MALVERN, PA — With the reinstatement of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s “Shots or Tests” Employer Mandate and the surge of COVID-19 variants across the country, corporations with one hundred or more employees have less than a month to establish a COVID-19 testing program for unvaccinated workers. Moreover, accelerating Omicron variant cases across the country have Americans scrambling to get tested before family gatherings.
While lines for testing and lack of supply have made the headlines, GENETWORx, a national laboratory and healthcare services company, announced that it currently has testing capacity from previous investment in infrastructure to help meet the demand for testing and assist both corporations and individuals.
“We started out as a national laboratory and, early in the pandemic, we invested in developing significant capacity for COVID-19 testing to build on what we already had,” said Steven Crossley, Head of Strategy for GENETWORx. “Since 2020, we have been adding tests, services, infrastructure, and technology which has led to expertise and innovation in all areas of the COVID-19 testing space, with particular emphasis in corporate testing.”
GENETWORx’ specialization in corporate testing includes successful ongoing testing programs at Fortune 500 employers, universities, assisted living facilities, state and government organizations, small businesses and K-12 schools. The company also developed, in partnership with Nucleus Healthcare, an app that ties together all aspects of the testing program in a comprehensive digital management system. The app was built on a software platform called Aura which provides results record keeping and reporting that can be used for managing state and federal compliance requirements as well as allowing patients or providers to easily access test results from an online portal.
