PURCELLVILLE, Va. June 15, 2020 - Aperiomics, a biotechnology company deploying advanced technologies to identify the root causes of infectious disease, announced today that it has entered into a partnership with the Town of Purcellville, Virginia to host a COVID-19 testing day on Friday, June 19, 2020, from 9am to 7pm outside the former Rite Aid location (801 E. Main Street, Purcellville) on the corner of East Main Street and Ken Culbert Jr. Road in Purcellville.
Aperiomics will be administering both RT-PCR Tests for active infection along with IgM/IgG Antibody tests for COVID antibodies. Both tests can be performed quickly, with results returned in 12-72 hours for this event. By looking for both current infections and developed antibodies, public health officials can achieve a more complete picture of how the virus has spread in the community, including who may have previously been exposed and recovered and potentially immune to the virus.
Participants in this event will pay $150 for both virus and antibody testing. Those tested will get a superbill that can be submitted for potential insurance reimbursement if they meet medical guidelines for reimbursable testing.
Medical professionals, municipal leaders, and business owners interested in conducting their own COVID-19 testing with Aperiomics should contact the company at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-229-0406.
