CP Lab Safety Introduces New At-Home COVID-19 PCR Testing Kits
NOVATO, Calif. (Nov. 19, 2020) - CP Lab Safety, a Woman Owned Small Business in Marin County, California, announced their new at-home saliva collection kit for COVID-19 Testing. This process uses (RT)-PCR technology (Real Time Polymerase Chain Reaction) to diagnose active infections of the virus. The sample is gathered at home and shipped to a certified laboratory. Once it is received at the lab, 99% of test results are available within 24 hours. These saliva collection test kits are designed for quick and easy at-home diagnosis of COVID-19 coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).
“We are so excited about our at-home PCR test for Coronavirus. Now anyone can simply purchase our ‘at home’ kit and learn whether they are infected with coronavirus within a few days. Consumers purchase the kit online. Once received, they collect about 2 mL of their saliva, seal the package and drop it off at FedEx for expedited shipment to our CLIA certified laboratory. Once the lab has the sample, the customer will get the results of their COVID test within 24 hours,” said Kelly Farhangi Najafi, CEO of CP Lab Safety.
The saliva submitted is subject to a real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test to qualitatively detect nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2, as recommended by the CDC.
These tests are available online at CP Lab Safety’s website.
