FAQs

Who can get tested?

While seated, the patient will tilt their head back 70 degrees while the lab staff gently inserts a dry flocked swab into the nostril along the septum floor of the nose extending straight back until the posterior nasopharynx is reached (distance from the nostrils to external opening of ear). The swab will be rotated several times while the swab is inserted to ensure optimal collection.

The cost due at the time of collection will be $100.00 and will include both the collection and testing charges.
