Gold-standard PCR testing, sequencing, & panels for hospitals
As NYC's official testing partner, PRL has tested over 3 million COVID-19 samples to date, provided > 75% of sequences to identify all emergent Eta variants, and was the first to detect Alpha variants in NY State.
Sub-contract your COVID-19 testing including free surveillance and variant testing services at volume at 3x more cost-effective pricing. Respiratory panels and pooling available for 50% less cost than national average.
PRL delivers 50,000 PCR tests/day with 6-12 hour turnaround time. Respiratory panels have 24 hour turnaround time. Sequencing results delivered in 3-7 days.
Gold standard PCR testing with 5 times greater sensitivity than industry benchmarks. Respiratory panels have 98% sensitivity, 1% higher than market leader and 3% higher than industry average.
Improved Patient Outcomes
Bundled COVID-19 PCR testing, surveillance and variant tracking, sequencing, and respiratory panels ensure testing isn't the reason for surgery delays.
Integrated sequencing enables surveillance and variant testing & detection. Fast and affordable testing decreases the risk of spread.
Respiratory panels are inclusive of COVID-19 save time and cut costs, increasing access to testing in new and underserved communities.
Lower Cost Burden
Less expensive testing helps make every patient dollar count, even with improved quality and turnaround time.
“The Pandemic Response Lab gives us a guarantee that tens of thousands of tests can be done every day.”
Improved Financial Health
Our COVID-19 PCR tests, surveillance and variant tracking, sequencing, and respiratory panels are 3x as cost-effective as market leaders, allowing for a substantially improved financial result on existing testing centers.
Offer your services to new communities to broaden reach, market penetration, and impact without adding overhead.
Exponentially increase testing capacity without adding to payroll, training new staff, buy new equipment, or lease and certify a new facility.
Test staff regularly and easily with one panel.

PRL is legally certified to run overflow COVID-19 testing under P4 Clinical’s CLIA certification.
PRL can integrate with multiple LIMS systems. Compatibility depends on multiple factors including tube size, storage requirements, solution, reagent kits, and sample state.
PRL requires a minimum of 300 tests per day.
PRL can support saliva swabs with < 1mL of sample. For samples of > 3mL we only accept nasopharyngeal swab. PRL is also integrated, including both variant sequencing testing and pooling — unlike any other industrial diagnostic facility.
PRL provides testing kits — sample tubes, swabs, and bags — but you can use your own. PRL can provide up to 500,000 kits within two weeks to get started. PRL can also arrange pickups for you at $30 per pickup.
PRL utilizes a proprietary scientific assay that can detect the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in as little as 200 mL of sample while retaining gold standard industry accuracy.
Turnaround time (TAT) for 99% of tests between 6-24 hours.
Turnaround time (TAT) for sequencing between 3-7 days.
Turnaround time (TAT) for pooling results tests between 6-24 hours.

Small panel (RP1) is part number 21000016. Large panel (RP2) is 21000001.
Small panels cost $25 and large panels cost $40, including the kit.
Sample collection is nasal or via a nasopharyngeal swab in transport media. The total hands-on time is approximately 2 minutes. All kit components can be stored at room temperature (15-25 ̊C).
PRL has labs in New York City and Washington D.C. and will soon be opening labs in Los Angeles and Seattle. PRL is exploring opening additional labs across the country.
