Pinnacle BioLabs COVID-19 PCR TEST

At a glance:  The Pinnacle BioLabs COVID-19 PCR test utilizes an FDA EUA approved saliva-based molecular test that is easily self-collected and shipped to our lab for PCR testing.  Results of the test confirm if the COVID-19 virus is detected in the saliva of the individual. Since no nasal swab is required, collection is minimally invasive and can be reliably self-administered without the assistance of a healthcare worker. Saliva is also more accurate for SARS-CoV-2 detection in COVID-19 patients than nasal swabs..
