PCR Testing in Houston, TX

Medical Care Services

For COVID-19 evaluation and diagnosis, we offer PCR testing which is performed with a nasal swab using the Biofire FilmArray Respiratory Panel. Our test is unique in that it can test for up to 22 organisms and is one of the fastest methods in detecting harmful pathogens. This instrument uses state-of-the-art polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing which extracts and detects viral and bacterial RNA proteins from nasopharyngeal samples (nasal swab), and this is an extremely sensitive and specific test (over 97% accurate) that produces results in under one hour.

The Advantage of Gemini Testing

Because our modern lab facilities are on-site, we can provide faster results without having to wait for findings to come back from off-site labs. This allows our physicians to quickly analyze results and create personalized treatment plans for each individual patient. Our tests are also authorized for international travel, allowing you to have peace of mind when planning future excursions.

How We Interpret Results

We try not to use PCR testing as the sole treatment plan to manage your symptoms or conditions due to limitations within the test. All results will be seen by our specialists and physicians to determine the best action plan for your results.

PCR testing will come out with two types of results, including:

  • Negative – A negative test results translates to zero findings or evidence the virus DNA or RNA is present.
  • Positive – If your test comes back positive, this indicates the virus DNA or RNA is present, but please keep in mind this does not necessarily mean that you are ill or contagious.

We are very excited to offer this cutting-edge technology to our patients. There is no out of pocket charges for most insurances. For uninsured patients, we offer a cash price for this 45 minute PCR COVID-19 testing of $300.

If you would like to learn more about our PCR Testing, including how we can help you, please get in touch with us at (281) 572-5505 today.
