The Science Behind Project Screen

Providing in-depth, accurate and valuable health information is at the core of what we do at Prenetics.

Excellence at Every Step

For our latest initiative, Project Screen, we have deployed our strict scientific protocols, world-class research, and advanced technology, across each of our COVID-19 testing solutions, including RT-PCR, OxLAMP, Antigen, and Antibody.

Pre-Covid our business focused on providing personalised preventative health solutions via DNA and blood tests. Our company’s mission has always been to make complex science accessible via a range of innovative self-collection test kits. In 2020, we adapted and evolved into COVID-19 testing, taking advantage of our laboratory network, scientific expertise, and digital systems to deliver world-leading COVID-19 testing solutions.

RT-PCR: The gold standard in COVID-19 testing

RT-PCR is recognised as the leading COVID-19 testing method, to detect viral RNA of SARS-CoV-2

  • The RT-PCR test will help diagnose whether an individual is infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes coronavirus (COVID-19).
  • The test is a swab-based sample collection method that collects cells from the back of the throat and the nose, which takes around 30 seconds to complete.
  • All samples are sent to our UK-based laboratory for analysis. All samples are processed in ISO-15189/ISO-17025 internationally accredited laboratories. Our laboratory partners are UKAS accredited or UKAS applicants and DHSC validated, and use RT-PCR assays that have the highest levels of accuracy based on the QCED UK EQAP program.
  • Within 24 hours of receiving swabs at our laboratory, samples are analysed, and results delivered securely online.

OxLAMP: Rapid screening for COVID-19

OxLAMP testing is a point of care, swab-based protocol for the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

  • The test is a swab-based sample collection method that collects cells from the back of the throat and the nose, which takes around 30 seconds to complete.
  • Samples are analysed at the test site, immediately after collection, delivering results in a matter of hours.
