Progressive Diagnostics is a value-based medical management and data analytics clinical laboratory with expertise in Toxicology and Infectious Disease.
The Progressive Difference
The use of laboratory urine drug testing is an essential tool that helps providers and individuals ensure patient safety, medication compliance and prevention of drug diversion. Progressive Diagnostics uses a combination of fully automated chemistry analyzers, high complexity triple quadrupole tandem mass spectrometers, Smart Informatics™ technology and teams of scientists and medical professionals to deliver the industry’s highest standard of care, level of accuracy and fastest turn-around times.
Progressive Virus/PCR (Saliva) Testing
FDA EUA authorized saliva testing for CLIA certified laboratories (not rapid tests) are accurate, non-invasive and simple to use for individuals of all ages. Simply provide a saliva sample in a FDA authorized collection device at our Patient Service Center and accurate and secure results will be delivered typically within 48 hours.
Virus/PCR testing may be right for you if you are currently experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or believe that you might have been recently exposed to the virus. Common COVID-19 symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath and many flu-like symptoms. People infected with the COVID-19 virus can have a range of mild symptoms to severe illness and the symptoms can appear two to 14 days after being exposed to the virus. Children have similar symptoms to adults but generally have a mild illness. Results from this type of test will help to diagnose whether you have an active COVID-19 infection.
Even if you do not have any symptoms it is recommended that you get tested in certain situations, for example: if you are a health care worker; first responder; congregate care facility resident or staff (includes nursing homes, assisted living facilities, managed residential communities, correctional institutions); or living in communities at high risk. You should also be tested, even if you are asymptomatic, if you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 virus without having adequate protection. In addition, virus/PCR testing is also mandatory per certain travel regulations and for various medical procedures.
A positive diagnosis can help guide you and your provider make an informed decision about self-isolating to protect your family, friends and coworkers.
Progressive COVID-19 Antibody (Blood) Testing
We are offering an FDA EUA-authorized antibody test with a simple blood test designed to detect the body’s natural immune response to the COVID-19 virus infection. Antibody tests may be helpful to individuals who do not currently have symptoms but believe that they may have been previously infected with the COVID-19 virus.
A positive result can help you and your healthcare provider determine when to return to work and/or reconnect with friends and family.
A negative result indicates that you have not been infected with the COVID-19 virus. Your healthcare provider can help you determine how best to remain vigilant about your exposure to the virus.
The SARS-CoV-2 Antibody test will report “Detected” or “Not Detected”. If the lab report states “Detected” it means that the individual has developed antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and if the lab report states “Not Detected”, it means that the individual has NOT developed antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
An Antibody, also called immunoglobulin, is a protective protein produced by the immune system in response to the presence of a foreign substance, called an antigen. A virus is an antigen. Antibodies recognize and latch onto antigens in order to remove them from the body.
