It is designed to be a CLIA-waived test, which means someone with a 7th grade education is able to run it. Please see our Press Release which was just sent out Friday, 7/31. Here are the background profiles of each of the individuals we are seeking. I will find out how many instruments they would be running. Set up takes just several minutes each and each instrument runs for 25-30 minutes so there is some down time in between. I think there would not be more than 5 instruments. I ran 2 at a time last weekend, and had lots of down time . When we did the intake call, we can verify that there are no live samples that is what we were handling last weekend.
