High-throughput testing for senior care

Older adults living in congregate settings, such as nursing homes, are at higher risk for contracting and spreading infectious diseases.¹

Our offerings

In addition to PRL's SARS-CoV-2 test, our NEW Concise Respiratory and STI Panels enhance care for long-term care facilities.

Rapid response for isolation, quarantine and treatment decisions.

Quick rule-in or rule-out of infections with similar cold/flu-like symptoms.

STI Panels

Reduce Severe Illness from COVID-19

According to the CDC, older adults are more likely to get very sick from COVID-19. Even after recovery, 1 in 4 people over 65 show symptoms of long COVID.²

Remove Stigma

With STIs more than doubled in the past 10 years among U.S. adults age 65 and over,³ it is important to offer education and access to testing to remove misconceptions and stigma about STIs.

Inform Optimal Treatment

Accurate identification of infections or co-infections showing similar signs and symptoms is essential in decision making when treating vulnerable populations.

Regular Staff Testing

Test your staff regularly and easily to monitor COVID/respiratory cases within your facility, allowing you to take the appropriate action to mitigate transmission and protect your elderly residents.
