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.
  • The Prenetics laboratory and our laboratory partners are UKAS accredited or UKAS applicants, and DHSC validated; and use RT-PCR assays with the highest accuracy levels 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.

Lateral Flow: Rapid antigen testing

Lateral flow tests perform well with high viral loads, helping to determine if someone is infectious with coronavirus within 20 minutes.

  • Our COVID-19 lateral flow antigen tests are used by the UK Government & NHS
  • The test is a swab-based process that collects cells from your nose which takes around 30 seconds to complete
  • Packaged in a compact box, we provide everything you need to self-swab from home (or anywhere!)
  • Step-by-step instructions included to guide you through the swab process, generating the results, and uploading a photo for verification

The Laboratory

All PCR samples are sent to UK-based laboratories for analysis. Prenetics EMEA Ltd is UKAS accredited to ISO 15189 (Medical Laboratories) and ISO 22870 (Point of Care Testing) under the unique reference number 22222. Our laboratory partners are UKAS accredited or UKAS applicants, and DHSC validated.
