Katalyst Laboratories has experience in delivering and supporting testing solutions to airports across the UK and within Europe. This includes Heathrow Airport, London City Airport, Manchester Airport, East Midlands Airport, and Prague Airport. We understand that to enable travel to restart, the industry needs fast and cost-effective point-of-care testing. Katalyst Laboratories can provide a range of COVID-19 tests from world-leading manufacturers, including rapid RT-PCR, RT-LAMP, lateral flow, and antibody tests. At transport hubs, we recommend the use of our best-in-class rapid RT-PCR test.
Benefits to travel hub operators when using our recommended rapid RT-PCR test:
- Rapid processing. Up to 30 tests can be processed in 60 mins per PCR machine.
- RT-PCR Test. RT-PCR tests are a requirement for entry to most travel destinations.
- Complies with WHO guidelines. RT-PCR is recommended by the WHO as the most effective and reliable way to detect the presence of SARS-CoV-2.
- No laboratory required. The rapid RT-PCR test we recommend uses patented technologies that do not require RNA extraction, hence no laboratory is required.
- Weekly monitoring of different virus strains. The rapid RT-PCR test we recommend is evaluated weekly to make sure it can identify all known variants of the virus.
- Approved for use by the NHS. The rapid RT-PCR test we recommend for travel hubs is currently in use with the NHS as a rapid point-of-care test.
- Secure delivery of results. The rapid RT-PCR test comes pre-integrated with the award-winning Yoti digital identity app. Yoti enables test results to be handled according to GDPR and sent securely to people’s phones.
- Paper-free workflow. Yoti provides ultra-secure test processing software that manages the testing process from swab all the way through to delivered result.
- Complete training provided. Katalyst Laboratories provides a training programme to train in-house or out-sourced testing staff to conduct the tests at the ferry port or airport terminal.
