Individuals who may have been exposed to COVID-19 through:
Individuals who are experiencing mild symptoms including:
Discovery Genomics is a CLIA-certified lab. This means we meet high standards to obtain both state and federal certifications and submit ourselves to regular inspections. With new real-time PCR and antibody testing equipment, we have converted our innovative genomics lab to a COVID-19 testing and research facility.
Our lab has the capacity to run 15,000 tests a day. As long as you do not ship out sample on a Friday or over the weekend, our lab can process the results in under 24 hours.
We use well-established and effective self-collection collection methods that are easy-to-do by yourself. We only offer test kits that meet rigorous standards for reliability and validity for self-collection.
If you believe you may have COVID-19 or test positive for COVID-19 and have mild symptoms, the following steps can help prevent the disease from spreading to others:
Treatment currently focuses on managing symptoms and protecting your family and community through self-quarantine. Not all patients with COVID-19 will require medical attention, and most people recover within 2 weeks without any specific treatment. For severe cases, hospitalization may be required.
Your healthcare provider can help you determine whether monitoring your condition from home or a hospital is most appropriate for you. This decision will be made on a case-by-case basis and will likely be based on several factors including your medical history and current symptoms.
If you and your healthcare provider determine that you will monitor your condition from home, ask if they recommend over-the-counter medications, and be sure to rest, hydrate, and eat a balanced diet as best you can.
At this time, there is no vaccine or antiviral drugs approved by the FDA to prevent or treat patients with COVID-19
Knowing whether you have COVID-19 can help you prevent spread of the virus by taking important measures like self-quarantine. As many public health organizations have pointed out, COVID-19 shares many symptoms with the flu, the common cold, even allergies, so it's important to know.
At this time we are only able to offer testing for those who qualify to be tested.
While there is no age restriction for who can be tested, individuals who are under 18 years cannot create independent accounts. In this case, parents or guardians will be required to create an account and add the minor as a member of the account.
Yes. We have a concierge service that works with individuals who desire to purchase the tests. Please contact us on 877-380-1776.
The test is available to be taken from all states.
The DxCovid Test Kit is a COVID-19 rt-PCR test that looks for the presence or absence of unique genomic markers of the SARS-CoV-2 virus using a nasal swab for sample collection.
You do not need to do anything to prepare for self-collection.
Discovery Genomics provides detailed instructions in our kit and online for safe collection and transport of samples. We provide the appropriate shipping materials to safely ship samples to our lab following the recommendations provided by the United Nations Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods (UN).
We recommend that our customers take precautionary measures when collecting their sample by washing their hands thoroughly, and disinfecting surfaces where they will be completing their test.
Your test results will confirm whether or not you are infected with SARS-CoV-2. If your results are positive, it is important to limit your exposure to other people and continue to monitor your symptoms. If your results are negative, the virus was not present in the sample you provided.
However, it is important to note that the virus may not be detected by the test even if you are infected SARS-CoV-2. This can happen if:
If you have reason to believe you have been exposed, it is important to follow up with a healthcare provider for further evaluation or to get re-tested.
Your results will be reported to state public health authorities to help inform the crucial ongoing public health response.
The DxCOVID Test Kit will come with everything you need to collect a sample (generally in five minutes or less) and safely ship your sample to our CLIA-certified laboratory.
You will use the provided materials to collect a nasal swab sample. The swab tip does not need to be inserted far - only about an inch into your nostril.
In order to get your sample to our labs as quickly as possible, we provide a prepaid overnight mailer. Check your return label to determine if your package will be shipped via FedEx.
YOUR SAMPLE WILL BE REJECTED IF YOU:
In certain cases, if you are not able to provide an adequate sample, it is possible that our lab will not be able to determine your test results. A member from our telehealth partner will reach out to help you determine next steps and likely recommend that you self-quarantine to avoid community spread if you are experiencing symptoms.
We try to make sample collection as simple and straightforward as possible through printed instructions in your kit, as well as digital and video instructions at dxcovid.com/help. Our customer care staff is available if you have any questions.
If you spill ALL the liquid from the collection tube, the test will no longer be valid. Wipe the surface on which the liquid has spilled with a tissue or cloth and throw the test away.
If the tube still contains part of the liquid, the test may still be valid.
If you touch the tip of the swab to any surface, there is a possibility that the results you get may not be accurate. For this reason, we recommend that you throw away the test and contact us for next steps.
The DxCOVID test kits are a product of Discovery Genomics. Your samples are tested in a CAP-registered and CLIA-certified lab, that meet the highest standards of accuracy and timeliness of test results.
Discovery Genomics improves health care through technology-enabled molecular science and data analysis. We focus on Pharmacogenomics (PGx), Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) and Cancer Tissue genomic research to align therapies.
