Test Us Bank

Help the U.S. make new discoveries about COVID-19.

Brought to you by: the National Institutes of Health Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADxSM) initiative.

Test Us Bank aims to collect samples to store for future research about the virus that causes COVID-19 and related viruses.

What is Test Us Bank research about?

  • Researchers are collecting and storing samples from people who do and do not feel sick.
  • This collection and storage of samples is called a biorepository or biobank.
  • Samples collected from participants will be stored and shared with other scientists for COVID-19 research.
  • Scientists will use the samples in their research to make new discoveries about COVID-19 and to develop new tests, treatments, and vaccines.

How can people help?

  • Participants will provide samples: a standard COVID-19 test and up to four additional samples to store in a biobank.

  • Participants will be asked about their health and other relevant information.

Will participants get the test results?

  • Participants will take a standard COVID-19 test when we collect samples for Test us Bank. Participants will receive the results of the standard COVID-19 test usually within one week.
