How is a COVID-19 PCR test performed?

A PCR test is typically conducted either by a nasal swab, throat swab, or saliva collection. A nasal swab or throat swab test requires the insertion of a swab into your nose and/or the back of your throat. A saliva test requires providing a sample of your spit into a collection tube.

The version of the IBX Test offered by Concentric by Ginkgo is a saliva-based test.
