Maryland: Hundreds Of Saliva Samples Expire From Ripken Stadium COVID-19 Testing Site

Sharing is Caring!

ABERDEEN (WJZ) — Hundreds of saliva samples collected at Ripken Stadium Jan. 10 expired by the time they got to a lab in Texas.

The saliva samples collected on Jan. 10 were redirected from the primary lab in New Jersey after a COVID-19 outbreak led to staff shortages.

Those samples were then sent to a backup lab in Texas, according to a representative from Omnipoynt Solutions, the vendor at the Ripken Stadium location.

“Because of the differences in protocols between the two laboratories, those saliva samples didn’t arrive to the laboratory to be processed,” Aaron Poynton from Omnipoynt Solutions told WJZ on Monday. “Unfortunately, the PCR results couldn’t be processed.”
