GeneIQ is a high-volume molecular diagnostic testing laboratory. Our state-of-the-art laboratory in the Dallas area services, long-term care facilities, physician practices, state and local governments, corporate return-to-work programs, and many organizations throughout the United States.
Knowing that the future of medicine will be based on individual DNA, not widespread one-size-fits-all diagnoses and prescriptions, we've built our laboratory and teams to harness the power of DNA and deliver smarter solutions tailored for the individual.
We have also created a highly efficient, automated lab process with a paperless, web-based system that provides 24-hour turnaround of results after receipt of the specimen. Our support and management teams are passionate about providing the highest level of service to our clients.
GenelQ utilizes real-time reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) testing. With leading-edge instrumentation, including QuantStudio 7, QuantStudio 12K instruments, and more, we can process several assays, including Lyra Direct Dry Swab from Quidel, TaqPath COVID-19 Multiplex from ThermoFisher Scientific, and others. In addition to our advanced, molecular testing capabilities, our COVID-19 testing methodology includes several assays that have received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Sample Collection Methodology
GenelQ offers all specimen collection methodologies for PCR COVID testing. Our most popular collection is primarily through anterior nares (shallow, dry swab) testing which is inserted three quarters of an inch into each nostril, rotated three to four times along the anterior membrane of each nostril, and then placed in a collection tube for transport to the lab. Nasopharyngeal, oropharyngeal and saliva collection methods are also available when required.
Our FDA EUA sample collection method requires medical professional supervision and can be self-administered. The anterior nares sample collection method has been found to be just as effective as the physician-administered nasopharyngeal swab, without the discomfort associated with deep nasal cavity penetration making it excellent for children, the elderly and all ages in between.
GenelQ's COVID-19 specimen collection kits contain all the necessary items required to successfully collect, store, protect and return the samples in a temperature-controlled manner to the lab for processing and reporting.
At GeneIQ, we pride ourselves on providing high-touch, comprehensive customer service for supporting local and national clients. You can trust our team to provide exemplary customer service for your organization. We are always available to help streamline processes and provide a personalized solution.
For clients that require a high density of testing, GeneIQ can provide a mobile courier service to pick-up specimens and transport to our laboratory for PCR testing.
Test results are provided to the designated client coordinator via a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)-compliant portal, as well as to the appropriate Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) office, state and local health administrative agencies, and to the tested participant in a HIPAA-compliant manner.
