COVID-19 PCR Testing Omaha

TotalWellness offers a rapid PCR test. With less than an hour of 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 to countries that require a test prior to travel.

TotalWellness is utilizing the following test options:

The Xpert Xpress SARS-CoV-2/Flu/RSV test is a molecular in vitro diagnostic test that aids in the detection and diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2, Flu A, Flu B, and RSV and is based on widely used nucleic acid amplification technology. The Xpert Xpress SARS-CoV-2 /Flu/RSV test is a rapid, real-time reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test intended for the qualitative detection of  four types of viruses: two types that cause influenza (type A and type B), RSV and the virus that causes COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) in upper respiratory specimens collected from individuals. 

The Accula™ SARS-CoV-2 test performed on the Accula Dock is a molecular in vitro diagnostic test utilizing polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and lateral flow technologies for the qualitative, visual detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 in clinician-collected nasal or nasal mid-turbinate swab specimens, collected from individuals suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider.

Abbott ID NOW™ COVID-19 Rapid Molecular test, which is is a Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) with results in under 15 minutes. The Abbott ID NOW COVID-19 is a molecular test used to detect the part of the SARS-CoV-2 virus called viral RNA (nucleic acid), which is the virus’s genetic material. Molecular tests are different from antigen tests. SARS-CoV-2 antigen tests detect a part of the virus called viral proteins, which make up the virus’s structure. The ID NOW a sensitivity score of 95% and specificity of 97.9%.

Each test takes approximately five minutes. The sample is collected with a nasal 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 stalls. Please wear a mask while waiting for your appointment. 

We ask all patients to 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 provided on the consent form to send results, so please double-check your email, phone number, zip code and date of birth are correct on your consent form. Test results will come via text message and email. A QR code and stamp will also be included for international travel.

Appointments are available Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Testing will be held at 9324 H Court, Omaha, NE 68127 in the outside parking lot. We are accepting patients five years and older. Patients will remain in vehicle for the test.

Out of pocket cost: $219

Appointment is required. To make an appointment, select one of these options below based on how you will be paying for test:

Out of Pocket

• This test has not been FDA cleared or approved; 
• This test has been authorized by FDA under an EUA for use by authorized laboratories; 
• This test has been authorized only for the detection of proteins from the viruses specifically listed above, not for any other viruses or pathogens; and, 
• This test is only authorized for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of emergency use of in vitro diagnostics for detection and/or diagnosis of the virus that causes COVID-19 under Section 564(b)(1) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(b)(1), unless the authorization is terminated or revoked sooner.

Key Definitions:

Molecular Test: a diagnostic test that detects genetic material from the virus

Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR): one type of molecular diagnostic test

Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT): one type of molecular diagnostic test

Antigen Test: immunoassays that detect the presence of a specific viral antigen, which implies current viral infection.
