Randox Laboratories (Crumlin, UK) has 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 Program, uses gold standard PCR technology to generate results in one-three hours. Each Mobile Laboratory will be capable of processing up to 1,000 samples per day, to allow employers to uphold COVID safety within the workplace and maintain maximum output. As part of the Randox Mobile COVID-19 testing service, a team of healthcare professionals will collect the samples on site, and a Laboratory Technician will subsequently expedite the sample and reports the results.

The state-of-the-art Randox Mobile COVID-19 Laboratory comes fully staffed and stocked for testing, and is suitable for any and all industries. It can be booked to attend any location within the UK, providing a unique testing solution bespoke to each client’s needs.

“As the nation continues to navigate the working challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, an increasing number of organizations will want to implement a COVID-19 testing regime so that they can sustain safe working environments,” said Dr. Peter FitzGerald, Randox Managing Director. “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 Programe, brings us one step closer to a timely return to a more normal society.”

“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 symptoms, frequent screening of asymptomatic patients, is vital to identify any hotspots and limit further spread,” added FitzGerald. “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.”
