On-site Testing Q & A

What is on-site testing?

On-site testing is a group of diagnostic procedures that analyze blood, urine, or saliva samples. Some of the on-site testing services offered at Everyday Urgent Care include:

  • COVID-19 PCR in 30 minutes
  • Rapid COVID-19 antigen testing
  • Streptococcal infections (strep throat)
  • Influenza A/B
  • Mononucleosis
  • Pregnancy Testing
  • Rapid HIV
  • Male and Female STD Panels
  • 14-Panel Drug Screen
  • Rapid RSV
  • Diabetic Screening

These screening measures can diagnose underlying medical issues that don’t present noticeable symptoms, like diabetes, hormonal imbalances, or nutritional deficiencies.

What are some examples of on-site testing?

At Everyday Urgent Care, the team offers several types of on-site testing, including:

Purified protein derivative (PPD) skin test

A PPD skin test is an outpatient procedure that diagnoses tuberculosis. Before a PPD test, your provider cleans your inner forearm with an antiseptic solution. Then, they inject a solution of PPD beneath your skin.

Two or three days later, you return to Everyday Urgent Care. If your skin swells up, turns red, or itches in response to the injection, it may mean you have tuberculosis. 

Hepatitis B test

During a Hepatitis B test, your Everyday Urgent Care provider draws a sample of your blood. Then, they send the sample to a laboratory that analyzes it for the presence of viral proteins. Hepatitis B can’t be cured, but it’s possible to prevent spreading the infection to others.

Lipid panel

A lipid panel measures the amount of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), high-density lipoprotein (HDL), and triglycerides in your blood. High lipid levels indicate an increased risk of heart disease. Fortunately, it’s possible to improve your lipid levels through diet, exercise, and medication.

Urinalysis

Urinalysis is an on-site test that analyzes a sample of your urine. The team at Everyday Urgent Care uses urine analysis to diagnose issues like diabetes and kidney disease. 

Cultures

A culture is a laboratory test that diagnoses a viral or bacterial infection. To take a culture, your Everyday Urgent Care provider collects a sample of saliva or mucus from your throat or nose.

What type of on-site testing will benefit me?

The type of on-site testing that will most benefit you depends on several factors, including your age, medical records, and the symptoms you’re experiencing. After an exam, your Everyday Urgent Care provider can order tests that align with your needs.
