Your Partner in Testing

Shield T3 enables informed decision- making to keep your schools safe using:

Innovative, regional mobile labs

Easy-to-administer, saliva-based qPCR tests

A variety of cost- effective pooled testing options

Fast sample processing and informative results dashboard

Our track-record with over 1,000,000 tests processed and counting

Our regional labs are based in mobile testing centers that are deployed semi-permanently. These labs enable Shield T3 to rapidly process the volume of tests needed for nearby schools* at less than $35 per sample processed.

*Testing is also available for schools outside our mobile lab regions.

Our saliva-based tests* are non-invasive and do not require medical personnel to collect samples. This enables each school to create a socially distanced testing process tailored to specific needs.

*Individual and/or pooled samples are tested via a highly accurate qPCR process. Positive samples are double tested to ensure accurate results and very few false positives.

Our pooled testing option allows us to test groups quickly by pooling (or combining) individual samples in a single analysis. If a pooled sample tests positive, the original samples are individually tested and the positive individual is identified.
Once samples arrive at the lab, the turnaround time for results is 6–12 hours, much faster than our competitors, and our intuitive results dashboard* allows you to visualize the data to make informed decisions.

*Individual dashboards will vary depending upon specific needs.

Shield T3 is trusted for pre-K through university students around the country. Our clients include one of the largest school districts in the US serving 45 schools and 38,000 students, 30 youth summer camps, and 75+ education-oriented organizations.

*Our tests works for ages 3 and up.
