SARS-CoV-2 screening

COVID-19 molecular PCR testing

Molecular test that identifies individuals potentially infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus at the time of testing. This polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) looks for viral RNA in a sample of secretions from the nose and throat (oropharyngeal and nasopharyngeal swab).

Take this test at Biron if you :

  • are over 4 years old,
  • wish to have regular monitoring of your condition to protect people in your environment who are considered more vulnerable (e.g., you live with an immunosuppressed person).

So you can:

  • quarantine to protect everyone around you in case of infection.

Specimen Type: Oropharyngeal and nasopharyngeal swab

A positive result: indicates that SARS-CoV-2 RNA has been detected and that you are considered infected with COVID-19 and presumably contagious.

A negative result: means that SARS-CoV-2 RNA was not present in your sample. You are not infected with COVID-19.
