New Midtown site to offer PCR and other rapid covid tests with Results in Minutes®. FastLabs continues expansion with new locations and laboratory technologies, bridging the gap in Point-of-Care services and accessibility
MIAMI – (September 30, 2021) FastLabs, the leading rapid medical testing company, and its strategic partner, Miami-based startup REEF Technology through its healthcare division REEF Health, announce the expansion of its rapid COVID-19 testing locations. The newest combined location will be in Midtown at 400 NE 36th St, Miami, FL 33137 (behind Taco Bell). This addition joins the other FastLabs sites located across South Florida at Dolphin Mall, The Falls Mall, and Sawgrass Mills.
The Midtown site (now accepting appointments) will offer PCR tests, rapid antigen tests, rapid antibody tests with results given as quickly as a few minutes, and a complete flu panel with results in under an hour. All FastLabs’ tests are authorized by the FDA and meet the highest accuracy standards of specificity and sensitivity.
FastLabs aims to increase patient accessibility to fast answers without having to get out of their cars or wait in long lines. All sites are cash-operated and offer all paperwork for insurance reimbursement, further reducing barriers to rapid access and facilitating access to the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund, where private insurers must waive a member’s payments for COVID-19 diagnostic testing and related services. Appointments are scheduled via FastLabs’ website www.fastlabsmed.com. Walk-ups are permitted, but appointments are encouraged.
“Our partnership with REEF has allowed us to rapidly increase our footprint in South Florida and maximize our services to reach more patients,” said Dr. Raul Cruz, Chief Medical Officer of FastLabs. “The addition of this new location helps us be where patients live, while helping keep more neighborhoods safe and healthy.”
The locations and logistics are made possible through REEF Technology’s healthcare arm, REEF Health, which uses its network of more than 5,000 parking locations, staffing and infrastructure to help healthcare providers reach more patients. This allows COVID-19 testing sites to operate with speed and efficiency while minimizing the risk of exposure and transmission.
“Healthcare is inundated with a wide range of obstacles. Our partnership with FastLabs speaks directly to REEF’s commitment to provide easily accessible medical services,” said Arezoo Nazari, REEF Technology’s Head of Healthcare. “We are pushing to be comfortable with the uncomfortable, by challenging the status quo of the traditional care model delivery, using unconventional venues to bring exceptional care closer in proximity to the communities we serve.”
Patients no longer have to wait for traditional healthcare timeframes while health transparency is at the fingertips of the consumer. FastLabs is committed to convenient testing sites and reliable answers while operating in compliance with all local, state, and federal laws, rules, and regulations.
