G Medical Innovations—a telehealth, medical device, and remote patient monitoring company—has secured a 26,000 square foot site in Laguna, California to open a COVID-19 test processing laboratory for its G Medical Labs, Tests, and Services division.
“The new facility will enable us to process a dramatic increase in samples we have begun receiving via the distribution success of our LiveNow At-Home PCR test kits developed in partnership with McDade Products, LLC. The first million test kits began shipping to retailers nationally last week, and millions more will be on retailers’ shelves in the coming weeks,” says Yacov Geva, PhD, president, and CEO of G Medical Innovations.
The Laguna lab will enable the company to process approximately 100,000 samples per day. The site will also offer same-day, walk-in COVID-19 PCR testing for the public, and has the capacity to process samples for other labs and entities that require expedited results.
G Medical Labs, Tests and Services currently operates storefront testing locations in California.
During the next few months, the company expects to expand its network of storefront testing locations in other U.S. regions to be announced at a later date.
G Medical Innovations is an early commercial stage healthcare company engaged in the development of next generation mobile health and telemedicine solutions and monitoring service platforms.
The company’s solutions and services are designed to empower consumers, patients, and providers to better monitor, manage and improve clinical and personal health outcomes, especially for those who suffer from cardiovascular disease (or CVD), pulmonary disease and diabetes.
