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

Premier Pulse     March 2021

In late February, CompuNet Clinical Laboratories began offering both COVID-19 PCR and COVID-19 Antigen testing without a doctor’s order at the OnMain COVID collection center 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.

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 five days of having COVID-19 symptoms and the test provides rapid results within a couple hours.
