What Are The Types of COVID Tests?

At Cannon Pharmacy, you can choose from the following types of COVID tests: 

Antibody Tests

Antibody tests detect antibodies in your blood, which determine if you had the virus at any point. Antibody tests do not identify any active infections. We offer antibody tests at both our Kannapolis Main and Mooresville locations.

Antigen Tests

Antigen tests, also known as Rapid tests, identify viral proteins in your saliva to determine if you are infected. Antigen tests normally provide results quickly. We offer antigen tests at both our Kannapolis Main and Mooresville locations.
