Please review this document for the most recent SARS-CoV-2 Testing Sensitivity (PPA) and Specificity (NPA) information.
Regional Medical Laboratory continues to be a valuable leader at the forefront of the Coronavirus pandemic, having conducted more than 131,000 SARS-CoV-2 PCR tests over the last 4 months to meet the COVID-19 testing needs of the communities we serve.
We are conducting this testing 24x7, across 3 robust testing platforms (6 instruments) with the capacity to perform 2200 tests per day. We are currently providing SARS-COV-2 PCR results within 24 hours of the receipt of the specimen at the testing laboratory.
We are also pleased to announce that we have secured additional testing capacity and a 7th SARS-CoV-2 PCR testing instrument will be added to our central laboratory by early September. The additional instrument will increase our daily capacity from 2200 to 3100 tests per day.
We are committed to provisioning this much needed testing to the communities we serve as we partner with you to insure the health of our population. We will continue to increase our capacity and source supplies to meet the demand as a trusted partner in the fight against the pandemic.
