Diagnostic Tests for COVID-19
1. NAAT (Nucleic Acid Amplification Test) is a type of viral diagnostic test for COVID-19. NAATs detect genetic material (nucleic acids).
NAATs can use many different methods to amplify nucleic acids and detect the virus, including but not limited to:
Isothermal amplification including
Transcription mediated amplification (TMA)
Loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP)
Helicase-dependent amplification (HDA)
Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)
Strand displacement amplification (SDA)
2. Lateral flow tests (LFT/LFD)
3. Antibody (or serology tests)
IgM antibody test
Tests that we provide at Samui Home Clinic
Real time RT-PCR (Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction)
Universally accepted by ALL countries that require a pre-departure test.
NEAR (Nicking Endonuclease Amplification Reaction)
The average turn around time is less than 1 hour
Countries that accept NEAR test
Qualitative COVID-19 antigen test
Antigen tests are immunoassays that detect the presence of COVID-19 antigen, which indicates COVID-19 current infection.
Less sensitivity than real time RT-PCR and NAATs
Quick results within 15-30 mins
Antibodies are detected in the blood of people who have been previously infected with COVID-19 or vaccinated against COVID-19.
