Emery Pharma and CP Lab Safety Launch Onsite COVID-19 Screening and Testing Service for Businesses Nationwide

By July 21, 2020

REVEAL is newly launched program designed to provide onsite COVID-19 testing service for businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area and other locations within the United States. Conducted in partnership with CP Lab Safety and DiaCarta, REVEAL offers diagnostic COVID-19 RT PCR tests and antibody testing four times per month, with the goal of quickly detecting infections, identifying asymptomatic employees, and minimizing the spread of the disease within the workplace.

Under the program, CP Lab Safety will offer businesses DiaCarta’s QuantiVirus™ SARS-CoV-2 Test, which has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration under Emergency Use Authorization, as well as Emery Pharma’s validated COVID-19 Antibody Test. The QuantiVirus™ SARS-CoV-2 Test is a PCR-based assay, which is a gold standard for molecular diagnostics, to determine COVID infection. Emery Pharma’s 10-minute COVID-19 antibody test indicates prior exposure to the virus.

Both tests would be administered by a CP Lab Safety-affiliated medical professional on-site at the business and analyzed by DiaCarta, a CLIA-certified laboratory and molecular diagnostics company. Test results will be available within 48 hours on a REVEAL confidential web portal. In the case of a positive diagnostic test, employer and employee will be notified, along with the local health department, so that proper health protocols may be followed.

“It’s important that employees and employers are fully educated on both their exposure and their infection so that they have the knowledge to make informed, responsible decisions about their health and how to protect those around them,” said Emery Pharma CEO Ron Najafi. “We are excited to be partnering with CP Lab Safety to bring our antibody test to businesses.”

The program is initially being launched in the San Francisco Bay Area, where CP Lab Safety has retained qualified medical staff to travel to businesses to administer the tests. Plans are under way to deploy a network of trained registered nurses to support the REVEAL service anywhere in the United States.

“We are excited to work with CP Lab Safety and Emery Pharma to make our SARS CoV 2 test available,” said Ram Vairavan, senior vice president of DiaCarta. “The economy needs to resume its growth and we believe that REVEAL initiative will ensure a safe work environment, enabling businesses to reopen with confidence.”
