For over ten years, StemExpress has been committed to fostering healthy, thriving communities on a local and global scale. In the wake of the unprecedented global COVID-19 pandemic, Ms. Dyer recognized the immediate need for convenient, reliable COVID-19 testing, with rapid turnarounds times of hours - not days. With StemExpress's existing cutting-edge laboratories located throughout the nation, we quickly implemented a seamless, end-to-end COVID-19 testing solution, all while continuing to expand our core cellular research and clinical efforts. StemExpress has continued to provide crucial support to communities, healthcare entities, and local businesses, all of whom were instantly overwhelmed with new obstacles and safety concerns relating to COVID-19.
StemExpress provides a turn-key testing solution, including online patient registration, scheduling, specimen collection, pop-up site management, and laboratory testing using gold-standard PCR testing at high-volume capacity with rapid turn-around times. StemExpress directly and proudly supports frontline workers, inner-city communities, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, school districts, correctional facilities, utility companies, tribal territories, territorial governments, and major league sports. We recently expanded our partnership with the Sacramento Kings to include testing during at-home games for the home team and the away-team players.
Through public health partnerships, StemExpress has provided free testing services to vulnerable members of the community, including the uninsured and other under-represented populations. We have also implemented mobile RV laboratories to bring reliable COVID-19 testing to underserved rural and agricultural communities.
