World-Class Air Purification Systems that reduce COVID particles during your visit:

AFC Urgent Care Denver has installed state-of-the-art air filtration and COVID-19 filtration technology to ensure that your exposure to the virus is as limited as possible during your visit. The technology, which is developed by Global Phasma Solutions (GPS), effectively reduces a significant portion of infectious COVID-19 particles in the neary air. COVID-19 spreads via respiratory particles and requires an innovative solution to ensure that all patients get tested without an incidental exposure to the virus. Here is how the system works, per GPS: 

“Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NPBI) technology safely creates and releases ions into the airstream using your existing HVAC system as the delivery method. When these ions disperse throughout a space, they seek out and form bonds with particles in the air through a process called agglomeration. This creates a snowball effect in which particles begin to cluster together. The larger a cluster of particles becomes, the easier it is for your system to safely filter it out of the air.”

Recent studies of GPS’s air filtration systems found that COVID pathogens were reduced by 90% in sensitivity studies using NBPI  and by nearly 99% when observed in a speciality study.

Rapid COVID-19 Testing Basics

A Rapid COVID-19 test is an antigen test that can quickly detect the presence of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Rapid COVID testing uses a swab like a standard diagnostic test, which is then inserted into a Fluorescent Immunoassay (FIA) scan to detect the presence of COVID-19. 

Rapid tests with an FIA can bring back patient results on the same day of testing and with high levels of accuracy. It is also important to know that an antigen test is far different than an antibody test: an antibody test determines if a patient with a previous COVID-19 infection developed antibodies that fight off the virus. The rapid test determines if a patient currently has COVID-19.
