Just like an in-person visit, the doctor takes your history and symptoms, performs an exam and may recommend treatment, which may include at home or at office COVID-19 Testing and even antibody testing performed by a Registered Nurse under the supervision of the treating physician.

In-home COVID-19 PCR testing and antibody testing by a team of Medical Professionals

Laboratory partnerships have been made for accurate and fast PCR results. Our team of physicians will provide you with test results in as little as 36hrs. The test is simple and will be completed by a Registered Nurse, under the visual guidance of your treating physician.  Reduce unnecessary exposure and ask your physician if COVID-19 research testing is right for you.

Business Consulting and Employee Screening for COVID-19

THE I.V. DOC is here to support your return to work with strategies to reduce risks of viral outbreak.  Our goal is to provide a safe working environment for your employees.  Screening for active infection and symptoms as well as contact tracing will play critical roles in reducing the chance of an office resurgence of cases. Employers accross the U.S. have entrusted THE I.V. DOC to provide employee screening following CDC and OSHA guidelines while respecting individual rights and privacy considerations associated with testing.

Active Virus Shedding - SWAB

Molecular PCR TEST


FAQ: COVID-19 qPCR Test (Coronavirus - SARS-CoV-2)

What does the labs test identify?

The labs COVID-19 qPCR Test identifies the SARS CoV-2. This testing method utilizes RT-PCR (real-time reverse transcriptase PCR) technology, and will confirm the virus is present and active (replication, shedding). Although, it is unclear the exact timelines of all stages.

Does the labs test measure viral antibodies or viral load?

The labs test is not an antibody test.  The labs test confirms if the virus is currently present in the sample and does NOT measure antibody levels or viral load.

What is the labs turnaround time (TAT) for results?

Once the sample collection kit is received, the turnaround time (TAT) for results is 24-72 hours.

Who receives the results?

The clinician assigned by THE I.V. DOC will receive an email with a secure link to their Clinician Portal. The clinician will then login to their secure Clinician Portal to generate the report.

How do you take the test?

Nasopharyngeal, oropharyngeal, and anterior nare swabs are all available. Detailed collection instructions will be provided by your nurse and physician.

In clinical lab terms, what is the collection procedure?

The COVID-19 virus nucleic acid will be extracted from throat swab samples, 1-step reverse transcription of RNA from the virus and amplification via PCR for a combined method known as real-time reverse transcriptase PCR (RT-PCR). An internal positive control will be included to ensure that the test performed correctly and that the RT-PCR reaction has not been inhibited. 



Antibody Testing - BLOOD TEST

What are IgM and IgG antibodies?

IgM is usually the first, specific antibody type generated by the body in response to infection. Your body usually generates these antibodies as its first line of defense against a foreign virus and can develop as soon as 3-5 days.

IgG antibody “is a protein that the body produces in the late stages of infection (possibly 21 days or greater) and may remain for up to months and possibly years after a person has recovered.”

IgM and IgG fight infections by targeting specific antigens on the surface of the SARS-nCoV-2 virus.

How is the Antibodies (Blood) test different from the Rt-qPCR,DNA (Swab) test?

The RT-qPCR,DNA test determines if the individual is infected with SARS-CoV-2 and considered to be able to transmit the disease (a positive test) or is negative for the virus. This test cannot tell whether a person is immune from past infection or has yet to be exposed and is still in danger.

The IgG & IgM antibodies test is based on the quantitative detection of IgM and IgG that are specifically generated by the body in response to SARS-CoV-2 infection. This can be used to determine recent & past exposure.

Researchers said having the IgG antibodies gives you protection from the virus -- but it doesn’t mean you’re immune for the rest of your life. You could get sick again. Still, they’re calling the test a milestone towards getting life back to normal.

Clinical Significance of Utilizing the DNA (swab) test along with the Antibodies (blood) test.

Antibody tests for COVID-19 cannot confirm the presence of the virus in your system at the present day. It can only tell whether you have been exposed in the past or if you have never been exposed to SARS-CoV-2. Consequently, it should only be used alone as a screening test and should be used in tandem with a genetic-based test to determine a complete status.

Our Lab Partners IgM & IgG Qualititave and possible Quantitative Antibody Tests

Our lab partners IgG & IgM testing is performed in their CLIA High Complexity specialty lab on dedicated, automated instrumentation which is listed with the FDA and testing is EUA authorized.

Our lab partners provide a qualitative report and potentially a quantitative report, which not only informs of detection, but also quantifies the amount of antibodies detected.

The Key To getting Americans Back To Work

Scaling up COVID-19 IgG & IgM testing will help piece together a clear picture of how many Americans may have already been infected, built immunity and can get back to work. This is critical to re-opening the economy, and Access is here to help, one test at a time.

"Serological tests will enable us to determine what percentage of the population has been exposed to the virus," says Joanne Bartkus, PhD, director of the Minnesota Department of Health's (MDH's) Public Health Laboratory Division. "If we understand or find that a certain level of antibody does confer immunity to further infection, well, then that can be used to determine maybe who can go back to work, or who is less likely to be able to transmit the virus." - Joanne Bartkus, PhD.


The FDA has provided our lab partners Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for COVID19 Tests.  Our partner laboratories are certified under CLIA to perform high-complexity testing. It's important to know that a negative [antibody testing] result do not preclude acute COVID19 (SARS-CoV-2) infection. If acute infection is suspected, direct testing for COVID-19 is necessary [swab / molecular - PCR testing]. Results from antibody testing should not be used to diagnose or exclude acute COVID-19 infection. Positive results may be due to past or present infection with non-COVID-19 coronavirus strains, such as coronavirus HKU1, NL63, OC43, or 229E.
