COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) Diagnostics Molecular (rRT-PCR) and Serology (Antibody) Tests

Sinochips Diagnostics is helping communities and health systems safely navigate through this pandemic by leveraging our state-of-the-art CLIA lab to provide a rapid, accurate, and highly scalable solution to detect active COVID-19 infections

Diagnostic (rRT-PCR) Test

COVID-19 Testing

Real-Time Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction

COVID-19 Nucleic Acid RT-PCR Test Kit is a real-time RT-PCR test intended for the qualitative detection of RNA from the SARS-CoV-2 in upper respiratory specimens (such as nasal, mid-turbinate, nasopharyngeal, oropharyngeal swab specimens and nasopharyngeal wash/aspirate or nasal aspirate specimens) from individuals suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider.. Our multiplex SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic test kit has received FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).

Sinochips Diagnostics COVID-19 Test is a real-time RT-PCR test intended for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from the SARS-CoV-2 in upper respiratory nasopharyngeal (NP), anterior nares (AN) and oropharyngeal (OP) swab specimens from individuals suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider.

Serology (Antibody) Test

COVID-19 Testing

Roche Elecsys® Anti‑SARS‑CoV‑2 Test

We provide antibody test in order to identify individuals with an adaptive immune response to SARS‑CoV‑2, indicating recent or prior infection. Roche Elecsys® Anti‑SARS‑CoV‑2 is an immunoassay intended for qualitative detection of antibodies to SARS‑CoV‑2 in human serum and plasma (K2‑EDTA, K3‑EDTA, Li‑heparin).  This test has received FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).

Service Highlights

  • FDA-EUA approved
  • Results available 3 days after sample receipt at Sinochips Diagnostics Laboratory
  • Results directly to ordering HCP using automated LIMS

Screening Test

COVID-19 Testing

Screening testing for SARS-CoV-2 is intended to identify infected persons who are asymptomatic and without known or suspected exposure to SARS-CoV-2. Screening testing is performed to identify persons who may be contagious so that measures can be taken to prevent further transmission.

4. Receive results

The HCP will receive the results through our result portal within 1 business day for the Diagnostic (rRT-PCR) Test and Screening Test, and 3 business days for the Serology (Antibody) Test.

FAQ

COVID-19 Testing

COVID-19 infection is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is responsible for the current global pandemic. SARS-CoV-2 spreads from person to person by respiratory droplets and is mostly easily transmitted when people are in close contact with one another.

A specimen for a COVID-19 molecular test is usually collected by inserting a swab through the nose to the back of the throat. That specimen is then sent to a laboratory.

For our Diagnostic Test (RT-PCR) test, the result is available next day after sample receipt at Sinochips Diagnostics. For our Antibody (Serology) test, the turn-around-time is typically 3 days.

A negative result means that the person tested most likely did not have an active COVID-19 infection at the time the sample was collected.

False-negative results are possible, so retesting might be recommended if a clinician still suspects COVID-19.

A positive result means that the patient has an active COVID-19 infection and, in accordance with CDC guidance, should self-isolate and stay away from others.

In the event of breathing trouble or other emergency warning signs, seek emergency medical care.

Yes. Although molecular diagnostic tests are highly specific, occasionally tests can yield a false-positive or false-negative result.

The price of our COVID-19 Diagnostic (rRT-PCR) Test is $150, and $65 for Serology (Antibody) Test to our hospital and laboratory clients. Sinochips Diagnostics does not charge patients directly for laboratory services.
