With COVID-19 a central concern for most, the question is—how can you safely get your very important blood draws done while limiting your potential exposure to COVID-19?
In close coordination with transplant centers, CareDx now provides RemoTraC™, a remote, home-based, blood-draw solution using mobile phlebotomy for AlloSure and AlloMap® surveillance tests—as well as for other standard monitoring tests like immunosuppressant level, complete blood count, viral PCR, and Creatinine Ratio (kidney).
“Once again, we are amazed by the dedication and the willingness to literally go the extra mile by the care team at CareDx,” says Jim Gleason, president of Transplant Recipient International Organization (TRIO). “Many patients will benefit from a convenient service coming to their home. Transplant patients are concerned about timely information on the health of their transplant. RemoTraC might offer to many patients welcomed ‘peace of mind.’”
