Medical technology services provider Althea UK and Ireland is now offering cost-effective SARS-CoV-2 rapid antigen tests.
Manufactured by Roche, the antibody test can help detect SARS-CoV-2 infection in those suspected of carrying the virus, with results available in 15 minutes. The test can be used for symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals.
Althea hopes that the service, which is available for pharmacies, dentists, hospitals and clinics, as well as hospital support companies whose staff access clinical settings, will provide a valuable initial screening for staff who might be exposed to COVID-19 or who work in high risk environments.
