San Diego, CA (June 26, 2020) – To help support local communities and their residents’ safe return to work and school, Phamatech Laboratory and Diagnostics, Inc. (Phamatech), a CLIA licensed laboratory and a manufacturer and global provider of diagnostic products, announces the launch of its COVID-19 testing service in San Diego.
Starting in mid-July, Phamatech will provide sample collection and lab testing for both COVID-19 viral antigen (by PCR) and antibody tests at a yet to be disclosed location each weekend. PCR tests, which determine if someone is currently infected with the coronavirus, will be performed by a Phamatech healthcare worker using a nasal swab sample that will be analyzed in a lab. The antibody tests, which determine if someone has previously had the coronavirus, will be performed with an IV blood draw.
Testing will be available each weekend, and an appointment can be scheduled online. Enrollees will be required to show identification and fill out a registration form upon arrival at the soon to be announced testing site. Sample collection procedures take about 5 – 10 minutes and test results will be shared via email within 24 to 48 hours.
“Phamatech deeply cares for the wellbeing of our neighbors in local communities as they explore safe options to assess their health conditions and make an informed decision about their return to work or school,” said Tuan Pham, President of Phamatech. “We are working closely with officials from San Diego County’s Health & Human Services Agency to support the growing demand for local testing and their efforts to help businesses and organizations take adequate measures for safe reopening plans.”
To meet the anticipated demand for PCR and antibody testing, Phamatech will expand its laboratory capabilities to analyze test results at its state-of-the-art laboratory in San Diego. Phamatech will perform this valuable community service using FDA approved EUA test kits manufactured in the United States.
More information about the appointment schedule, testing dates, and location will be posted on Phamatech’s website and social media channels. Interested individuals can also sign up here to receive all the latest updates via email as they become available.
Phamatech has been operating a high complexity CLIA laboratory since 2008 and has been manufacturing diagnostic products for over 25 years and has over 100 FDA approved tests focusing on Fertility, Toxicology, Infection, and Disease. Phamatech was started with a mission and values of quality, assurance, accountability, dependability, and reliability.
