Lateral Flow Testing
Professional Covid-19 Workplace Testing
The Coronavirus Pandemic has caused chaos and hardship across the globe, requiring businesses and organisations to find ways to adapt and operate as safely as possible. Ideally your workforce will operate from home, but for many businesses this is simply not an option. While social distancing and PPE can help to keep cross contamination to a minimum, it is inevitable that some members of the workforce will become infected – but until (and unless) they show symptoms, they become ‘silent spreaders’, infecting many other people without any knowledge of doing so.
The unusually long incubation period of Covid-19, combined with the fact that many people have very mild symptoms (or often none at all), means that only an effective testing programme can identify infectious individuals – as has been so clearly demonstrated in Liverpool late last year, and more recently, the lorry drivers at Dover Docks; testing works, and it has become a vital part of the response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
In addition to the RT-PCR Laboratory Tests currently used by Government testing centres – with which we are all familiar – there are two alternative ‘rapid tests’ available, these are the Covid-19 Lateral Flow Test (also known as the Covid-19 Antigen Test) and the Covid-19 Antibody Test.
- help safeguard your workforce and customers from exposure to infection
- minimise disruption to your business
- reduce absenteeism due to self-isolation
- identify symptomatic and asymptomatic Individuals (silent carriers) infected with the Covid-19 virus, who pose a risk to your workforce and any other individual that they come into contact with.
- provide your company with crucial information so that you can take strategic steps to safely implement a phased return to work.
Whether you require one-off screening of your employees or regular testing, we can create a bespoke testing programme that will minimise disruption to your activities and protect your workforce and clients.
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Celebrate Health & Fitness to anyone looking for quick reassurance from a friendly and efficient company.
Finding the best solution for your business
We offer all three testing methods either individually or in combination:
- Rapid on-site Lateral Flow (Antigen) Testing – nasal OR oral swab
- Rapid on-site Antibody Testing – finger prick blood test
- RT-PCR Laboratory Testing – nasal AND oral swab
Our ‘rapid tests’ take under 30 minutes with results provided during the consultation – therefore both the person being tested and management will know immediately whether the individual needs to be sent home to self isolate, or if it’s reasonable to assume that they are safe to be at work.
Any positive rapid test results should be followed up with an RT-PCR Laboratory Test for absolute confirmation of the presence of the virus. We can carry this test out for you or, as RT-PCR swab collection does not require medical supervision, this test can be carried out by the individual themselves – either at home or on your premises – and sent by post to the laboratory for analysis.
You are safe
