Local Laboratory Continues to Offer Large Scale, On-site COVID-19 Services via Workplace Safety Initiative Amidst Continued Spread of Omicron Variant
DALLAS, Feb. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- GeneIQ, a molecular diagnostics company based in Dallas, is supporting local businesses that strive to provide safe workplace environments for employees via COVID-19 testing and vaccination services. The Workplace Safety initiative will expand in February and launch in over twenty new states that have low vaccination rates and/or high positivity rates to target small to mid-sized businesses. The objective is to assist companies nationwide in maintaining safe workplace environments as they navigate Omicron and future waves of additional variants. GeneIQ will engage these companies to offer a convenient and customized program for testing and reporting that meets their specific needs.
Through their on-site COVID-19 testing services, GeneIQ provides both 10-minute rapid antigen tests along with PCR tests with a 24 to 48-hour turnaround time from the time of receipt. Both tests are non-invasive and can be self-administered by the patient via nasal or saliva methodologies. GeneIQ's PCR-based assay has been confirmed to detect the Omicron variant and is highly accurate with a positive predictive value (PPV) of 100% and a negative predictive value (NPV) of 98.5%.
