Diagnostic COVID-19 Test Information
The RT-PCR COVID-19 Test has been released under FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 (the virus responsible for COVID-19 infection), and can be used in applications that require molecular/ RT-PCR testing. Please consult your state health department for additional information regarding specific uses (such as pre and post travel requirements). This test is an RT-PCR, molecular and NAAT test which satisfies most travel requirements; however, it is the purchaser’s responsibility to verify the test will be accepted for travel prior to purchase. Please note that most travel restrictions require that a traveler’s test specimen IS COLLECTED within 72 hours prior to arrival at a destination.
