As a medical laboratory, we know that both doctors and patients rely on fast, accurate results. Never before has this been more critical than it is right now, when many of us are putting decisions related to work, travel, and family on hold until a COVID-19 test result is confirmed. And we are still seeing long wait times for test results across the country.

That's why we're offering our COVID-19 test directly to patients in the greater Seattle area at our laboratory located in Shoreline, WA. 

Whether you are concerned you may have an active COVID-19 infection, have had recent exposure to an infected individual, or need to be tested for work, visitation, or travel purposes, our curbside testing service will get you the results you need in 36 hours or less.
