Our website includes quick and simple training for the teachers and administrators who will run your district’s program.
We send your schools everything they need—for as little as $6 per student!
Our self-swab test takes just minutes to perform and is so easy a kindergartener can do it. Use the shipping materials we provide to send the swabs to our labs.
We return results directly to schools. If a result is negative, it’s unlikely anyone is infected and students continue learning uninterrupted. If the result is positive, someone in the classroom is most likely sick; the school can then follow up to stop an outbreak—for just the cost of one test.

Concentric by Ginkgo is a COVID-19 testing service that doesn’t just provide test kits—we provide a complete, end-to-end testing service.
We use easy, self-collected lower nasal swabs. The sample is taken just a half-inch inside the nostril, which makes testing much more comfortable. To quote a sixth grader in one of our pilots, “the test was not bad at all. It just tickles.”
Molecular tests are highly accurate at detecting the virus that causes COVID-19. In validation studies, our test was able to correctly identify 96% of positive tests detected by the “gold standard” PCR test using a deep nasopharyngeal swab and 100% of negatives (meaning that there were no false positives).
For classroom pooling, we use a testing method that detects the genetic code of the virus. For individual testing, we offer both standard PCR and rapid tests.
