The myLAB Box COVID-19 Shallow Nasal PCR Test offers a convenient and safe way for people to test for COVID-19 infection. The test uses a self-collected shallow nasal sample. The test uses a non-invasive self-collected shallow nasal swab sample. Self-collection of shallow nasal swab is painless and reduces the risk of spreading COVID-19, compared to collecting deep nasal swabs in a doctor’s office or hospital.

The test kit was developed by a CLIA-certified high complexity clinical laboratory capable of large volume testing. The lab uses gold standard PCR to detect the COVID-19 virus, if present. The accuracy of this test has been validated and is authorized by the FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).
