COVID-19 Testing Redding

Lab24 as seen on KRCR, “Lab 24 provides free COVID-19 test with rapid 48 hour result turnaround.”

What to Expect

Before the test, you will need to fill out a simple form with your contact information. Then you will answer a few questions related to COVID-19 exposure and any symptoms you may have, and your insurance information, if you have it. If you do not have insurance we can bill the Federal CARES act. You must bring your social security card and driver’s license if billing through the Federal CARES act.

During the test, our trained lab personnel will swipe a sterile nasal swab about ¾ inches (.5 cm) into your nose. The swab will be “swirled” for about 10 seconds in each nostril and then the test is complete.

What’s PCR Testing?

PCR (nasal swab testing) is recognized by the FDA as the most accurate and reliable form of COVID-19 testing.

The test detects the presence of COVID-19 genetic material (RNA) using a technique called reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction, or RT-PCR. RNA is extracted from your sample and transcribed to DNA. Then the DNA is amplified (many copies are made) so that the lab can obtain a meaningful result.
