Go here to attend a Q&A session for your state. In this meeting, we’ll provide you with tools to help transition your testing program.
Test Kit Registration
- If your organization would like to keep track of who is in what pool, you are free to do so, outside of the Concentric portal, for your own records.
- Registering Test Kits - Note the updated language to reflect that pools can only contain a maximum of 10 swabs.
- Printable Materials - Go here for a refresher on pooled sample collection.
Depending on your geographic location, switching to 10 pools may also result in a longer wait (turnaround time) for pooled results. Please refer to the detailed instructions emailed to you for specifics on what this means for your organization.
