MDX Labs Is Nevada’s Only NILA Recognized, CLIA Certified Laboratory
Henderson, Nev. – Locally owned and operated MDX Labs is able to expedite the process of all COVID tests in their Henderson laboratory offering a quicker result for those tested.
The owners of MDX Labs, Las Vegas entrepreneurs Dan Briggs and Tony Paoli, are also answering the call from businesses who seek on-site testing to operate in the safest way possible for their employees and the public.
Founded in March of 2020, MDX Labs is the state’s only privately owned laboratory capable of a wide range of molecular diagnostic testing.
MDX Labs is a member of the National Independent Laboratory Association (NILA) and is a CLIA certified lab. As a result of MDX Labs’ capabilities, it is also the backup lab for the Southern Nevada Health District.
“We quickly saw the need for increased COVID testing ability in the State of Nevada soon after the pandemic began,” said Dan Briggs, President & CEO, MDX Labs. “What shocked us was that most COVID tests for Nevadans had to be sent out of state for processing. That didn’t make sense to us as it only adds to the time someone must wait for their test result. Our goal was to create a better system for Nevada.”
“As small business owners, we understand why it is essential for many industries – some operating 24 hours a day – to have regular on-site testing and quick results,” said Tony Paoli, Co-Founder, MDX Labs. “Along with reducing the spread of COVID-19, regular testing protects staff members and the public so that business operations can continue.”
Test results are usually available in about 24 hours and are emailed to the recipient.
QuikSal™ Oral Rinse Collection Device
How people test for COVID-19 also makes MDX Labs unique. In partnership with Clinical Lab Consulting, MDX Labs has exclusive access to the QuikSal™ oral rinse collection device. Developed and manufactured in the United States, QuikSal™ eliminates the need for an anxiety-inducing and sometimes painful nasal swab. Each QuikSal™ collection device contains 2 ml of liquid which is swished in the mouth for 60 seconds and then returned to the container.
Once collected, the vials are processed at MDX Labs in Henderson. The QuikSal™ oral rinse collection device is covered by private insurance, Medicare and Medicaid. For those without insurance, testing is covered by funding through The Cares Act.
