COVID-19: Diagnostic Testing

Dascena Laboratory: COVID-19 Diagnostic Testing

To help alleviate the strain on overwhelmed labs and get testing capacity where it needs to be, Dascena has opened a COVID-19 testing lab in Houston, Texas. Dascena’s lab, which is funded and accelerated by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADx) initiative, uses state of the art technology and a CLIA validated process to provide high throughput COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) diagnostic testing. The lab is currently focused on analyzing samples obtained from a nasopharyngeal swab and is accepting samples from across the United States, offering competitive pricing and a turn-around time of 24 hours upon sample receipt.  

Dascena's laboratory has already partnered with, and is performing testing for a variety of groups across the United States, including nursing home and assisted living communities, hospitals and emergency rooms, as well as other regional testing facilities.
