COVID-19 infection testing and serological test

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. This virus can cause mild to severe respiratory illness and people infected with COVID-19 may have few or no symptoms.

Symptoms of COVID-19 may be similar to those of a cold or flu and may include:

  • coughing
  • fever
  • breathing difficulties
  • anosmia: sudden loss of sense of smell without nasal congestion, with or without loss of taste.

Find the right COVID-19 test for you

Biron offers two tests for COVID-19.

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).

Serological test for COVID-19

This blood test checks for the presence of antibodies resulting from past or recent exposure to COVID-19. To date, the scientific community still knows very little about immunity to COVID-19 and there is currently no test to ensure that the presence of antibodies confers protective immunity. This is not a screening test for active infection with COVID-19.
