COVID-19   

Accurate and timely testing results to support a safe workplace and community

Ensuring the health and safety of your patients, employees and community at large requires a complete and robust solution for fast COVID-19 screening.

 

To aid in the effort to combat the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, National Labs offers a full-service package that includes both front-end specimen collection as well as back-end testing support, all by a state-of-the-art lab using the most current technology and methods.

 

Partnering with counties, public health departments, hospitals, clinics, businesses, schools, and long term care facilities, we use the RT-PCR testing method under EUA (emergency use authorization) based on anterior nares, nasopharyngeal, and saliva specimen types. We also look at 3 genetic markers, instead of just 2, which can capture known COVID variants while eliminating concern over false negatives.

  • Average turnaround time of less than 24 hours post-specimen receipt

  • Full service, onsite facility testing, and specimen collection
