Learn a Little More About Us
NJ Covid Laboratory was created with the targeted focus of impacting, improving, and innovating the lives of all people by empowering physicians with the information and results they need through pharmacogenomics. NJ Covid Laboratory identified a gap in healthcare services between the lab and pharmacy: Every body is different – why shouldn’t medications be the same way? Knowing your genetic makeup will help identify drugs that your body can actually breakdown and metabolize. Otherwise, it can be a guessing game – picking a medication and hoping your body responds effectively to it. Personalized medicine takes the guesswork out of medication effectiveness. We were determined to make genetic results more actionable, so we added the pharmacist to the equation to provide therapeutic recommendations based on the individual’s genetic makeup.
With the combination of pharmacology and genomics (the study of genes and their functions), NJ Covid Laboratory joined the pharmacogenomics industry. We developed an effective test focused on the individual and their genetic makeup, which can help identify the most appropriate medication and dose, tailored specifically to your genetic makeup. In other words, because the medication is tailored specifically in a way the patient will respond best too, it will be more effective.
NJ Covid Laboratory is a health management service company that specializes in bringing the benefits of genetic testing to the patient, via a network of our expert healthcare providers with extensive knowledge and experience in personalized medicine and pharmacogenomics. We are happy to work with all healthcare providers.
NJ Covid is certified according to the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment (CLIA) for high complexity laboratory testing in all fields of service. Achieving the CAP accreditation combined with the CLIA certification demonstrates NJ Covid’s unwavering commitment to patient care.
Quick results have never been more important than in the face of COVID-19. That is why, starting on March 19, 2020, NJ Covid Laboratory began testing for COVID-19. But we knew time was of the essence, and so was accuracy. NJ Covid Laboratory introduced a 99% accurate COVID-19 Nasopharyngeal test to fight back against the pandemic. Considered the gold standard due to its accuracy, NJ Covid’s COVID-19 Nasopharyngeal test has the ability to detect infection in its earliest stages, and produce a quick turnaround time. Once our lab receives the simple nose swab sample, you can expect results within less than 72 hours. We also have a saliva test with greater than 98% accuracy, with the same less-than 72 hour turnaround time for results. We’re working around the clock to get physicians from all over the country the results they need for their patients. We’re dedicated to doing our part in reducing the spread of COVID-19 and saving as many lives as possible.
