1. Simplicity by Assurance Scientific Laboratories COVID-19 PCR Home Testing Kit - No Prescription Required, FDA Authorized

Then you can see your results within 24-48 hours (about 2 days) once the sample is received. The official lab results will be available on the Simplicity web platform and patients will receive their results via email/SMS notifications.

Review: This whole process was so easy. Simple instructions, the nasal swabs didn’t hurt (unlike other tests I’ve taken) and the registration process only took a couple minute to complete. So much more convenient than trying to make an appointment to get a COVID-19 test in-person. This will be my go-to method from now on.” – Amazon Customer

This kit for self-collection of a nasal sample, with shipping to laboratory for detection of SARS-CoV-2. You can get your results within 24 hours of sample arriving at lab. Just a reminder this test is only for people 18 years and older. This PCR test meets requirements for testing when traveling within the US (except Hawaii), and when traveling from the US to many international locationsAmazon uses what the CDC describes as the current “gold standard” for COVID-19 tests, Real-Time RT-Polymerase Chain Reaction, or PCR. You can be sure to have quick and accurate results with this kit! 

Review: The kit is really easy to use and I got the results 24 hours after I mailed the sample. Clear instructions are provided on how to collect the sample and it takes minutes. You don’t have to shove the swab way up your nostril like the early PCR tests. The shipping label makes it convenient to drop off samples at a UPS location. To be safe, I dropped the package off at a UPS store. You get tracking information every step of the way. Results can be downloaded to a .pdf. Be sure to read the fine print – the kit is for 18+ years. And, you need to collect your sample and ship it within 24 hours of registering the kit. You cannot register the kit in advance and save it for later. I highly recommend.”- Amazon Customer
