Testing for Individuals
Routine screening for active COVID-19 virus is becoming common place. Through regular and routine screening, asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic individuals can be found and shielded to prevent the risk of transmission in the community.
Many countries are now stipulating that travellers are to be screened prior to arrival. COVID-free travel tests and certificates now available.
Our next generation RT-qPCR test is the latest tool being used to tackle coronavirus. Testing can be accessed via home sampling kit, one of our test centres or via our clinical partners.
For most people it is important to know if you have had the virus, not just because you are naturally curious to find out, but because it is useful to know. Most people who have been infected with Coronavirus develop antibody response that affords them some level of protection.
Antibody tests are used to detect antibodies to the COVID-19 virus to see if you have previously had the virus. The test works by taking a blood sample and testing for the presence of antibodies to see if you have developed an immune response to the virus. Antibody tests differ to virus swab (PCR) tests, which test to see if you currently have the virus.
Access to throat and mouth swabs may not have been available to you at the time when you have encountered symptoms that you suspected may have been caused by the virus. Our dual diagnostic Antibody test is the only one of its kind in the global market today which detects both IgG and IgM response and can confirm this definitively for you.
Testing for Businesses
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.
Screening could benefit all businesses. In particular interest is high in businesses and organisations where social distancing is difficult to maintain. These sectors include:
- Airlines and aviation companies
- Sporting organisations
- Manufacturing organisations
Testing programmes coupled with the latest apps and software can help to reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission through the workplace. This helps protect employees and and provide business continuity.
Our clinical partners cover a large area and are able to come to your workplace and provide solutions. For small business and personal solutions, please visit our individual testing page.
