The Covid Consortium

The COVID Consortium brings the critical and necessary resources of multiple CLIA certified, CAP and COLA accredited medium and high complexity laboratories, clinicians and technology together to allow the delivery of a consistent COVID-19 test with equally consistent result delivery.


Who We Are

In Mid March, as the COVID-19 crisis continued in the U.S., one thing became clear to the medical staff at CopernicusMD; either States didn’t desire mass testing for COVID-19 infection or, they simply couldn’t organize it. 

It was puzzling to think that with the resources of the Federal and State governments on both an academic and financial level that broad-based testing in every state could not be mobilized.  So the Medical team at CopernicusMD got to work.


The mission of the COVID Consortium has two critical priority points.

We recognize the need for reliable, clinically valid testing at scale.

We recognize the need for broad based COVID-19 testing at the employer level to support the re-opening of the American economy.
