COVID-19 SOLUTIONS

Confidence in results is key to controlling the spread and ultimately eliminating the virus known as COVID-19. Gravity Diagnostics is your partner when it comes to testing that is FDA and CDC compliant, with clinical expertise that give you confidence that you are providing the highest standard diagnosis and patient care.

It’s important to minimize false-positive and false-negative test results by choosing an assay with high specificity and sensitivity. Gravity Diagnostics has invested in state-of-the-art COVID-19 testing equipment.

Specificity: The test’s ability to correctly identify those without the disease (limiting false positive)

Sensitivity: The test’s ability to correctly identify those with the disease (limiting false negative)

THE INFECTION CYCLE OF A VIRUS

The graph shown below should be used as a guide to help you best indicate what testing is best needed at certain times in the infection cycle of a virus.

When the virus enters your body, it starts multiplying, and you may or may not have symptoms.

As the virus multiplies, the body begins to react to the viral antigens, possibly resulting in symptoms.

As your body starts to fight off infection, your immune system produces IgM antibodies.

As your body continues to fight off infection, it produces fewer IgM antibodies and more long-lasting IgG antibodies.

GRAVITY SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR

(Performed w/Swab)

Early stage of infection, and early onset of symptoms. A PCR test detects the virus’s genetic material. These tests require a more complex technology to get results.

Gravity’s PCR Test Specificity / Sensitivity

100% Specific / 96% Sensitive

(C.I. 96.8%-100%/92.8%-99.9%)

Turn-around Time: 24-48 Hours

Collection Methods: Nasal, Nasopharyngeal, and Oropharyngeal.
(Saliva - Collection Method Alternative)

ANTIBODY TESTING IgM GRAVITY SARS-CoV-2 IgM

(Performed w/Serum)

IgM is present during an active to late phase infection. The body is fighting COVID-19. The immune system is producing antibodies, which can last 1-8 weeks.

Specificity / Sensitivity of Gravity’s Antibody IgM Test

99.56% Specific / 95% Sensitive

Turn-around Time: 24 Hours

ANTIBODY TESTING IgG GRAVITY SARS-CoV-2 IgG

(Performed w/Serum)

IgM is post infection. The patient is starting to feel better as the body continues to fight off infection. As it does, your body replaces the short-term IgM with long-term IgG antibodies.

Specificity / Sensitivity of Gravity’s Antibody IgG Test

99.6% Specific / 100% Sensitive

Turn-around Time: 24 Hours
