The World’s Leading Health Care Diagnostics Company
How LabCorp is Serving Communities Nationwide
LabCorp is proud of the work that we, along with our industry partners, are doing to quickly mobilize the United States to get back on its feet by bringing access to nationwide testing for COVID-19.
We continue to work closely with federal and state authorities, health officials and other key constituencies to make testing available to patients who meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) criteria for who should be tested, and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) guidance for prioritization of testing, while we work to increase test capacity in response to this public health crisis.
This site provides essential information for patients, healthcare providers and managed care companies.
Please note patients who have #COVID19 symptoms should consult their physician or other healthcare provider. The specimen must be collected by a healthcare provider and then sent to LabCorp using standard procedures. LabCorp patient service centers are not collecting specimens for #COVID19. Our patient service centers are open for non-COVID-19 testing needs.
With LabCorp, you’re getting more than results — you’re gaining insights. This video shares how LabCorp is working to improve health and improve lives every day.
Announcing At-home Collection Kits for COVID-19 Testing
With LabCorp’s new self-collection kit, healthcare workers and first responders who have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 can collect a test sample without leaving home. This helps reduce the risk of transmitting the virus to others, and reduces the demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) as the tests do not require a clinician to perform the test collection. LabCorp intends to make COVID-19 self-collection kits available to consumers in the coming weeks. LEARN MORE
How It Works
We are pleased to announce that we’ll be expanding serological testing for #COVID19 to more hospitals and healthcare organizations. These tests determine the presence of antibodies to the virus.
“We’re delighted… to release the very first emergency use authorization of an at-home self-collection kit,” LabCorp Diagnostics Pres. Dr. Brian Caveney says. “A person can essentially take the swab themselves… and very quickly ship it back to us.”
