2 Determine if a test is right for your child and add it to your cart.

Once you have found a test you are interested in, click Learn More, review the available information, click Add to Cart, and then click My child. Next, you may be asked several questions that will help determine if the lab test you selected is right for your child. If it is, the lab test will be added to your cart. If it isn't, then the test will show as unavailable for purchase.

Please be aware of the following when purchasing tests for your children:

You can only purchase testing for one child at a time

You can only purchase one COVID-19 test at a time

You must accompany your child when they when they come into have their sample collected

At-home self-collection kits cannot be purchased for children

3 Check out. Go to your cart () and checkout:

a If you already have a MyQuest account, sign in; otherwise, click Continue as a New Customer.

You must have a MyQuest account if you want to purchase tests for your child because MyQuest provides a secure way for you to receive your child's lab test results. If you don't already have an account, you can create one as part of the checkout process.

b Schedule an appointment time and the location where your child will get their specimen collected or click Decide later.

Keep in mind that you have 60 days to go to a Quest Patient Service Center and get your child's sample collected.


Appointments are strongly encouraged and will receive priority. If you choose Decide later and walk in, you will have to wait for the next available opening.

If you are purchasing COVID-19 testing, you will not be able to complete your purchase without scheduling an appointment.
