Workplace Testing for COVID-19
Workplace Testing for COVID-19
The BioSURE workplace testing solution has been designed to ‘get Britain back to work’ in a simple and COVID safe way.
BioSure offer a range cost-effective, seamless COVID–19 testing solution for your workplace. Using the ground-breaking UK invented and manufactured KnowNow™ Saliva Test, will let you know if people have current infection in real time, from a simple saliva sample.
The Know Now™ test uniquely detects the spike protein on the outside of the Sars-Cov 2 virus. Because there are are so many of spikes to each virus, it enables us to have extremely low levels of detection. In fact, independent evaluations show such low levels of detection that they can potentially identify someone with current COVID-19 infection, the day before they become infectious to others.
BioSure are able to offer an end-to-end service, including the test, the trained healthcare professional and the technology to record and monitor the profile of your workforce. Test your team quickly, efficiently, and easily on-site, with individual results available in 15 minutes.
What about antibody testing?
The AbC-19™ COVID-19 Antibody Test is fully UK developed and manufactured and can detect neutralising antibodies generated from either natural previous infection or from an immune response to the vaccine.
There is still lots to learn about how long immunity can last and it is the neutralising antibodies that are critical as these are the antibodies that provide immunity.
By knowing people’s COVID-19 immunity status it allows employers and organisers to mitigate risk and make better informed choices on both micro and macro levels. Should immunity passports be implemented, then antibody testing will become a requirement.
It is likely that repeat and regular testing is required and this will become increasingly relevant as the vaccine programme continues to be rolled out.
How does the AbC-19™ antibody test work?
The AbC-19™ Neutralising Antibody Test is a simple to perform, finger prick test which only needs 5ul of capillary blood and gives accurate results in 20 minutes.
Extensive data is available demonstrating outstanding performance with the vaccine immune response.
What happens to the results?
