Premier Medical Laboratory Services (PMLS), a nation leading advanced medical diagnostics lab, adds AditxtScore™ to its menu of testing services. Providing more clarity regarding a patient’s individual immunity profile, AditxtScore™ allows patients to know their level of protection that an immune response to the virus or vaccination has provided them. Now that a large segment of the population has either undergone vaccination or experienced a symptomatic or asymptomatic infection with SARS-CoV-2, AditxtScore™ provides information on immune status during the current phase of the pandemic.
“As new variants emerge, we want to equip physicians with the most advanced tests that allow a comprehensive view of their patient’s health status,” said Kevin Murdock, CEO of Premier Medical Laboratory Services. “With AditxtScore™, individuals can make more informed decisions about whether vaccination, boosters, or other risk mitigation strategies are the right course of action for them.”
PMLS, a CAP Accredited laboratory which has processed over 3.5 million COVID-19 tests and houses one of the largest Next Generation Sequencing variant tracing platforms in the country, has set out to provide the most advanced solutions to combat COVID-19 over the last two years. While the virus continues to spread and the implications of the new variants are unknown, it is vital that transmission rates, severity of infection, and immunity trends are monitored. AditxtScore™ can be used routinely to identify changes in immune response over time and contribute greatly to the continued understanding of responses to SARS-CoV-2. The test can also provide needed information for individuals, and in certain instances, may help to minimize vaccine hesitancy for those who are not protected by antibodies.
AditxtScore™ results provide answers to the following questions for an individual:
- Does the individual have antibodies present?
- Are the individual’s antibodies present as a result of vaccination or from an immune response to infection by the virus?
- Is the individual’s immune response likely to provide protection against future infection?
- What are possible ways to minimize risk of a future infection (e.g. boosting or limiting exposure)?
With a blood draw, AditxtScore™ provides an assessment of multiple antibody types against multiple SARS-CoV-2 antigens. AditxtScore™ also measures levels of neutralizing antibodies, which block viral entry into human cells. A proprietary algorithm is utilized to assess and translate clinical data into meaningful information for individuals. Interpretive information about results and possible ways to minimize risk are then provided to the patient. Developed at the CLIA-certified, CAP-accredited AditxtScore™ Center, led by lab scientists trained at prestigious institutions such as Mayo Clinic and Stanford University, the test is comprehensive and accurate.
In addition to further clarity that an individual can gain regarding their own immunity profile, employers can utilize AditxtScore™ to save time and money with their COVID-19 testing efforts by managing the frequency of testing. The test can also help to minimize lost time and wages for employees with less frequent quarantines. Lastly, it can keep employees safer by identifying those employees most at risk of infection.
