Front-line technology now allows screening for multiple viruses at one time with one sample.
Throughout the pandemic, accurate testing for Coronavirus has been an important part of our personal and professional lives. We also know that other viruses including influenza and RSV are very common. No matter what the bug, getting healthy and back to family, friends, and work is crucial. Now with combination rapid rt-PCR COVID-19, flu A/B, and RSV testing, you can get a diagnosis, get the treatment you need, and get back sooner. A single swab allows for testing and provides a positive or negative result for all four viruses. These results can then be reviewed by our licensed healthcare provider to determine the best course of action for treatment.
The combination COVID, influenza A/B, and RSV test is a rapid 30-40 minute rt-PCR test performed by taking a nasal or nasopharyngeal swab. Much like a standard COVID test, a swab is briefly inserted in the nasal passage by a highly trained technician to collect secretions. The secretions are then mixed with a reagent solution, and the specimen is safely dispensed into the testing unit. After about 30-45 minutes, test results for SARS-COV-2, influenza A, influenza B, and RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) will be available.
Since there are so many different treatment options for both COVID-19, the flu, and RSV it’s important for your healthcare provider to know exactly what your diagnosis is so that treatment can be administered appropriately. Because all of these viruses have many of the same symptoms, it can be very difficult, if not impossible, to determine which one is causing illness without a lab test. Without the combo test, patients could be sent to multiple locations for multiple samples. This can be costly and may waste valuable treatment time.
Anyone with symptoms is eligible for the Covid-19/Flu/RSV combo test. It is recommended that those with a history of sinus issues or patients who have had sinus surgery in the past should consult with their ENT prior to receiving the test. If you have had any concerns with standard COVID tests or have any other questions about testing, please contact us or your healthcare professional.

Yes, multiple viruses can be present at the same time.
COVID, flu, and RSV viruses can be spread through close contact with infected individuals. Because they are spread via respiratory droplets after coughing, sneezing, or even talking, they can also be transmitted through contact with a surface where the virus is present.
According to the CDC, COVID-19 is considered more contagious than the flu or RSV. However, all three viruses are highly transmissible. How long each virus is contagious before and after symptoms are present varies and is slightly different between them.
Influenza A and Influenza B typically result in the same type, length, and severity of illness. The main difference is that type A is generally more commonly seen than type B.
