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 a 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 99.76% 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.
