COVID-19 Test Home Collection Kit

We have partnered with Infinite Biologics (IBX), the world’s largest university-based biorepository to provide high-quality at home test kits for the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

IBX received the first FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) enabling the use of saliva tests to detect the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.

Who should get tested? 

The virus’s incubation period is around 5 to 7 days, but it can be up to 14 days. If you get tested too early after exposure, it can be possible that you have a false-negative test. 

The healthcare professionals working with miinehealth follow CDC guidelines to decide when and who should get tested. 

Why are your tests so much cheaper than others? 

Simple - we have made the business decision to offer high-quality COVID testing to our customers at the lowest price possible so the availability of testing is never about costs.  

Moreover, we believe that we can actually cut testing costs by following daily digital screening protocols outlined by our miinehealth software. 

Frequently Asked Questions

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?


Your employer or school will order your test and it ships to you with the highest priority postage for fast delivery to your home. You can expect to receive your test kit within ~1-3 days with priority shipping.




What do I do once I receive my test kit?


Your test will be pre-registered to you by your employer or school. All you have to do is open the kit and follow the instructions. Then place the pre-paid return postage and it ships back priority mail or overnight FedEx.




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
