RT-PCR Test

The gold standard in COVID-19 testing

The RT-PCR test will help diagnose whether an individual is infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19. The test is a swab based protocol that collects cells from the back of the throat and the nose. This is the same test as used by the NHS and Formula 1.

How the Test Works

What’s Being Tested?

The presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus

Deploying the RT-PCR Test

On-Site Set Up

Our flexible collection process allows a customised setup to your unique requirements by installing a collection booth, mobile testing unit or using space already available at your site. Clinical procedures are tailored to maximise safety for both collection staff and subjects.

Sample Collection

A trained medical practitioner will collect the sample from your team, staff or employees. Sample collection involves a swab to the back of the throat and the nose, which takes around 30 seconds to complete.

Lab Delivery

Speed and efficiency are critical in putting COVID-19 test results to use. Minutes after testing is complete, a courier will collect the samples and fast-track them to our lab for analysis.

Secure Results

Results are delivered within 24-48 hrs into a secure clinical oversight dashboard. Your nominated admin will receive the results and let your subjects know if they are safe to resume work or play.

Maintaining the Highest Standards

Methodology

“Molecular (e.g. PCR) testing of respiratory tract samples is the recommended method for the identification and laboratory confirmation of COVID-19 cases.”
