The Antigen test, an immunoassays test, looks for the presence of COVID causing virus in the body. It involves testing the sample that is swabbed from the nose and searches for the proteins on the outside of the infection-causing antigen. There are no special instructions or precautionary steps taken before and after the test.
Swift Clinics provide fast and reliable antigen testing in Toronto. The results are generated on the same day of the test and in urgent cases within one to two hours. An additional fee is charged for urgent tests. We provide a valid travel certificate for all COVID RT-PCR and Antigen tests.
The RT-PCR, a molecular test, works on the respiratory part of the human body. This test aims to search for RNA of the coronavirus. A nasal swab collects the sample directly from the nostril or nasopharyngeal that goes into the nasal cavity. After extracting the sample, the next step is to separate the RNA from all other materials. The RNA is then transcribed into DNA. The PCR technology increases the quantity of DNA. The purpose of generating billions of copies is to ease the search for viruses. If the virus is present, it attaches itself to the DNA strand, releasing fluorescent dye. All this is tracked and computerized. The specific level of fluorescence indicates the presence of the virus. The PCR test in Toronto provided by Swift Clinics ensures the most reliable and fastest results. You will receive the result on the same day or in urgent cases within two hours.
