Emmanuel College has contracted with the Broad Institute, an internationally respected biomedical research center, to manage this vital component of our campus operations.

Why Do Total Tests Performed Not equal Total Positive Tests plus Total Negative Tests?

  • Test results may be received up to 24 hours after they are received by the lab, so positive and negative totals for a given day may trail the total number of tests taken.
  • Some test results are returned as inconclusive and require a person to re-test. Inconclusive tests are not included in either the positive or the negative test totals.
