Tests For Adults and Children of All Ages
We perform only rapid rt-PCR (reverse transcriptase-Polymerase Chain Reaction) tests with either four-hour or one hour results. 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 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.
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.
