Randox launches Mobile COVID-19 Lab for Workplace Testing
World-leading diagnostics company Randox Health has today unveiled a new Mobile Laboratory Service which will offer rapid and reliable COVID-19 workplace testing.
The service from Randox, which is the largest COVID-19 testing provider in the UK and Ireland, and a partner in the UK Government’s National COVID-19 Testing Programme, uses gold standard PCR technology to generate results in 1 – 3 hours.
Each Mobile Laboratory will be capable of processing up to 1000 samples per day, to allow employers to uphold COVID safety within the workplace and maintain maximum output.
Dr Peter FitzGerald, Randox Managing Director, said;
“As the nation continues to navigate the working challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, an increasing number of organisations will want to implement a COVID-19 testing regime so that they can sustain safe working environments.
“With this in mind we continue to expand our portfolio of bespoke testing products and services, and our latest addition, the Mobile Testing Laboratory, in conjunction with our work within the National Testing Programme, brings us one step closer to a timely return to a more normal society.”
As part of the Randox Mobile COVID-19 testing service, a team of healthcare professionals collect the samples on site, and a Laboratory Technician subsequently expedites the sample and reports the results.
The Mobile Laboratory will be available across the UK from 14th December 2020.
Dr FitzGerald continued;
“Since a new study by researchers at the University College London revealed that 86% of people who tested positive for COVID-19 did not have virus symptoms1, frequent screening of asymptomatic patients, is vital to identify any hotspots and limit further spread.
“Our Mobile COVID-19 Laboratory, which uses gold standard PCR technology and can visit the location of your choice for immediate service, will promote safe working practices, allow companies to demonstrate their commitment to their staff, and facilitate recovery of the UK economy.”
The Randox Mobile COVID-19 Laboratory comes fully staffed and stocked for testing, and is suitable for any and all industries – Construction, Aviation, Hospitality, Retail and more.
