4 Tests. 1 Swab. All in one convenient visit.
Urgent care visits don’t need to be an endless string of tests. With Mercy Urgent Care, one swab can now provide four results. Our 4-Plex testing option provides fast RT-PCR results for influenza A&B, COVID-19, and RSV. This creates faster, more comfortable urgent care visits and accurate results. When you aren’t feeling your best, spend less time guessing what you may have and get quick answers at your nearest Mercy Urgent Care location.
How does a 4-plex test work?
A 4-Plex test option works to detect all four illnesses (influenza A&B, COVID-19, and RSV) in a single RT-PCR test sample. Using a sample collected on a nasal swab, an in-house PCR machine processes that sample to determine if any flu, COVID-19, or RSV cells are present. The test can be performed on ages 6 months and up.
When to consider a 4-plex test:
• Coughing or sneezing
• Headache or fatigue
• Fever over 100.4 degrees
• Nasal or chest congestion
• Muscle aches
• No known COVID-19 exposure
