Testing can be provided directly with our laboratory or through our occupational health clinical partners. The solution is a comprehensive and tailor made 'back to work' screening solution for businesses of all sizes. That could be a one-off antibody screening session, a routine swab for active virus or any combination of both.

What getting an antibody test can tell you & your business?
A positive antibody test will tell you whether you’ve previously had the virus that causes COVID-19 and that your body has produced an immune response. For those running a business or team this can be helpful when devising back to work plans and contributing to strategies that cope with staff and resourcing concerns.
These tests give organisations a way forward in terms of minimising unnecessary and precautious staff absence, i.e. self-isolation. This can lead to a higher active workforce, lower disruption and greater output.
Help beat Covid-19 together by preventing a second spike in workforce incidents through increased testing.
Help provide statistical analyses to build a better picture of the pandemic and help form a strategy for future pandemics with the aim of keep human and financial losses to a minimum.
In the meanwhile, this dual test is one of a kind, best in class IgG and IgM detection. Ig refers to immunoglobulin, M and G are different classes of antibodies that differ in function of immune response or during different stages of the body’s defence. They indicate whether people have had the virus, and so whether or not they could be immune. Tests are done by taking a blood sample and looking for the presence of these two different COVID-19 antibodies.
Antibody testing is seen as an important part of the Government's approach to ending the lockdown and opening up the economy.
