Through our partnership with TouchCare, TouchCare Shield is offering an unsupervised test in partnership with P23 Labs, LLC, a high-complexity molecular diagnostics, CLIA certified laboratory. It’s Easy COVID-19 Testing…you can test quickly, safely, and securely from the comfort of your own home.
What is the TouchCare Shield Difference?
One, we are utilizing a CLIA Certified Lab. TouchCare Shield works exclusively with a single CLIA-certified (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) lab group that specializes in coronavirus testing. Laboratories or sites that perform these tests need to have a CLIA certificate and meet high standards to obtain both state and federal certifications, as well as submit themselves to regular inspection.
Two, Our test is FDA authorized, and has been authorized for emergency use (EUA) by an extremely limited number of authorized laboratories.
This test is only authorized for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of emergency use of in vitro diagnostics for detection and/or diagnosis of COVID-19 under 564(b)(1) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. §360bbb-3(b)(1), unless the authorization is terminated or revoked sooner.
Lastly, Our test is physican approved. TouchCare Shield tests are ordered and approved by an independent, board-certified physician who is licensed within the appropriate state.
TouchCare Shield does not provide treatment for COVID-19. When you receive your test results, we will provide you with the most recent CDC guidelines for what to do if you have symptoms and recommended to get in touch with a local healthcare provider for care.
It took me about 5 min to do the whole process – from spitting in the tube to filling out the online form.
