Avoid long lines and turnaround times

With increased testing occurring due to students returning to school, excessively long lines are being reported across the country. Meanwhile, the turnaround time for test results is also starting to get longer with the Alberta government warning people they should expect to wait at least 7-10 days before receiving their results. 

By booking a PCR swab test with Ichor, you can avoid both of these problems and get the certainty you need to either resume your life or start self-isolating. Having to wait 7-10 days before knowing if you have COVID-19 can prolong the pain and disruption this novel coronavirus is causing in your life. But with PCR swab testing for active infections from Ichor, it doesn’t have to. 

Need COVID-19 antibody testing? Ichor offers that too. Find out if you’ve potentially come in contact with the virus and now have the antibodies for it. All from the comfort and safety of your own home. 

COVID-19 Antibody Testing

Access asymptomatic testing 

Asymptomatic testing is no longer being offered by the Alberta government. Ontario recently followed suit, offloading asymptomatic testing to pharmacies which will require you to make an appointment before being able to do so. This change to how COVID-19 testing is being carried out reflects the expected oncoming onslaught of influenza season being paired with the current pandemic. With COVID-19 and influenza having similar symptoms, it’s predicted the number of people getting tested will soon skyrocket.

If you’re curious or concerned that you may have COVID-19 but do not have any symptoms, Ichor has you covered. Our affordable PCR swab test for active infections will help put your fears to bed and provide you with the answers you’re looking for. And with a targeted turnaround time of only 72 hours, it’ll do so very quickly.

Industry-leading accuracy

In Alberta we use the PCR (polymerase chain reaction) Hologic Aptima SARS-CoV-2 assay to test for active infections of COVID-19. The test features a positive per cent agreement (PPA) of 100% and a negative per cent agreement (NPA) of 98.2%. This means you can rest assured that if you receive a positive test result that it is entirely accurate, whereas receiving a negative test result will nearly ensure that you are not currently infected with COVID-19.

Less invasive saliva testing now available

Ichor is now able to provide saliva PCR testing for active COVID-19 infections. This form of testing is a lot less intrusive than standard PCR testing, which requires a nasal or throat swab to either be inserted deep into your nasal passage or deep into the back of your throat. 

In addition to being more comfortable for those taking the test, our saliva PCR test for active COVID-19 infections is also much safer for our technicians who are administering it as they no longer have to be in close proximity to the test subject.

We are also able to offer remove collection supervision and shipping assistance with our saliva test which means we can provide PCR testing with 72 hour result turnaround anywhere in the country that FedEx operates.
