Original title: How to detect nucleic acid and antibody detection? Reporter's personal experience: 15 minutes to complete, 24 hours to produce resultsA few days ago, Wenzhou announced the price of new crown virus nucleic acid ( Covid-19 ) or Corna Virus and antibody testing, and many hospitals in our city have also opened nucleic acid and antibody appointment testing services to citizens (healthy people).
What is the inspection process?What precautions?
On May 8th, the reporter came to the physical examination center of the City Hospital of Integrated Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine to experience it. After making an appointment, the entire collection process takes only about 15 minutes and the inspection results can be issued within 24 hours. It is understood that after the hospital opened this service, more than 300 people have made appointments for testing in just 2 days.
ReservationThe reporter called to make an appointment a few days in advance and was scheduled to come to the medical examination center at 11 am on the 8th.
Check inAn ID card is required to apply for a medical card at the medical center. Divided into 2 steps of blood drawing and throat swab collection.
Blood draw, total antibody detection
After the blood draw is completed, collect the collection equipment with the medical cardThe medical card can print invoices.
Nucleic acid amplification testingCollection of throat swabs requires a ventilated environment, and the collection point is set outdoors. You need to open your mouth wide and have a slight discomfort in your throat, which makes you cough easily. This process can be completed in 1 minute.
24 hours report
According to the person in charge of the Medical Examination Center of the Hospital of Integrated Chinese and Western Medicine, the previous test was aimed at close contacts and confirmed patients. Many citizens called for consultations, hoping that the hospital would set up a testing service. After the hospital opened the service on May 7, more than 300 people have made an appointment in the past two days, including 3 teams (more than 100 people) and nearly 200 individuals.
In order to avoid aggregation, the test items need to be booked in advance by phone. In addition, it should be noted that the scope of medical insurance payment is limited to patients who have a hot clinic or have imaging features of new coronary pneumonia, and do not involve people who do not have fever symptoms. The cost of testing for asymptomatic people (healthy people) without symptoms is at their own expense.
A few days ago, Wenzhou announced the price of new coronavirus nucleic acid and antibody detection, new coronavirus IgG antibody (including total antibody) detection and new coronavirus IgM antibody detection projects, the trial price is 40 yuan / time. The newly added items are managed according to category A, and the scope of medical insurance payment is limited to patients with hot consultations or patients with new coronary pneumonia imaging features. The price of new coronavirus nucleic acid test remains unchanged at 111 yuan / time.
It is understood that serum antibody detection is an effective supplement to nucleic acid detection, and results are obtained by detecting the human body's immune response to viruses. If there is a new coronavirus infection recently, the body will produce antibodies (including lgM, lgG). Studies have found that lgM antibodies are generally produced after 7 days, and lgG antibodies are generally produced after 10 days. Antibody testing is easy to operate, and the waiting time for results is short. It can be used as a supplementary detection indicator for negative suspected cases of viral nucleic acid testing or used in conjunction with nucleic acid testing in suspected cases, as well as preliminary screening of patients with previous infections and asymptomatic infections. The results are usually produced within 24 hours.
