Pathnostics Launches COVID-19 PCR Test, A Laboratory-Based Molecular Test

 

On May 04, 2020, Pathnostics launched our COVID-19 PCR testing. Additional information available in our PRESS RELEASE. 

What makes a PCR test different from a serology (blood) test?  

  • PCR detects the genetic information of the virus.  That’s only possible if the virus is there and someone is actively infected.
  • The COVID-19 PCR Test is a sensitive molecular test that targets the detection of three SARS-CoV 2 genes and provides information as to those patients that are currently infectious. 
  • PCR test results give a good indication of who is infected.  This is information that can break the transmission chain of the virus. 

 

The COVID-19 PCR Test offers:  

  • Simple specimen collection – Samples are collected with a nasal swab, which is fast and painless.
  • Safe chain of custody measures – Samples are transferred from the patient to the lab in a proprietary buffer that inactivates the virus, keeping the healthcare and other essential workers safe during specimen transit. 
  • No out-of-pocket costs for insured patients.
  • Cash pay price is $100.
