If you’d like to carry out Covid testing in your school, college or university, AlphaBiolabs can help. We are able to provide a comprehensive Covid testing programme tailored to your school’s exact requirements.

What type of Covid testing in schools do we offer?

As an accredited UK laboratory, we can provide a range of Covid tests for your school staff and students. These include:

Rapid Antigen testing

This is one of the world’s first rapid screening tests for identifying Covid-19 from 14 days after initial exposure to the virus, and/or after the onset of symptoms. No laboratory testing is needed – results are available in just 15-30 minutes via the portable immunoassay device.

PCR testing

A PCR swab test can be taken individually, or overseen by a school nurse or other health professional. Samples will be sent to our laboratory, where they will be tested using the latest automated RT-PCR extraction and amplification methods. Our trained scientists will analyse your staff and students’ samples, providing you with same-day results if required.

PCR testing for international travel

If your school has international students or boarders, we can offer a Covid testing service for international travel. This includes the appropriate pre-departure and UK arrival tests, along with Fit to Fly certificates if required.

The benefits of Covid testing in schools

Implementing a Covid testing programme in your school can help to reduce health risks and keep your staff and students safer.

Regular Covid testing in your school will help to identify and isolate any asymptomatic carriers, and might help to reduce absenteeism due to self-isolation. It will also increase the confidence of your staff, your students, and their families.
