COVID-19 At-Home Nasal Test: Convenient and Accurate
Developed by a certified high-complexity clinical laboratory with extensive testing capabilities, the COVID-19 At-Home Nasal Test offers a streamlined solution for COVID-19 testing. Our testing procedures adhere to the FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for COVID-19 testing.
Simple Sample Collection: Our non-invasive self-collected shallow nasal swab sample makes testing hassle-free. Unlike the conventional nasopharyngeal (NP) swab, which involves inserting a swab deep into the nose and throat, our method is painless and significantly reduces the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
Efficient Testing Process: Once collected, your sample will be sent via free 2-day shipping directly to our laboratory for processing. Our laboratory employs a combination of viral RNA extraction, amplification, and PCR to accurately detect the presence of the COVID-19 virus. Our test’s precision has been validated and is FDA-authorized under the EUA.
Rapid Results and Privacy: Experience the convenience of receiving your results in as little as 24 hours after your specimen reaches our laboratory. Access your results securely on the myLAB Box HIPAA-compliant confidential customer portal. From the moment you place your order, expect to receive your results within 5-6 days, accounting for sample shipping time.
Physician Oversight: Per legal requirements, COVID-19 tests must be ordered by a licensed physician in your state. At myLAB Box, we collaborate with a physician-affiliate licensed across all 50 states. This ensures adherence to revised CDC testing recommendations. If you test positive, rest assured that a post-test counseling consultation will be offered within 24 hours.

- Individuals at risk in the community to prevent further transmission.
- Infected individuals can be isolated at home to minimize contagion.
- Contacts of infected individuals to detect potential cases and encourage isolation.
Reasons for Testing: Consider getting tested if you: • Exhibit symptoms of possible COVID-19 infection (see *** below) • Have been exposed to a lab-confirmed COVID-19 infected individual • Traveled to regions with high COVID-19 case numbers • Work in essential industries like grocery stores, pharmacies, nursing homes, transportation, delivery services, warehousing, distribution, and banking • Have chronic conditions or are undergoing immunosuppressive treatment
*In Case of Emergency: If you experience severe COVID-19 symptoms such as difficulty breathing, chest pain, confusion, or bluish lips, does not order a test. Instead, seek immediate medical attention. Contact your healthcare provider or go to the nearest emergency room.
Vital Role of Rapid Diagnosis: While vaccines are available for COVID-19, swift and accurate diagnosis remains essential in reducing transmission.
