Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Pooled COVID-19 Testing?
Pooled COVID-19 testing is an accurate method of testing for the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus by testing groups of individuals together to increase efficiency and speed. Swabs taken from each person in the group are combined together into a pooled sample and tested using the same resources normally used for one sample.
How reliable is Pooled COVID-19 Testing?
Accuracy is not sacrificed with pooled testing. Large groups can be tested and results received quickly because of Mirimus Labs’ high volume, 3 stage testing protocol. COVID-19 RT-PCR testing with SalivaClear is an FDA-approved, cost-effective, efficient method of testing schools, organizations, sports teams, places of worship, and events.
Is everything HIPAA compliant?
Yes. Together with our partners at Mirimus Labs and CoVerified, September Health Solutions’ testing results platform is fully HIPAA compliant. CoVerified’s software tools are also HIPAA compliant.
What makes saliva samples superior to swab testing?
Saliva samples are considered the gold standard for Pooled COVID-19 PCR testing. Saliva samples can be collected by non-medical professionals. In fact, a self-collected saliva sample is as accurate as a nasal swab sample collected by a healthcare professional.
Nasal or nasopharyngeal swab testing is invasive and uncomfortable for many, especially children. Often, children are afraid of the nasal test. A saliva test only requires spitting into a tube. It is easy and children willingly produce saliva samples for frequent testing.

September Health’s partnership with Mirimus and CoVerified enables us to offer Pooled COVID-19 RT-PCR testing that is less expensive than individual testing and is scalable.
