COVID Testing is currently playing a vital role in keeping businesses safe, open and operating. As many companies have begun a staggered return-to-office approach for employees, Precision Health is now providing onsite private COVID testing for businesses.
Given the potential workplace risk of a single undiagnosed COVID case, Precision Health can provide assurance and support if your business is:
Preparing employees for returning to the office
High capacity of staff onsite at one given time, for example, construction sites
Have a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 in the workplace
If so, corporate testing may suit your needs. Contact us today for more information regarding our corporate services.

Types of COVID-19 Tests
PCR Test (Polymerase Chain Reaction)
Taken to be the gold standard for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that cause COVID-19), the PCR test is taken as a nasal or nasopharyngeal swab. The test is very sensitive. The downside is that the test can sometimes detect small amounts of viral particles after you have recovered form COVID-19.
The antigen test detects viral particles by using antibodies dissolved in a strip called a Lateral Flow Assay, similar to a pregnancy test in form. The test is not as sensitive as a PCR test but is useful for detecting when a person is in the most infectious stages of COVID-19. The main advantage is that is can be processed in 15-minutes, without expensive technology.
During and after COVID-19 infection, your body makes neutralising antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. These antibodies can be detected in a blood sample either in a lab on a lateral flow assay. The test theoretically shows immunity against COVID-19. The disadvantage is that the levels of antibody may drop some weeks after COVID-19 infection but the immunity remains as undetectable memory cells.
