Screen4 can provide access to the latest revolutionary testing technology which can identify and confirm the presence of COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2), the new strain of Coronavirus. We can offer two types of testing. Our COVID19-S42 is a focused test testing for presence of COVID19 only and our COVID19-S41 tests for up to 9 different strains of Influenza.
Our S42 kit is a focused test which only tests for the Covid-19 strain. The kit is a ‘self-test’ that includes a sample swab, collection tube, transportation tube, pathoseal bag and a returns envelope. Clear and concise instructions are included within the kit as well as a consent form for the donor to complete. Results when received at the lab are reported within 3-4 working days – this may be longer due to significant demand.
An example of our result reporting for the S42 test kit can be seen below.
