Acupath Laboratories, Inc., a leading provider of sub-specialized anatomic and molecular pathology services, has partnered with CLX Health, developer of cloud-based solutions, and the TrustAssure platform, which is utilized by dozens of airlines globally, servicing over 75 countries worldwide. Acupath is part of a select group of laboratory providers in the greater NYC area meeting the COVID-19 testing needs for international travel destinations that require a negative PCR test for entry.
Patients can book an appointment through the TrustAssure platform to find a COVID testing location convenient to them. Patients receive their lab results from the TrustAssure Provider Lab Portal and transmit their report and compliance status directly to their airline prior to traveling.
“Acupath is proud of our collaboration with CLX Health and the TrustAssure program as part of our continued efforts to help society return to normalcy,” said John Cucci, chief sales officer, Acupath Laboratories. “We are committed to delivering exceptional service and the fastest possible PCR test turn-around-time to facilitate international travel for those in the greater NYC area.”
TrustAssure’s healthcare provider network ensures travelers are given options for COVID-19 PCR tests that satisfy the entry requirements for international destinations, including the required testing timeframe. Using TrustAssure eliminates the need to be tested last minute at the airport.
“CLX Health is honored to have Acupath as a valuable lab in our network, enabling the TrustAssure program to successfully provide COVID-19 testing for our partner airlines in the crucial New York City market,” said Bob Fluery, global lab director for CLX Health.
Acupath’s traditional business is in cancer diagnostics. The company launched its FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA)-authorized COVID-19 real-time PCR assay in May 2020 to support its clients who required COVID-19 test results for their employees as well as to screen patients in advance of elective surgery, and has performed over 600,000 tests to date.
