MyLabs

Utah based, officially registered to do business in Oregon. Ensure you inform MyLabs to use “Predictive” as the associated lab used for processing the tests.

  • Type of Test: PCR molecular tests approved by SAG, and are saliva tests which are way more convenient & don’t require a tech (and better than getting a stick up the nose). Ensure you inform MyLabs to use “Predictive” as the associated lab used for processing the tests.
  • Turnaround Time: Usually test, FedEx, and then the results are in by 5pm the following day. The tests have been costing $110.
  • Price: The expense is having to priority overnight them to the actual lab in Utah.

WHERE TO GET ANTIBODY TESTING

The CDC and OR Health Departments say that antibody testing should not be used for hiring purposes. Antibodies can show up as late as seven days after having the virus and being contagious. That being said, Nurnberg Scientific in Oregon provides antibody testing kits.
