Evexia Diagnostics is now offering COVID-19 Testing Kits to all licensed Evexia clients. Testing is performed by our lab partner, Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory (DSL). The DSL COVID-19 PCR test uses multiple viral targets as well as a spike protein which has been proven to improve accuracy and reduce the number of indeterminate and false negative test results.
Please be aware that quantities of the DSL Test Kits are limited and will be sold on a “first-come, first-served” basis. The DSL COVID-19 Test Kits are available for immediate purchase in quantities of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, or 50.
Testing Bundles include the specimen collection kit, the COVID-19 test, and expedited return shipping for clients and patients to send specimens to the lab.
Testing Bundles will NOT include the shipping charges to mail kits to individual clients or patients. These charges will be billed separately to the Evexia client account.
To order, contact our Client Success Team at (888)-852-2723.
Evexia Diagnostics does not accept any form of insurance nor do we have the ability to seek third-party reimbursement. We are offering this test as a convenience to our clients and their patients, who may not be able or may choose not to travel to a location where the test can be charged to a third-party. The fees charged by Evexia to our clients for the COVID-19 test are a reflection of our cost related to the acquisition and distribution of the COVID-19 test and supplies. Anyone who is symptomatic and/or who meets the CDC’s guidelines for testing has the option of receiving the test for free, but they would need to locate a testing facility (clinic, drive-thru or hospital) that is able to seek 3rd-party reimbursement and have the testing done there.

LabCorp PSCs (Patient Service Centers) in most locations will remain open. In addition, LabCorp will have 3 labs online performing COVID-19 testing by the end of today with the ability to handle 20,000 tests per day. This should reduce the current turnaround time, along with the Roche and Thermo Fisher technology being employed. There is currently a shortage of COVID-19 collection supplies, but this shortage is expected to be short term.

Media Statement: LabCorp Announces Ability to Perform 20,000 Tests Per Day, Doubles Its COVID-19 Testing Capacity in One Week
LabCorp announced that it will be able to perform more than 20,000 COVID-19 tests per day beginning Friday, March 20, ahead of its original schedule. This represents a significant increase in capacity since the company released its COVID-19 test two weeks ago. The company is working continuously to increase capacity and support the needs of healthcare workers, patients, government, clients and other organizations, and expects capacity to continue to increase.
The company is intently focused on making COVID-19 laboratory testing available to patients who are symptomatic and should be tested. LabCorp has moved quickly to significantly increase its testing capacity by adding staff, equipment and more high-throughput testing now underway as a result of approved emergency use authorization (EUAs). LabCorp is now performing COVID-19 testing at its labs in Phoenix, Ariz., Burlington, N.C., and Raritan, N.J.
As a reminder, LabCorp does not collect specimens for the test. Patients for whom testing has been ordered should not be sent to LabCorp location to have a specimen collected. Instead, an appropriate specimen must be collected at the healthcare facility where the patient was seen and the test was ordered. The specimen should be sent to the companies using standard procedures. Test results will be available in 3-4 days from the pickup of the specimen to release of the test result.
If you believe you have been exposed to Coronavirus (COVID-19), please do not enter a patient service center. Immediately contact your physician or healthcare provider. Testing must be collected by a physician or an authorized healthcare provider. LabCorp employees are not able to collect the specimens in LabCorp patient service centers.
To ensure the health of our patients, employees and the broader community, please follow these guidelines.
- We request the first business hour each day is set aside to serve people who are 65 or older and those with serious underlying medical conditions.
- We’ve launched the “Wait Where You’re Comfortable” Program. Once checked in, you can wait in your vehicle or other nearby location. If you make an appointment online and provide your cell phone number, check in from your mobile device and we will text you when we’re ready to see you.

LabCorp is proud of the work that we, along with our industry partners, are doing to quickly mobilize the United States to get back on its feet by bringing access to nationwide testing for COVID-19. We continue to work closely with federal and state authorities and health officials, as well as other key constituencies to make testing available for patients who should be tested and increase test capacity in response to this public health crisis.
LabCorp does not collect specimens for COVID-19 testing at our locations, and we are asking individuals who are or may be positive for COVID-19 not to visit our locations to help minimize possible transmission. LabCorp’s patient service centers and other locations follow strict personal and environmental hygiene protocols, which have been further strengthened and reinforced with all employees since the early days of the COVID-19 outbreak. But all available evidence is that people can be contagious before exhibiting any symptoms, and without knowing that they have been exposed or may be infected.
As we learn of employees who may have been exposed, we are moving quickly to make sure they are following all recommendations and protocols, including self-quarantine, and receive appropriate care and support. We are also working in coordination with public health authorities to respond when we are informed about visitors to our locations who may have been infected and could have exposed others. If we learn of a potential exposure, the location will be closed and thoroughly cleaned so that we can bring it back online to serve patients and their healthcare needs.
The health and safety of our employees, the public, patients and healthcare service providers is of the utmost importance. We are committed to working with the relevant governmental and healthcare authorities in response to COVID-19 and ensuring that we are communicating key developments as they occur.
LabCorp and our dedicated employees are intensely focused on performing testing for COVID-19 and increasing capacity to make testing available for patients who should be tested. We are deeply proud of everything our colleagues have done to respond to this unprecedented crisis, and all that they will continue to do.
