Is this test accepted for traveling?

Our tests are accepted for MOST travel locations but there may be exceptions for certain destinations. We are performing rt-PCR (aka PCR) molecular testing which is the gold standard for testing. Please note that it is your responsibility to check the travel testing guidelines for your destination. Please call with any questions (925) 526-0821.

Can I purchase more than one Sample Kit for my household?

You can order multiple test kits, however, each individual being tested MUST complete the CDC-recommended eligibility screening and each individual must have their own registration for each test kit. All test kits must be ordered separatley.

Should I get tested even if I don't feel sick?

Some people can have COVID-19 and not have any symptoms. You can protect your family and friends by getting tested. Other people, who may work in high risk jobs such as first responders, people who work with the elderly, health care workers or people who have contact with the general public, may want to get tested on a regular basis to ensure that they do not have COVID-19

Do I have to have symptoms to qualify for testing?

You can get tested, regardless if you have symptoms. If you are in the high risk group, believe that you have been exposed or just want to have peace of mind, you qualify for testing.

What do I do if I test positive?

If you test positive, please follow the CDC guidelines: stay home, isolate, contact your healthcare provider by phone. More information can be found Here.

What if I drop the swab/sample kit and its gets dirty or wet?

Do not use a swab or test kit that has been damaged, dropped, dirty, or contaminated. Cleanly collected samples will ensure accurate test results. Contact McCampbell for a replacement test kit. Shipping charges may apply.

What if I spill the liquid inside of the collection tube?

The liquid inside the collection tube is sterile media needed to appropriately preserve and test your sample. If you spill or accidentally dump it, please call (925)526-0821 for a replacement kit. Shipping charges may apply.

Does the nasal swab hurt?

Mild discomfort is likely during collection. Sample both nostrils by inserting swab 3/4 inch & rotate inward 5 seconds each. Swab must only make contact with nostril and collection tube.

Are there preparation steps before taking my sample?

Samples should be collected as cleanly as possible. The person collecting the sample should thoroughly wash their hands, wear gloves, and collect the sample in a clean environment.

How accurate is RT-PCR testing?

The CDC test currently in use, the same test we use, has been found to be very accurate. You can find out more about it here: HCP Fact Sheet.pdf

Can I use these results to file an EDD claim such as disability or paid family leave?

While this is a doctor prescribed test, this analysis may not replace or override previous or future examination/diagnostic testing required to be performed by a healthcare provider.

Do you accept insurance?

While our test is private and costs are paid by you out of pocket, your insurance may reimburse you for the testing. Please check with your insurance to see if reimbursement is possible.

Can I get a refund if I have to cancel the test before I Self-Sample?
