Jordan Rose pulled up to ARCpoint Labs in Scottsdale, stepped out of her car and held out her left hand, following instructions from two lab workers wearing masks and coats.
One of the workers approached her with a small green tube topped with a needle and pressed it against her middle finger. With a little click of the needle, a few drops of blood oozed out, which the worker collected with a plastic straw and deposited into a white plastic cartridgeno bigger than a flash drive.
“That was it?” Rose asked through her blue medical mask.
As the Scottsdale attorney waited for one worker to bandage her finger, the second worker added a few drops of a liquid solution into the same cartridge.
Two minutes after she stepped out of the car, she was done. Her results would be ready in another 10 minutes and would tell her whether she may have already had COVID-19.
