Microbiology Dx is open and performing MARCoNS testing. We will continue to ship kits to offices and drop ship kits directly to patients when requested.
The swabs in the kits we use at Microbiology Dx contain Amies gel media which is not compatible with Covid 19 or any other viral testing. Viral testing requires a different media such as UTM.
We do bacterial and fungal cultures but no viral testing at Microbiology Dx so we will not be doing any Coronavirus testing and cannot provide Covid 19 testing kits.
You can contact CDC or your local department of health to get information on obtaining Covid 19 kits.
