Collection Sites, LLC has launched COVID-19 testing services in conjunction with Alcala Testing and Analysis Services, a CLIA registered high complexity laboratory based in San Diego, California. Alcala is a recognized expert leader in rapid COVID-19 laboratory testing.
“Now is the time to broaden the testing environment so everyone has access to accurate and affordable testing sites so they can live, lead and return to work with confidence,” says Mr. Tim Shelburn, CEO of Collection Sites, LLC. “We are pleased to collaborate with our laboratory partner, Alcala, to establish pop-up testing centers across America. We endeavour to establish standards and protocols so all people can test before they go to work, school or socialize” says Mr. Shelburn.
These new testing centers will offer convenient access to antibody and antigen testing with insurance coverage options. Appointments and payments will be handled through an online portal www.testbeforeyougo.com to limit contact points at the centers. “The centres will offer COVID-19 FDA Emergency Use Authorization Antigen and Antibody tests. We are focused on convenient, multi-city locations that are easy to access and testing modalities that are quick and unobtrusive” says Mr. Doug Sommerville, CEO of QuestCap who is overseeing the development of the strategy.
The first phase of testing is the establishment of 11 pop-up labs, also known as ‘draw centres’, that can together administer 5,500 tests per day, with a capacity to analyze 154,000 tests a month. The first site opened for business in Las Vegas on August 8, 2020. Additional locations are expected to open throughout Las Vegas, as well as Arizona, Texas and Indiana within the next couple of weeks. The draw centres will be located in malls, retail centers, fitness facilities, pharmacies, stadiums, on-site in small businesses, real estate offices, law firms and schools. The second phase, expected to launch in fall 2020, will include mobile pop-up labs to provide access to those without transportation or unable to travel.
The antibody and antigen tests take 8-10 minutes to administer and return same-day certified lab results. The results can be communicated via text or email, and can be accompanied with a certificate of good health via a proprietary HIPPA-compliant Alcala iPhone and Android applications.
The network of pop-up labs will be utilizing proprietary Glenco standards and protocols for testing individuals developed by Dr. Glenn Copeland, of Glenco Medical, a company which QuestCap owns a 30% interest. Dr. Copeland also serves, as Director, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Glenco Medical. The Standard comprises medical screening protocols for individual health safety. The screenings will incorporate temperature and symptom checks in addition to serology testing for COVID19 antibodies.
“We appreciate the bold and courageous direction the team is taking in Las Vegas,” says Dr. Copeland. “We are determined and committed to ensuring the testing protocols for the labs are available to companies, businesses and centres of industry to restore reality for Las Vegas responsibly,” continues Dr. Copeland.
