1 doctor agrees

In brief: About an hour

Point of care test may be available in a matter of minutes.
Test done in the main lab takes about and hour. However, it usually takes longer for the results to get back to the ordering doctor due to time taken for blood collection, transportation to the lab, processing in the lab, recording of results. Retesting in a limited number of cases etc.
