COVID-19 RT-PCR Test in 45 Minutes
TotalWellness is excited to now offer a rapid RT-PCR test. With its 45-minute processing time, our PCR test has an advantage over other PCR coronavirus tests, many of which take days to provide results. During that time, infected patients can pass the virus to others. This RT-PCR test is also ideal for those traveling since many countries require a negative test before arriving.
TotalWellness is utilizing the Xpert® Xpress SARS-CoV-2 test, which is designed for the qualitative detection of the novel coronavirus and runs on the Genexpert systems, with a turnaround time of about 45 minutes. The test performs real-time PCR to extract RNA from the sample and detect SARS-CoV-2. This test has 97.9% sensitivity and 100% specificity. The FDA has granted an emergency use authorization (EUA) for this test. Click here for more information about this RT-PCR test.
Each test takes approximately five minutes. The sample is collected with a nasopharyngeal swab. Results are sent via text and email. When you arrive, please look for the green signs and park in one of our designated COVID-19 Testing parking spots, which are numbered 1-15. Please wear a mask while waiting for your appointment.
We ask all patients complete the consent form online, print and bring paper with you to the appointment. If you don’t have access to printer we will have copies of the consent form available at the time of appointment. We use the contact info you provide on consent form to send results, so please make sure you double-check your email, phone number, zip code and date of birth is correct on consent form.
Appointments are available Monday – Friday. We are closed from 11:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. for a lunch break. Testing will be held at 9324 H Court, Omaha, NE 68127 in the outside parking lot. We are accepting patients nine years and older. Patients will remain in vehicle for test.
At this time we do not accept insurance for RT-PCR testing. If you are looking for insurance billing option, check out our antigen testing option. Appointment is required.
**While our RT-PCR tests are approved for most airlines and most countries for travel, policies and procedures change regularly, and it is the responsibility of the patient to determine whether the country/airline will accept a RT-PCR test or requires a send-off, lab-processed PCR test.
