The Greenville Chamber announced an initiative to provide COVID-19 testing to Upstate businesses with fast turnaround of results and exclusive, discounted rates.
Through an exclusive partnership with Scalpel Solutions, Inc., participating businesses will receive employees’ COVID-19 test results at discounted rates, with the ability to save even more through volume pricing, with most results available in 12 to 48 hours.
“The Greenville Chamber has long been a staunch advocate of business in the greater Greenville area,” said Carlos Phillips, President/CEO of the Greenville Chamber. “The Chamber seeks to provide value to businesses by partnering with high quality organizations to offer in-demand services at affordable prices. One such in-demand service is that of reliable, easy-to-access COVID-19 testing with a quick turnaround of test results. Long lag times in testing results cost businesses time and money, in addition to testing costs. Our partnership with Scalpel Solutions will help save businesses both.”
Scalpel Solutions specializes in offering mobile laboratory services at low cost, and travels to locations throughout the Upstate to perform COVID-19 testing in the comfort of an individual’s home or office, at their convenience and on their schedule. There is no minimum number of patients needed for onsite testing and doctor's notes or history of symptoms/exposure are not required for testing, if not using insurance. Scalpel Solutions currently has two mobile units that provide rapid antibody testing, serum testing and nasopharyngeal/oropharyngeal swab PCR testing for COVID-19, and usually can schedule most appointments for services the same day or next day. They are a CLIA certified high complexity mobile laboratory and only hire local phlebotomists and laboratory technicians from Greenville and the surrounding Upstate area. Businesses may expect:
- Testing results in 10 minutes for rapid antibodies and an average result time of 12 to 48 hours for PCR testing done in-house, with the ability to get results for urgent cases in as little as 6 hours, with additional charge.
- Affordable pricing as low as $55 per PCR test, which includes mobile testing in home or office, with no additional cost or minimum number of tests.
- Easy access to scheduling tests with same or next day availability in most cases.
- Free consulting with businesses to implement screening and testing protocols.
Dr. Frank Cioppetini, MD, CMO Scalpel Solutions stated, “I am happy to have the opportunity to work with the Greenville Chamber and its Investors to provide for their laboratory and testing needs. We hope that providing rapid, convenient, and high quality testing services for COVID-19, businesses will be able to reduce the health and financial burdens brought on by this disease, so that they can continue making Greenville one of the greatest communities in the world.”
