As the country’s need for COVID-19 testing evolves, Quest continues to adjust capacity and monitor turnaround times.\r\n
Check to see when you can expect to get your results for COVID-19 active infection, antigen, or antibody testing. The following chart is updated regularly to show typical results turnaround times nationally.
一種COVID-19 antibody test and vaccination: Positive results may also occur after a COVID-19 vaccination, but the clinical significance is not yet known. It is also not known how good this test is at detecting antibodies in those who have been vaccinated.
Keep in mind that tests for priority patients are processed ahead of tests for all other patients. Priority patients include hospitalized patients, individuals in long-term care (such as nursing homes), and presurgical patients.
This test should not be used to diagnose an active COVID-19 infection. If an active infection is suspected, molecular or antigen testing is recommended. Learn more about ourQuestDirect COVID-19 Active Infection Test。
一種positive一種ntibody test result means that antibodies were detected in your blood sample. This can have a couple of possible meanings. It could mean that:
Uncommonly, you may have developed antibodies from an earlier infection with a different virus related to SARS-CoV-2 and the laboratory test cannot distinguish between these other virus antibodies and those antibodies generated in response to SARS-CoV-2.
The antibody tests, molecular tests, and antigen tests (together “All tests”) have not been FDA cleared or approved;
The COVID-19 molecular tests have been authorized only for the detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2, not for any other viruses or pathogens;
The COVID-19 and Flu test has been authorized only for the simultaneous qualitative detection and differentiation of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2, influenza A virus, and influenza B virus, and not for any other viruses or pathogens; and
The antigen tests have been authorized only for the detection of proteins from SARS-CoV-2, and not for any other viruses or pathogens; and
一種ll tests are 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 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.
一種bout the FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) Status
This test has been authorized by the FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). This means that while Quest Diagnostics has validated the test and has the data to believe the test and the collection kit are accurate, 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 IgG Antibodies against SARS-CoV-2, 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 on in vitro diagnostics for detection and/or diagnosis of 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. Additional studies need to be conducted for this test and others like it to be FDA cleared or approved.
Regardless of your test result, you should discuss your results with your doctor and continue to follow any safety precautions recommended by public health experts. This can help you and your community better manage the risks and benefits of resuming daily activities.
It's easy to schedule or reschedule lab tests for the time and place that's most convenient for you.
