Students Tested – Results Delivered!
Each week professional health care providers will come to your schools and test students and staff. They will use an anterior nares nasal swab test that is quick and accurate. This is NOT the test that tickles the brain, instead we just swab shallow in the nostril.
Here is a video of a recent testing event!
Reliable Results – Multiple Ways
Schools will choose between offering antigen testing or the gold-standard individual PCR testing. All three options use the same style nasal test, the difference is in how they are handled after the nasal swab is completed.
Antigen testing is commonly referred to as a rapid COVID-19 test. Antigen testing is an individual nasal swab testing for specific proteins/antigens from the virus. The test is highly sensitive, highly specific and delivers fast results.
Individual PCR Testing
Individual COVID-19 PCR testing is the gold standard test. With a simple anterior nares collection method, that simply tickles the nostril, MAKO can quickly and accurately determine if you have COVID-19. This test provides the highest sensitivity, accuracy, and specificity with fast results.
Results are available in 24 hours or less via text message or email. Real-time reporting is shared directly with schools to allow for quick follow ups on results.
That’s it! Easy COVID-19 testing = safe students and open schools. We hope you’ll tell others so they sign up too!
