COVID-19 Testing

The Methodology
GenelQ utilizes real-time reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) testing. Our COVID-19 testing methodology includes several assays that have received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). These include the Lyra Direct Dry Swab assay from Quidel and the TaqPath COVID-19 Multiplex assay from ThermoFisher Scientific. By diversifying our COVID-19 assay portfolio, we have a steady supply of reagents and consumables to fulfill the demand for testing. We use leading ThermoFisher PCR instrumentation, which includes the QuantStudio 7Pro and the QuantStudio 12K Flex.
Our gold standard PCR testing for COVID-19 is best in class and we are committed to providing the following:
Accuracy
  • 100% specificity (True Negative)
  • 98.5% sensitivity (True Positive)
Methodology
  • Non-invasive nasal methodology that can be self-administered
Efficiency
  • A highly efficient, automated lab process with a 24-hour turnaround time of results from the time of receipt
Technology
  • Real-time, electronic viewing of results via our HIPAA-compliant portal

  • Convenient overnight shipping and courier services

  • PCR Gold Standard for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) testing

We also offer Antigen Testing:

Our SARS Antigen Test is a lateral flow immunoassay that allows for the rapid, qualitative detection of the nucleocapsid protein antigen from SARS-CoV-2 in anterior nares (NS) swab specimens directly from individuals who are suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider within the first five days of the onset of symptoms or from individuals without symptoms or other epidemiological reasons to suspect COVID-19 when tested twice over two or three days with at least 24 hours and no more than 36 hours between tests. Our SARS Antigen Test provides accurate and reliable results in 10 minutes.

COVIDPLUS

A 3-in-1 Advantage
Our COVIDPLUS test is the same premium PCR test as our standalone COVID test, but with a 3-in-1 advantage. This multiplex panel enables healthcare providers to quickly and accurately diagnose between the three major respiratory viruses. 

This multiplex approach eliminates the need for multiple tests or doctor visits so patients can quickly get on the right treatment plan post onset of symptoms.
  • SARS-COV-2 (COVID-19)

  • INFLUENZA A/B (FLU A/B)

 

  • RESPIRATORY SYNCYTIAL VIRUS (RSV)/THE COMMON COLD

With the use of one non-invasive anterior nasal swab, we can detect:
