G Medical Innovations Holdings Ltd. (NASDAQ: GMVD), a telehealth, medical device, and remote patient monitoring company providing clinical-grade solutions for consumers, medical professionals, and healthcare institutions, today announced that it has secured a 26,000 square foot site in Laguna, CA, to open one of the largest COVID-19 test processing laboratories in the United States 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,” said Dr. Yacov Geva, 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 general public and has the capacity to process samples for other labs and entities that require expedited results. The facility is expected to open by next week.
In January, Pittsburgh-based McDade Products, LLC and G Medical Tests and Services partnered to make millions of FDA EUA-approved COVID-19 PCR collection test kits available for retailers in response to a national shortage of COVID-19 test options. The LiveNow COVID-19 PCR Test Collection Kits provide 24 to 48-hour certified lab results and retail for $9.99. Visit https://www.mcdadegrp.com/ to place orders for the LiveNow PCR Collection Kits.
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.
