The COVID-19 Emergency Testing Program

Please DONATE TODAY to support our  COVID-19 testing program.

The Bedford Research Foundation has transitioned its regular non-profit laboratory services to offer fast and highly-accurate COVID-19 testing to hospitals, clinics and doctor’s offices in Massachusetts. Please see our March 30 press release with Rep Ken Gordon.

Our hope is to reduce the wait time for results and burden on clinicians trying to treat the disease. The BRF laboratory technicians are now working in round-the-clock shifts to ensure that results from testing are available within 24 hours of the sample arriving at the lab.

Your support is urgently needed to help us maintain our operations. We are receiving funding from the state to cover the basic costs of the test, but this does not cover of all of our expenses or the investment needed to shift our operations during this time of need. Your donation is tax-deductible in accordance to state and federal laws and not in connection to any personal services received from the donation.

To learn more about how to get tested, please call or visit your doctors office or local hospital. For more information about our testing program, please email

Thank you for your support. It is our privilege to help during this crisis.
