Today, watch Caitlin Syrews and Kellie Middleton – a current Clinical Medical Assistant student at West Virginia Junior College Bridgeport demonstrate how to perform a rapid mono test.
A rapid mono test is known to be CLIA-waived. The Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments regulate laboratory testing and require clinical laboratories to be certified by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services before they can accept human samples for diagnostic testing. Therefore, making these tests simple tests with a low risk for an incorrect result. This demonstration will inform you on what to expect when receiving a mono test, how to perform, and read the results. Enjoy!
