Viral Respiratory Pathogens testing

Do you think your loved one died from COVID-19?

The COVID-19 status is confirmed on all of our autopsies. A variety of medical conditions have similar symptoms to Covid-19.  Final Diagnosis Inc. is providing molecular testing for COVID-19 and 21 other viral pathogens on decedents.  Many individuals that die with COVID-19 have underlying medical conditions that may be felt to be the more likely cause of death, particularly if testing for the  SARS-CoV-2 virus has not been performed.  In Florida the Medical Examiner is not autopsying COVID-19 deaths. We are performing autopsies on COVID-19 deaths after embalming.  If not embalmed, we will only open the torso and not examine the cranial cavity. We can also just review the medical records to help understand the events leading up to their passing.
