We can now test surface swabs for the coronavirus in our laboratories!
Many companies would like to have more information about how widespread the virus is in their environment, and the effectiveness of cleaning and disinfection practices. We can supply you with swabs which we can then test for the presence of SARS-CoV-2, which is the virus that causes the COVID-19 disease.
Correctly conducted environmental investigations contribute to a better overview of the spread of the virus in our environment.
We can provide suitable PCR swabs which can be used on:
Shared contact areas: Sales/reception counters, door handles, light switches, keyboards, shopping trolleys etc.
Food preparation areas and equipment
Assembly lines: equipment/ machinery, packaging materials etc.
Work premises: lockers, canteens, medical bays, taps, restrooms etc.
Communal areas in the service + hospitality industries: restaurants, care homes/residential, leisure center changing rooms/lockers/showers/taps etc.
Medical areas: Respiratory masks, protective clothing, hospital equipment/furniture etc.
In order to make the procedure as simple and practical as possible, we can send you the swab kits by post. You can return them by post/courier or deliver to us in Bristol, or please ask us about collection/drop off availability.
Full step-by-step sampling instructions will be provided with the swabs, however we’re more than happy to go through any queries you have before you use the swabs. These swabs can be transported at ambient temperature, so no need to refrigerate them. Once you return them back to us in Bristol, the swabs are analysed for SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) in our laboratories.
You will then receive the final reports within 2-3 working days. Next working day turnaround is available on priority samples, providing analysis is arranged in advance.
Please contact us if you require any further information and our technical experts will be happy to talk with you:
