Carmel-based Aria Diagnostics has launched an online portal for people wishing to be tested for COVID-19. The company says the self-pay portal gives users the ability to request a test online and set up a date and time for them to visit the drive-through testing site at the Aria lab on the northwest side of Indianapolis.
Aria says its staff will perform the test while the patient remains in the car. Results will be sent via email within 48 hours.
“We are extremely excited to roll out our new self-pay, drive thru testing because we truly believe that people are seeking the peace of mind that they aren’t carrying the corona virus that causes COVID-19,” said Zak Khan, co-founder of Aria Diagnostic Laboratories. “It is our driving mission and belief that, in order to beat this virus, we must test everyone. To do this, the tests must be affordable, accessible and accurate. I applaud all of the efforts being made by the federal, state and local governments to make testing a priority and hope our efforts will enhance those being rolled out daily.”
The self-pay service will cost $175 per test, according to the web portal.
Aria Diagnostics already provides testing for front line city employees in various Indiana communities, a service that began at the beginning of April in Carmel. Two weeks ago, the company announced it is partnering to provide thousands of testing kits to New York City.
After launching the web portal Wednesday morning, Khan says the company is already seeking quick results.
