LX Medical has COVID-19 screening capability.
LX Medical is working with Quest Diagnostics to continue to provide blood-based antibody testing for COVID-19.
Important to note: Quest Diagnostics’ test ONLY looks for the long term COVID-19 antibody. This generally takes at least 2-weeks for your body to develop after exposure. So, everyone we are testing needs to either be greater than 2 weeks from the start of the concerning illness, or be looking to see if they may have been exposed and recovered without symptoms.
-Some important facts about our rapid, point-of-care test:
- Quest Diagnostics utilizes laboratory technology to identify the presence of the IgG COVID-19 antibody from a blood sample.
Given that it’s not a point of care test, it has better accuracy and helps to eliminate human and test strip errors.
- Quest Diagnostics utilizes the test from Abbott and Euroimmun, both are on the FDA EUA approval list. This does not mean the tests have been FORMALLY and fully approved by the FDA.
- Quest Diagnostics helps our LX Medical team to be able to handle more volume, and offer more consistent resources than we could by ourselves.
- We are excited about this partnership as it will allow us to stay at the forefront of COVID-19 testing solutions as Quest continues to develop/utilize more types of tests. It also gives community members the option to go to a clinic or stay at home for blood sample collection.
