KENNEWICK, WA - Several big, blue trailers are rolling out to test people by the thousands for COVID-19 and its antibodies.
"We can do the gold standard," said Lynx Healthcare CEO, Ian Evans. "I mean, the type of test that we're ordering, there are lots out there, there's a big list but then there's what they're saying is the gold standard."
Lynx is using of the of the FDA emergency authorized tests and are also one of the few Washington Department of Health COVID-19 labs. One thing setting Lynx apart is their effort to eliminate human error in the testing process.
They're working to increase not only capacity but accuracy for locals.
"There are some tests with published results that are only 85% accurate," said Evans. "That's what's published on the FDA site for that particular brand. We did not buy any of those tests. That's not good enough. We wanted you know 99 to 100% accuracy."
