The disease at the heart of the current world pandemic (SARS-CoV-2 or “corona virus”), is responsible for a growing number of infections and deaths.
Infected people experience coughs, shortness of breath and fever. We’ve developed a nasal swab test that is designed to accurately determine whether or not you currently have COVID-19.
Our test will determine if you have the virus whether you’re currently experiencing commonly associated symptoms or not.
Benefits of our COVID-19 Test include:
* If you get tested for COVID-19 chances are you may need to get tested again if you begin to experience symptoms. This typically results in an additional charge. However, if you get tested a second time through us we’ll help cushion the cost.

Frequently asked questions
What is a pandemic? Is COVID one?
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization stated that COVID-19, the illness caused by a newly identified coronavirus, can be characterized as a pandemic because it has spread around the world and affects many people.
What is COVID?
Found mostly in animals, coronaviruses are a large family of viruses. In humans, they can cause diseases ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV). The illness caused by this new coronavirus has been named COVID-19.
What are the symptoms?
The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to other respiratory illnesses, including the flu and the common cold. Symptoms may include fever, sore throat, loss of sense of smell or taste, loss of appetite, chills, nausea and vomiting, cough or exacerbation of chronic cough, headache, muscle aches, shortness of breath, fatigue, runny nose or diarrhea. Other symptoms, although less common, include stuffy nose, conjunctivitis (pink eye), dizziness, confusion, abdominal pain, and skin rashes or discoloration of fingers or toes.
How does it spread?
Mainly through community escalation, the virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It is possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

What does our test offer for you?
COVID-19 has people looking for answers about symptoms and testing sites. We understand that people need fast and reliable answers to their most pressing concerns now more than ever, especially from home where they’re safe. Ambrose uses real time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), which means the test is done on respiratory samples obtained by nasopharyngeal swabs.
How long does the process take?
Ambrose strives on being as efficient and accurate as possible to ensure you get your test kit and results quickly and easily. Once you get your kit, administer the swab, and submit your sample back to us, we’ll have your results for you in a 24-hour turnaround time.
Why should I use this test?
If you’re concerned about being potentially infected with COVID, this test can accurately provide you with peace of mind surrounding the unknown. Not only will you be able to avoid waiting rooms, which therefore will keep you and others out of risk, but you can also enjoy the comfort of your own home while using our accurate services in a quick and efficient manner.
Can I order for my employees?
Yes you can! Ambrose is intensifying efforts to make the creation of large/population scale testing possible for offices and organizations. Putting your staff/workforce ahead means you putting mechanisms in place to make sure they are adequately tested and reducing in-staff risks and contagion. These efforts can be combined with the work plan safety adjustments your organization is making for effective working during this pandemic. Our Workforce Testing Program can be learned about here.
What is the extent of the Workforce Testing Program?
Ambrose not only does mass testing orders for offices and organizations, but we also offer enough resources to offer testing to an entire city or county. You can learn more about our civil testing program here.
