IMPORTANT: Samples MUST be received by the laboratory within 24-72 hours after the samples are collected.
COLLECTED SAMPLES TIME SENSITIVE: The padded envelope containing the collected samples and chain of custody must be sent to the laboratory via an expedited mail service.
TURNAROUND TIME: Regular Turnaround Time is 3-5 business days. For faster turnaround time please contact the laboratory.
How the Test Works: Environmental surface samples are collected using an aseptic swab with a synthetic tip that is extracted into a lysate buffer vial. These collected samples need to be received by Environmental Diagnostics Laboratory (EDLab) within 72-hours. The samples are then analyzed utilizing RT-qPCR technology for either a positive (present) or negative (not present) result.
Results are precise, consistent and accurate based on the RNA gene expression of the virus. Finally, EDLab sends a user friendly report that’s easy to understand and helpful in providing assurances or determining next steps depending on the results.
