Athlete Blood Test is partnering with Access Medical Labs to help fight the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic by expanding test distribution. Our Covid-19 Nucleic Acid Amplification (NAA) test detects the presence of the underlying virus that causes Covid-19. We believe a key component to fighting this pandemic is expanded access to kits when quantities allow it. With test kits now in stock and Access Medical Lab’s ability to test 1000s of kits per day, this is the change needed to win the fight against Covid-19. While this is not Athlete Blood Test’s core business, we want to aid in kit distribution and are therefore providing the test kits at a price that represents our cost.
This kit is shipped directly to you with detailed instructions. You can self-swab or bring it to a healthcare professional. You will then ship the sample, with an included overnight pre-paid shipping label to our partner lab.
4/2/20 update: Kits are in stock and ready to ship. Kits ship via FedEx Overnight and ship the same day if ordered by 1pm mountain time.
Inventory levels are updated in real-time, so the number in-stock above is accurate. Demand for these is high, and we are working hard to obtain more kits for distribution by 4/8/20.
From Access Medical Labs: “The molecular test actually detects the presence of viral DNA, which is a much more definitive indicator that individuals currently have an active infection (at the time the swab was taken) which is exactly what the nation is trying to identify at this time.”
Clinical Specificity: 90-98%
Source: Nasal Swab (may be conveniently self-collected)
COVID-19 self collection kits are assembled inside of Access Medical Lab’s state of the art specialty laboratory. They are then shipped to Athlete Blood Test’s distribution center, which allows us to fulfill orders quickly, safely, and efficiently. They are then shipped for delivery directly to your front door upon your order.
All kits include: instructions, sterile swab, streile UTM, gloves, requisition form, specimen bag, and UPS shipping bag with Next Day Air label (pre-paid).
How to Collect Specimen:
1. Tilt your head back 70 degrees.
2. While gently rotating the swab, insert swab less than one inch into nostril (until resistance is met at turbinates).
3. Rotate the swab several times against nasal wall and repeat in other nostril using the same swab. Place the swab in the sterile tube when complete.
4. Place your kit into the labeled UPS bag and drop it off to the nearest UPS store or drop box location.
