Testing an entire class takes just minutes with pooled testing, so students and teachers can get back to learning. If a student can pick their nose, they can take this test.
Pooled COVID-19 testing can help keep kids in school
Why your kids’ school could stay open this winter if we ramped up COVID-19 testing
What is pooled testing for COVID-19 and how can it help fight the virus
Pooled COVID-19 testing could help reopen schools safely
Here’s what pooled testing is and how it can be used for the coronavirus
Safer reopening will require millions more Covid-19 tests per day. One solution: ‘pool testing’
We’ll send you everything you need. Test kits, training videos, onboarding materials: we’ve got it all covered.
Our easy, self-swab test is so simple that a kindergartener can do it. Testing an entire class takes just minutes.
At the end of the day, send test kits back to our lab. We provide the shipping materials.
We’ll return results directly to your school. 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; you can then follow up to stop an outbreak—for just the cost of one test.

We designed our test to have a minimal impact on in-person learning. Testing an entire class for the first time typically takes 10-15 minutes and speeds up from there.
Teachers oversee classrooms on test days. They observe (from a safe distance) as students perform their own swabs, direct students to place their swabs in a tube, then cap the tube and sterilize it using an alcohol swab.
We’re here for you! Our team helps you with everything you need. The first thing we do with new customers is provide them with detailed instructions on how to set up and run a testing program. To learn more, register for an information session.
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.
