MDxHealth COVID-19 PCR Active Infection Test
MDxHealth now offers a diagnostic swab test for COVID-19, using Quidel’s Lyra® Direct SARS-CoV-2 Assay, which is authorized for use with respiratory specimens collected from individuals who are suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider.
A positive result indicates that viral RNA from SARS-CoV-2 was detected, the patient is infected with the novel coronavirus, and presumed to be highly contagious.
Negative results do not preclude SARS-CoV-2 infection and should not be used as the sole basis for patient management decisions. Negative results must be combined with clinical observations, patient history, and epidemiological information.
Laboratories within the United States and its territories are required to report SARS-CoV-2 test results to the appropriate public health authorities. The MDxHealth COVID-19 PCR Active Infection Test may be ordered by licensed healthcare professionals and institutions for $250.00 ($119 cash price).
