Types of COVID-19 Testing in San Antonio
See below for a list of Covid-19 tests available at our facilities at Full Spectrum Emergency Room and Urgent Care, as well as a brief overview of each test.
- Antigen Test (Rapid Test) – Designed to detect protein from the virus in anyone infected. It is made specifically to find any presence of harmful and contagious active virus cells.
- SARS-CoV-2 (PCR Swab) – This type of testing is considered the “Gold Standard” for testing COVID-19 infections. Our Emergency Room offers the PCR test in-house with our moderate complexity lab for rapid detection and treatment. Our Urgent Care can provide PCR testing via reference lab with results available in 24-48 hours through a patient portal.
- SARS-COV-2, AntiBody (Blood Test) - Antibody tests detect any known infections by looking at your blood. Results may be detected in the serum and plasma samples of infected patients 7–10 days after infection. Our Urgent Care can provide antibody testing via reference lab with results available in 24-48 hours through a patient portal.
Monoclonal Antibody COVID-19 Treatment
The FDA has granted Emergency Use Authorization monoclonal antibody infusion therapy (bebtelovimab). This is used to treat mild to moderate coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in adults and pediatric patients.
What is bebtelovimab?
Bebtelovimab is a neutralizing antibody drug. When there’s a virus in your body, like COVID-19, your immune system makes antibodies to fight it off. But it takes time for your body to make antibodies for a new virus — and in the meantime, you could get very sick. Bebtelovimab contains man made antibodies to help fight the virus. They do not have any COVID-19 virus in them. Bebtelovimab is an investigational medicine used for the treatment of mild-to-moderate coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in adults and children (12 years of age and older weighing at least 88 pounds [40 kg]).
At Full Spectrum Emergency Room, we are taking preventative measures for our community by closely monitoring national and statewide updates relating to the novel coronavirus (COVID19). Fortunately for our community, Full Spectrum ER has been designated as an approved site to administer monoclonal antibody therapies to combat the COVID19 pandemic. Offering the latest developments in treating COVID-19 is just one of many ways we are contributing to slowing the spread of the virus in the San Antonio area. You must qualify and/or meet certain requirements which requires a physician evaluation and order. Call us if you have any questions over this Monoclonal Antibody COVID-19 Treatment.
