RAPID REASSURANCE

Protect your Employees


As employees return to work and organisations reopen, being able to test for coronavirus infection can play an important part of creating a safe environment at work.  Cellmark’s COVID-19 test delivers laboratory-quality analysis and rapid reassurance, with results reported within 24 hours.  Cellmark’s virus test can identify those who are infected but are not showing the symptoms of coronavirus (those who are asymptomatic) and so help to prevent the spread of the disease within the workforce.

Antigen test for COVID-19 Workplace Testing

SAFE, SENSITIVE, ACCURATE

COVID-19 PCR Testing


Cellmark provides a highly specific COVID-19 virus test sometimes referred to as an ‘antigen’ test.  This sensitive PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test detects the presence of COVID-19 viral RNA to identify people that currently have the virus.  The sensitivity of Cellmark’s PCR virus test means we can detect people at the early stages of infection which reduces the possibility of providing a false negative result.  This is the same type of test that is currently used by the government to test NHS staff and the public and is ideal for workplace testing programmes.

An alternative type of coronavirus test is called an antibody test which may indicate if someone has had coronavirus.  However, there is still some uncertainty about what level of immunity testing positive for antibodies might provide and what actions an employer should then take.

Diagnostic testing for the virus that causes COVID-19 targets the genetic material of the virus and identifies people who are currently infected and are at risk of spreading the disease.  This allows the individual and their employer to take immediate action to protect friends, family and work colleagues.
