What tests do you currently offer?
We currently offer two tests for SARS-CoV-2 detection:
- Diagnostic test that is collected from a nasal swab. This test helps to identify those who have an active COVID-19 viral infection.
- Antibody test that is collected from a blood sample. This test helps to identify those who may have previously been exposed or infected.
What makes this testing different from other tests out there?
Biodesix testing is authorized for emergency use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to identify either an active COVID-19 viral infection or the antibodies indicating previous infection. These tests are only performed in qualified laboratories and have low rates of false positive and false negative results to ensure high quality and reproducibility.
How much does this testing cost?
The current price for each test is $100, but we are able to offer the tests to you, our friends and family, at $75 per test, or $125 if you would like to receive both the diagnostic test and the antibody test at the same time. Payment will be collected on-site via credit card.
How will I receive my results?
You will receive a secure email with your results. Please note it is best to open these results on a desktop computer due to the encryption. If you have any questions surrounding your results, please contact Biodesix_CovidTesting@Biodesix.com.
What if I have a positive test result?
A positive test result from the diagnostic test (swab sample) means that it is very likely that you have a COVID-19 infection. Therefore, it is also likely that you may be placed in isolation to avoid spreading the virus to others. Please refer to the FDA Fact Sheet for more information.
A positive test result from the antibody test (blood sample) means that it is likely that you have or previously had COVID-19 and that you have developed an antibody response to the virus. Please refer to the FDA Fact Sheet for more information.
What if I have a negative test result?
A negative test result from the diagnostic test (swab sample) means that the virus that causes COVID-19 was not found in your sample. Please refer to the FDA Fact Sheet for more information.
A negative test result from the antibody test (blood sample) means that the antibodies to the virus that causes COVID-19 were not found in your sample. Please refer to the FDA Fact Sheet for more information.
