Traditional PCR COVID-19 tests take quite awhile to process due to lengthy sample preparation for the highlight sensitive laboratory test. This is why most labs have a long turnaround of 72 hours before results are available. CommunityLab can provide PCR COVID test results within 24 hours of when the sample is received due to a cutting edge method developed at Yale University specifically for COVID-19 PCR testing called SalivaDirect™.
Training requires viewing a short video and completing a short quiz.
Once you activate the kit and have results, you may submit the receipt for reimbursement by your insurance provider.
The kit is considered a medical item and can be purchased using an HSA/FSA fund.
A COVID PCR test requires highly specialized laboratory equipment to run. So, while you may find collection materials for a PCR test in some stores, the PCR COVID test itself can only be run in a laboratory with the proper authorization. The extremely sensitive equipment provides more reliable results than common rapid tests, which is why a PCR COVID-19 test is required for things such as travel.
Due to sample preparation requirements, most labs offering COVID-19 PCR testing provide results within 48-72 hours. However, CommunityLab uses a cutting-edge method called SalivaDirect™ developed by Yale University specifically for quicker COVID-19 PCR results. Using this special technique, CommunityLab can provide quick COVID PCR results within 24 hours of when the lab receives the sample.
