The testing process
After we have delivered the number of swabs you require for your workplace, testing for employees can either be self-administered by employees themselves or conducted by a healthcare professional. Businesses should carry out all phases of the testing and delivery procedure as professionally as possible to ensure the highest level of accuracy possible in results. Once you have returned the swabs back to our labs, we will handle all the rest, and you will receive your results within 24 hours after submitting the swabs to be tested.
Why asymptomatic testing?
Asymptomatic testing is vital for slowing the spread of Covid-19, both within your workplace and throughout the UK. By testing everyone within your workplace, even when they don't show symptoms, we can identify and quarantine those who test positive without symptoms before they are able to pass the virus on to their colleagues, friends and family. This will significantly reduce the chances of an outbreak within the workplace and enable businesses to keep operating and stay open as efficiently as possible
