 test detects the presence or absence of RNA from SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2), which causes Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). We offer both a nasopharyngeal swab and saliva swab
testing. This is not an antibody test.
Results are delivered via our secure online account within 24-48 hours after receipt to the lab.
An official lab report will be made available to you to serve as proof of your test.
Will insurance pay for the RT-PCR test?
Phi Life Sciences offers COVID-19 testing as a cash-pay service. If you would like us to file your insurance,
