Centro Médico Maranatha

Hello, you are probably looking for a place to test for COVID-19 Antigen PCR Test Tulum and you have arrived here. This page is for you.

These tests detect the presence of the virus that causes COVID-19 disease at the moment. It is performed in patients with symptoms of the disease or with suspected contagion. It is processed from a pharyngeal swab sample.

* Update May 2022: Some countries require specific tests such as PCR and some accept rapid antigen test within ONE-DAY rule, 24 or 72 hrs. Before your trip. Please check with the airline/country for the specific proof you require.

** Note: December 2nd, 2021: The US Government and the WHO is giving new recommendations regarding a new threats from Variants like Delta and Omicron of Covid-19 Please check the new official changes and recommendations.

*** Note: May 2022: According to the World Health Organization (WHO) the variants of concern (VoC) remain Delta and Omicron. There are new variants under observation like: Epsilon, Zeta, Eta, Theta, Iota, Kappa, Lambda and Mu.***

Antigen PCR Test Tulum


COVID-19 is the disease caused by a new coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. The WHO first learned about this new virus on December 31, 2019, following a report of a cluster of "viral pneumonia" cases in Wuhan, People's Republic of China.


The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, dry cough and tiredness. Other less common symptoms that affect some patients include aches and pains, nasal congestion, headache, conjunctivitis, sore throat, diarrhea, loss of taste or smell, and skin rashes or color changes. on the fingers or toes. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some of the infected people have only very mild symptoms.

Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without the need for hospital treatment. About 1 in 5 people who contract COVID-19 end up with severe illness and experience breathing difficulties.


The CDC in the United States says that there are three COVID-19 vaccines for which certain regulatory authorities in the US have authorized their use. None have yet received EUL / PQ clearance from WHO, but we expect an evaluation of the Pfizer vaccine is expected by the end of December and some other candidates shortly thereafter.

Even if you are vaccinated you should know that you can get reinfected. There are new variations of the SARS-CoV-2 spreading in Mexico and around the world.

In Mexico the COFEPRIS Authorized the Emergency Use of:

  • BioNTech, Pfizer
  • CanSino
  • CoronoaVac
  • Covaxin
  • Johnson & Johnson
  • Moderna
  • Oxford, AstraZeneca
  • Sputnik V

Tracking SARS-CoV-2 | Variants Delta, Omicron and the Future

All viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, change over time. Most changes have little to no impact on the virus’ properties. However, some changes may affect the virus’s properties, such as how easily it spreads, the associated disease severity, or the performance of vaccines, therapeutic medicines, diagnostic tools, or other public health and social measures.

Qualitative vs. Quantitative in Antibody Testing

When looking for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies, specialist doctors may require different tests depending on each individual case.

  • Nucleic Acid amplification Test (RT-PCR)
  • Nucleic Acid amplification Test (LAMP)
  • Nucleic Acid amplification Test (TMA)
  • Nucleic Acid amplification Test (CRT)
  • Nucleic Acid amplification Test (SmartAmp)
  • Nucleic Acid amplification Test (NEAR)
  • Next Generation Sequence (NGS)
  • Quantitative Antigen Test (CLEIA/ECLEIA)
  • Qualitative Antigen Test (Rapid).

Qualitative Testing

A qualitative test is better known as the rapid test, it is a test that determines the "Yes or No" if antibodies are present or not. However, this qualitative COVID test cannot measure the number of antibodies in the sample. It also does not indicate the person's immune response or its strength. It is only used to find out if the patient has developed antibodies.

Quantitative tests

A qualitative test terminates the yes "If there is" within the sample. While the quantitative or semi-quantitative test determines "how much" by measuring the levels of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in the blood sample, it can give a more definitive response to the immune system in response to the virus.

There is a lack of international standards, the FDA has not authorized any quantitative test, it is used as EUA, Emergency Use Authorization.

Much is still unknown about SARS-CoV-2. The fact that there is an immune response is not an indicator that there is an efficient response or that there is immunity or that an infection cannot be repeated.

What is the COVID-19 NAAT PCR test?

According to the Mayo Clinic, it is also known as the molecular test, it detects the genetic material of the virus that causes COVID-19 using a laboratory technique called polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The CPR test is very accurate when properly performed by a healthcare professional, but the rapid test may not detect some cases. This is a quantitative test.

What is the COVID-19 Antigen test?

The Mayo Clinic has talked about this kind of test for COVID-19 detects certain proteins in the virus. There is a greater chance of having a false negative result - which means that it is possible to be infected with the virus but have a negative result. This is a qualitative test.
