New Coronavirus COVID-19 News You Must Know. Premier Medical Laboratory Services (PMLS), an industry leading diagnostic laboratory, announces their upcoming launch of Coronavirus (COVID-19) testing that will be available to hospitals and physician offices throughout the United States. Developed under CDC guidelines, PMLS’s COVID-19 test is undergoing FDA review for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to begin testing patient samples as soon as validation is completed within the coming days.
With this molecular diagnostic test, the presence of COVID-19 is detected through a nasal pharyngeal swab and results will be provided within 24 – 48 hours. Expedited detection of the virus will enable further efficiency in response time to employ the appropriate courses of action for containment of the virus.
According to recent statements by the FDA, rapid detection of COVID-19 cases in the United States requires wide availability of diagnostic testing to control the emergence of this rapidly spreading, severe illness.
“We want to help increase access to Coronavirus testing here in the US,” said Premier Medical Laboratory Services. “We take pride in our laboratory services being at the forefront of the most advanced technology and science available, providing cutting edge diagnostics to healthcare providers and their patients. Our team of scientists are working diligently to provide the utmost efficiency in COVID-19 testing so that the growing number of cases can be stabilized and the virus can be contained.”

Parainfluenza Virus 1
Parainfluenza Virus 2
