CompuNet Expands COVID-19 Testing Locations With No Doctor’s Order Needed

February 22, 2021: Starting today, CompuNet Clinical Laboratories will begin offering both COVID-19 PCR and COVID-19 Antigen testing, without a doctor’s order, at the OnMain COVID collection center located at 1229 S. Main St., Dayton, across from Miami Valley Hospital.  Both tests are available to adults and minors (with guardian permission) and no appointment is necessary at the OnMain location.

Patients without a doctor’s order can purchase either the PCR test for $100 or the Antigen test for $60.  

While COVID-19 infections are decreasing, CompuNet is seeing an increased demand for direct access to COVID tests. Direct access allows for a patient to purchase a lab test, without a doctor’s order, and access their results online. The increased demand for direct access is likely due to individuals wanting to know their COVID test result before traveling and, in some cases, a negative COVID test result may be required for travel documentation.

“CompuNet has offered the direct access lab service, CompuNet Direct, since 2007,” says Teresa Williams, CompuNet COO. “Adding COVID-19 PCR and Antigen testing to the CompuNet Direct menu allows for individuals to have access to this testing without having to obtain a doctor’s order first. As our capacity to test COVID-19 has grown, we have been able to expand our services into direct access COVID-19 testing while maintaining a fast turnaround time for test results.”  

COVID-19 PCR testing is considered the “gold standard” for accuracy and is recommended for individuals who have COVID symptoms or who believe they have been exposed. COVID-19 PCR testing is highly recommended for those who need travel documentation. Results will be available within the 72-hour required travel window.

COVID-19 Antigen testing is typically recommended for an individual who is within 5 days of having COVID-19 symptoms and the test provides rapid results within a couple hours.
