Differences in Testing Methods

TYPES of Tests
There are two different types of tests – diagnostic tests and antibody tests.

  1. diagnostic test can show if you have an active coronavirus infection and should take steps to quarantine or isolate yourself from others. Currently there are two types of diagnostic tests which detect the virus – molecular tests, such as RT-PCR tests, that detect the virus’s genetic material, and antigen tests that detect specific proteins on the surface of the virus.
  2. An antibody test looks for antibodies that are made by your immune system in response to a threat, such as a specific virus. Antibodies can help fight infections. Antibodies can take several days or weeks to develop after you have an infection and may stay in your blood for several weeks or more after recovery. Because of this, antibody tests should not be used to diagnose an active coronavirus infection. At this time researchers do not know if the presence of antibodies means that you are immune to the coronavirus in the future.
Molecular Antigen Antibody
Other Names Diagnostic test, viral test, molecular test, nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT), RT-PCR test, LAMP test Rapid diagnostic test

(Some molecular tests are also rapid tests.)

Serological test, serology, blood test, serology test
Sample Collection Nasal or throat swab (most tests)

Saliva (a few tests)

Nasal or throat swab  Finger stick or blood draw
Results Same day (some locations)

or up to a week

One hour or less Same day (many locations)

or 1-3 days

Secondary Confirmation This test is typically highly accurate and usually does not need to be repeated. Positive results are usually highly accurate but negative results may need to be confirmed with a molecular test. Sometimes a second antibody test is needed for accurate results.
Diagnosis Diagnoses active coronavirus infection Diagnoses active coronavirus infection Shows if you’ve been infected by coronavirus in the past
Limitations Will not show if you ever had COVID-19 or were infected with the coronavirus in the past Will not definitively rule out active coronavirus infection. Antigen tests are more likely to miss an active coronavirus infection compared to molecular tests. Your health care provider may order a molecular test if your antigen test shows a negative result but you have symptoms of COVID-19. Will not diagnose active coronavirus infection at the time of the test or show that you do not have COVID-19
