Low-Cost COVID-19 PCR Testing for Schools

Use Medio to manage your COVID-19 cases and focus on what your school does best...educating children.


Let Medio provide low-cost yet accurate COVID-19 PCR testing to your staff, faculty, and student body.

School Districts

Medio has the high volume capacity and surge management needed to test every school in your district regardless of size.


We understand that the school is never safe unless the extended school community is safe. At Medio we extend the same test pricing to every family member in the school community.

Simple door-to-door testing process takes the difficulty out of sample collection and result tracking

  1. Barcoded sample collection kits with saliva vials, funnels, alcohol swabs and shipping cassettes are shipped in bulk to your school.
  2. Automated matching between student’s registration records and sample barcode.
  3. The Medio web application uploads patient information, test kit barcode, symptom questionnaire answers, and vital sign measurements to a HIPPA compliant cloud server.
  4. Administrators drop off the sealed vials at a Medio collection site, where they are loaded into shipping cassettes, packaged and shipped to the nearest Medio Lab.

Why Medio's testing is better than our competitor's "pool testing"

With pooled testing, you have to retest all individuals anytime a positive is found in the pool. Medio’s advanced molecular barcode system maintains many of the cost benefits of pooled testing, but never requires a retest to find the positive party.

*Test expenses are billed first to health insurance, then tests for those not covered by insurance are billed to state and federal funds (CARES act), and finally, those covered by neither are billed to schools. Pricing includes all software, setup, introductory training & support. Medio’s funding experts will help you tap local, state, and federal aid as well as family insurance coverage to minimize your school’s out-of-pocket expenses.
