Flattening the Curve with COVID-19 Tests for Adults and Children of All Ages

217 West 79th Street, New York, NY 10024


Open 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM | Seven Days a Week 

Tests For Adults and Children of All Ages


We perform only  rt-PCR (reverse transcriptase-Polymerase Chain Reaction) tests with test results emailed to you within one hour or four-hours depending on your needs. We take an anterior nasal sample from both nostrils and process it directly in our center. We can perform testing on adults and children of any age.

We use the Mesa Biotech Accula testing platform. It uses a combination of rt-PCR and lateral flow assay to yield accurate rapid results. 

For school aged children, we can complete school forms that you provide verifying test results.

For people traveling, we can provide a travel letter to support your travel plans. You must check with your destination country to ensure that our test will be acceptable and we cannot be responsible for your travel requirements. 

Note: rt-PCR tests with rapid results are not accepted by the Caribbean islands of Antigua and Anguilla.



We are happy to accommodate your in-home or on-location testing needs!

We have experience providing testing services to television and movie productions, special events and family gatherings. We have several testing options available to meet your needs.
