Bloom's Saliva COVID Test:

This test is RT-PCR which is the gold standard according to the CDC for the analysis of Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19).
Saliva has a higher limit of detection than the swabs, but that is offset by Saliva having a higher viral load than is typically found in the naso specimens, so that offsets the effect of the higher limit of detection.

No. This is a molecular diagnostic test. This is a test to determine if there is an active infection and it is detected by RT-PCR. When the virus is active, it can be found in the upper and lower respiratory system. The antibody test is typically conducted after the infection has passed, and it is a blood test.

RT-PCR stands for Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction. It is a process where the DNA is extracted from the sample and it goes through a process where the DNA is amplified from a small amount to a large amount that is easily detectable by the instrument.

Bloom's Antibody Test:

Bloom offers testing for both active COVID cases as well as the antibody test.

Yes. People can still spread the virus while showing absolutely no symptoms. We recommend an antibody test for people of all ages and demographics.

Yes, Bloom provides the most in-depth testing available. Allowing effective detection of COVID-A9 antibodies.

Yes. Our test will discover if your antibodies suggest that you have been exposed to the coronavirus.

A negative test indicates that your sample did not reveal the presence of COVID-19 antibodies.

We test your sample with five COVID-19 proteins to discover the presence of antibodies in your blood.

Anybody and everybody should get tested for antibodies. If you’ve had any public contact, it is a good idea to get tested for antibodies.

The COVID-19 antibody test measures the presence of antibodies against all five COVID-19 proteins in your blood, which is higher than the industry standard of two. Our test checks for immune response to
Anti-Nucleocapsid IgG and IgM
Anti-Spike S1 RBD IgG and IgM
Anti-Spike S1S2 IgG and IgM
Anti-Spike S2 IgG and IgM
Anti-Spike S1 IgG and IgM

We will email you with access to a secure patient portal where you can view your results.
