Why you need to test for COVID-19 at home with empowerDX
Do you want COVID-19 testing that is so convenient it can be done in your home, at any time, without any need for supervision?
With an at-home nasal PCR test from empowerDX, there’s a better way to get results without sacrificing your time and test accuracy. Here are six reasons you should get tested for COVID-19 right in your living room. (Or your bathroom. Or your bedroom. Wherever works best for you).
1. A painless experience
Say goodbye to a deep swab, and say hello to a painless nasal swab you can collect yourself. Our FDA emergency use authorized (EUA) RT-PCR test (that’s reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction test for our science friends out there) uses a shallow nasal swab to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19. Trust us – your nose will thank you.
2. Skip the lines at the doctor’s office
Instead of waiting for hours at a crowded testing site or doctor’s office, an at-home nasal PCR test offers you all the conventional lab care you’d expect in a healthcare setting. In fact, recent research found that home test kit samples collected by 30 participants were just as accurate as samples collected by a healthcare worker. (Note: this study was not completed with an empowerDX test.)
3. Test on your schedule
No one wants to wait for an available appointment at your doctor’s office or local testing center. With an at-home test, order a kit when it works best for you and get results in just 48 hours. Test kits also have a shelf life of 60 days, so you can order ahead and have a test on hand when you need it.
4. Protect others
If you think you’ve been exposed to COVID-19, the last thing you want to do is venture out in public and potentially expose others. With an at-home nasal PCR test, you can stay home, get peace of mind, and do your part to keep others safe.
5. Maintain your privacy
Your health is your business and no one else’s. empowerDX’s sample collection methods and result portals are completely secure and compliant with U.S. health privacy regulations.
6. Affordable and covered by insurance
Getting tested for COVID-19 shouldn’t break the bank. An affordable COVID-19 test from empowerDX is only $99, and your test could be covered by insurance, as well as your HSA or FSA. Best of all, shipping is completely free.
Do yourself and your community a favor: order an at-home nasal PCR test from empowerDX, avoid the hassle, and get the health answers you need from the comfort of your home.
