Do The COVID Consultants use an RT-PCR test? Is this the same as a NAAT test? Is this test FDA/EUA approved?2020-09-13T22:38:08-06:00

RT stands for reverse transcriptase, PCR stands for polymerase chain reaction, which is a type of test that amplifies genetic material. Our test is an FDA/EUA approved diagnostic test for COVID-19.  If COVID-19 is present, it will detect it in your sample.

NAAT stands for Nucleac Acid Amplification Test. A PCR test is a type of NAAT test. Therefore, the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) PCR test that we offer is accepted in locations that require a NAAT COVID-19 test.
