Media Statement: Testing Demand and Result Timeframe

LabCorp has performed approximately 8.5 million molecular tests since first making our COVID-19 test available in March, and we are now able to process 180,000 tests per day with plans to increase capacity further.

With this additional capacity, we have reduced the average time to deliver results to 2-3 days from specimen pickup. For hospitalized patients, the average time for results is faster.

We continue to be focused on reducing the time it takes for a patient to receive their result, and as additional equipment and supplies become available, we expect the average time to improve. LabCorp continues to be committed to doing everything we can to respond to the health crisis.
