At Home Testing, Where it’s Safe!
Sitting in your car for hours at a drive through testing lot is nobody’s idea of fun. Nor is sitting in a hospital waiting room with others getting tested because they fear that they are infected. Then finally coming in contact with high-risk, healthcare workers who bravely treat the sick and infected all day. Instead, miinehealth lets you stay home and have sterile kits shipped directly to and picked up from your home via FEDEX at no charge!
Times are tough. Don't pay for tests out of pocket.
miinehealth works with physicians and labs that are credentialled with Medicare, Medicaid and most commercial insurance companies. We can bill them directly so that you need not pay for your test out of pocket, not even a deductible, and that includes shipping… you pay $0 to get tested.
No Painful Nasal Jabbing!
We’ve all heard the stories of highly invasive nasal swabs that go deep into the sinus and back of throat, literally bringing patients to tears. Why suffer when you can simply spit into a tube and drop your specimen in the mail?
Highly reliable testing.
The IBX saliva test was the first ship to home saliva live virus test to be authorized by the FDA for emergency use in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been in use for the longest period with over 500,000 tests performed and is proven to be accurate and reliable.
What does this test measure? Virus or antibodies?The test determines whether you have been infected by testing for the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in your saliva. It does this by detecting unique genetic markers that are specific to the virus. This is not an antibody test and only detects whether you are currently infected. If you are interested in learning more about how this test works, you may refer to the FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization.
How does this test compare to the tests performed by hospitals or drive-thru clinics?Most of the tests currently available use a nasopharyngeal swab. Our tests are the first FDA EUA authorized saliva tests for COVID-19. Preliminary data from an independent study from Yale University has found saliva tests to be more sensitive and consistent than nasopharyngeal swabs.
What are the COVID-19 symptoms?The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough and shortness of breath. These symptoms generally appear between 2 and 14 days after being exposed to the virus. Symptoms range from mild to severe. According to the CDC, symptoms of COVID-19 may include: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea.
Can someone test negative and then later positive for COVID-19?Yes, it is possible. You may test negative if the sample was collected early in your infection and test positive later during this illness. You could also be exposed to COVID-19 after the test and get infected then. Even if you test negative, you still should take steps to protect yourself and others. See CDC guidance for Testing for Current Infection for more information.
How and when will I receive my test kit?Order your test and it ships to you with the highest priority postage for the fastest delivery to your address. You can expect to receive your test kit within ~1-2 days.

How quickly will I receive my COVID-19 test results?Results will be available 2-4 days from the time of purchase. Priority shipping to the lab is included. The lab will send your results within 72 hours of receiving your sample.
Is this test approved by the FDA?Absolutely. In April 2020, Rutgers RUCDR Infinite Biologics received the first FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) enabling the use of saliva tests to detect the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. Since then, a revised EUA for an at-home saliva sample collection was also approved. https://www.fda.gov/media/137773/download
