Centers to Test for COVID-19

Details of Centers to test for COVID-19 Infection

A swab test: A sample from your throat or nose will be collected with the help of a cotton swab.

A nasal aspirate: In this method, the lab technician will inject a saline solution into your nose, and then remove the sample with a gentle suction.

A tracheal aspirate: A thin, lighted tube called a bronchoscope is inserted into your lungs, from where a sample is collected for testing.

A sputum test: Sputum can be collected either from the nose with a swab or by asking the patient to cough up the mucus.

A blood test: Blood sample is drawn and tested in a lab for the virus. This is either done through a blanket test for all variants of the coronavirus (including regular flu) or through a specialised gene-sequencing test that locates the marker for the novel coronavirus.
