The Influenza A & B molecular test provides results in less than 15 minutes, and it indicates a positive result in less than five minutes.
The Strep A 2 molecular test provides results in six minutes or less, and it shows a positive result in two minutes. Due to the sensitivity of this test, there is no need to send out for a throat culture if a negative result is produced.
