Cedar Diagnostics joined the fight against the novel coronavirus and COVID-19 by offering swab-based screening testing for the detection of active infections as well as serologic testing for antibodies against the virus that identify past infections. We are one of few Colorado laboratories that have the capability to offer both the screening and antibody tests locally. This is partly because of UniPath, our sister laboratory based in Denver, CO, which operates a sophisticated high complexity molecular laboratory certified under CLIA-88 guidelines. The lab is also CAP (College of American Pathologists) accredited.

If you are in the Southwest Colorado region and believe you have been exposed or infected by the novel coronavirus and want to be tested please see below.
