November 2020 Test Bulletin

November 6, 2020

We're updating our COVID-19 testing services. Now, we offer COVID-19 IgM antibody testing, indicating exposure to the virus. However, early specimen collection may yield false negatives, and IgM status shouldn't determine infectiousness. Additionally, we're soon introducing an RT-PCR mini-respiratory panel detecting COVID-19, Influenza A/B, and RSV, aiding rapid differentiation due to their similar symptoms. See page 2 for details on specimen requirements and stability guidelines. Thank you.
