Katalyst Laboratories, as a registered provider of COVID-19 tests, provides testing services on-site at the workplace as part of our clients’ corporate occupational health provision. In addition, we support testing at travel hubs, such as ports and airports, with our rapid point-of-care tests.
We have developed our own secure, streamlined, and paperless testing work-flow. This workflow is based around the QR codes on our sample collection packs, utilising the Yoti digital identity app. Our workflow is designed with data privacy and data security in mind, conforming to GDPR. Where our clients wish to provide COVID-19 tests to their customers, we also offer online booking and payment systems to further streamline the process.
The PCR test we operate utilises an anterior nasal swab as a sample. The test has passed a technical evaluation by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) which deternined the sensitivty as 91.3%, specificity as 99.0% and the limit of detection as 960c/ml.
Katalyst Laboratories is based at our Testing Hub in Soho Square, London, where we also provide COVID-19 test processing services for London-based businesses and private healthcare providers.
Katalyst Laboratories is also an authorised distributor for some of the world’s leading test manufacturers from the UK, Europe, and China. We currently distribute RT-PCR (including rapid point-of-care PCR tests), lateral flow, and antibody tests.
We are always looking for new and innovative testing solutions that make rapid testing more precise and cost-effective. Our laboratory team perform our own evaluations and provide training on all tests we distribute. This enables us to effectively support our customers, allowing quick and cost-effective adoption of our tests.
