With the Christmas break fast approaching, now is the time to ensure that once the festivities are over employees are Covid-free and safe to return to work.

Durham-based Medi-Inn (UK) Ltd, a supplier of medical and hygiene consumables has identified a need for a quick, accurate, and suitably inexpensive Coronavirus test to help organisations reduce workforce downtime and provide peace of mind for employees returning to work in the New Year.

The Novel Coronavirus 2019-nCoV Antigen Test – Lateral Flow Test is a rapid, reliable, and affordable tool for detecting active coronavirus infections. The test can be used as the first line of defence to identify employees who are currently infected.

The test delivers results in just 15-20 minutes with no instrumentation, no need to send to a laboratory and demonstrates a sensitivity of 99.62% and specificity of 99.62%.

Wayne Dobson, Managing Director at Medi-Inn explained: “With lab-based tests, you get excellent sensitivity but might have to wait days or longer to receive results. With a rapid antigen test, you’re provided with a highly accurate result within 15-20 minutes enabling you to identify infectious and non-infectious people before they enter your working environment.

Wayne added: “Testing is key in the fight against COVID-19 and essential in making sure your workplace is safe and your staff feel confident to returning to work.”

The coronavirus testing kits start at an affordable £19.99+VAT per test.
