the way forward

Next Generation Sequencing is the only way forward to help control the pandemic, understand the complicated immune response system to the new mRNA vaccines and monitor the potential for vaccine escape or immune evasion as a result of new mutations and variants.

AVROK vs. OTHERS

01
Accurate Testing

Next Gen Sequencing (NGS) is measurably more accurate than PCR testing.

02
High Throughput

NGS allows us to process tens of thousands of samples per day in a small footprint.

03
Sensitivity

NGS testing is much more sensitive than PCR and is not susceptible to false negative results like PCR.

04
More Data

You need to know your enemy to win the war! NGS gives us the information we need to effectively fight this virus. 

FAQ

How fast will I get my results?

Results are expected to have a 24-36 hour turnaround time from the time the samples arrive at the laboratory.

Who performs the collection of the sample?

The oral collection is an observed self-collection test that comes with clear and easy instructions for the user.

Will the tests require pharyngeal swabs in the back of the nose?

No. We use an oral swab. It is non-invasive and not painful.

Where will the tests be processed?

All tests will be performed in our laboratory in Azusa, California

How many people can be tested daily by Avrok Laboratories?

We currently have the capacity to process around 50,000 samples per day.
