About Our Test

We employ the gold standard rtPCR molecular diagnostic assay utilizing collection friendly anterior nasal swabs, which collects a sample from the lower part of the nostril and are much less invasive than nasopharyngeal swabs, aka the brain tickle swab.

FAQ

How quickly are results delivered?

RapidBio typically delivers results via text notification in under 24 hours from sample collection.

How will I receive my results?

Notification of test results will be delivered via text. From there you will be directed to login into the RapidBio portal to download your pdf report with the test results. This can then be presented to your airline electronically or in-person prior to boarding.

When should I schedule my test prior to traveling?

Most airlines require a negative COVID test prior to travel where the sample was collected within 72 hours of planned departure. We recommend scheduling your test 48-72 hours prior to departure to ensure delivery of results in a timely manner. We do offer expedited services to receive results within 12 hours of collection when required for an extra fee.

What type of testing is performed by RapidBio?

We perform the gold standard rtPCR test in our CLIA certified laboratory, which is required by most airlines prior to travel.

What type of sample is collected for the test?

RapidBio uses a pain free, non-invasive lower nasal swab to take a sample from the lower part of the nostril. This is much nicer than the brain-tickling nasopharyngeal swab yet just as sensitive.

Is an appointment required to be tested?

No appointment is necessary and drive-up are welcome at the drive-through testing site located at the USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, MI. However, appointments are encouraged and can be made at rapidbio.com/covid19.

Are there any age restrictions on who can be tested?

No, the test involves a swab of the lower part of the nostril and can be performed on adults and most children. However, we do not recommend performing the test on children younger than 2 years of age at this point.

Are you able to provide testing for travel to Hawaii?

At this time, the state of Hawaii requires a COVID test from a select list of providers and RapidBio is not currently on the list. We have requested to be added and suggest contacting us for an update if you are planning to travel to Hawaii.
