The self-collection portion of the ALL-IN SC study will 1) determine how accurate at-home tests are, 2) if South Carolinians like these test options, and 3) if residents trust their test results. If selected for this part of the study, you will be asked to provide a small blood and nasal swab sample and perform two self-collection tests. A certified phlebotomist will collect less than 1 tablespoon of blood. If selected, you can bring a ‘plus one’ with you!

If you have received an invitation letter:

  1. You should register for an appointment online using our confidential registration system:  website address.
    If you plan to bring a ‘plus one’, they will also need to register and create their own appointment.
  2. Show up to the testing site on the day and time of your appointment.
  3. Check-in at the registration table, and follow the steps listed on your personalized directions form.
  4. Complete all sample collections within 20 to 30 minutes. And you’re done!

You will receive your test results ‘for research purposes only’ within a few days by email. The participant will receive an email notification to login to a secure portal to review results, download and print if needed.

All participants will receive a monetary incentive.
