TAG, in partnership with Salutaris, are thrilled to announce that our testing Partner Randox Health have been added to the list of Private Providers for Coronavirus testing for test to release and general testing by the UK department for Health and Social care.
The news coincides with the decision from Randox Health to base their first mobile laboratory with TAG and Salutaris at John Lennon Airport, reinforcing the ongoing commitment to the Liverpool City Region from Randox.
The Mobile facility offers the ability to get a fit to fly or test to release certificate within 1 – 3 hours of taking the PCR test, or passengers can opt for the standard service, with results returned within 48 hours.
What is test to release?
The Test to Release for International Travel scheme is for people who need to self-isolate on arrival in England. Under the scheme, you can choose to pay for a private COVID-19 test. If the result is negative, you can stop self-isolating.
The earliest you can take a test is five full days after you have departed a destination for England not on the travel corridor list.
What is the Randox Mobile Laboratory?
Randox have commissioned a fully-accredited mobile laboratory that can be deployed at any location to perform mobile PCR testing for coronavirus.
The mobile lab is fully self-contained and accredited, with the capacity to process up to 1,000 tests daily.
This means that a fit to fly or test to release certificate that would take up to 48 hours with our standard process will take as little as 1 hour and no longer than 3 hours to deliver a certificate back to a customer.
The express 1-3 hour testing service is available now for £175 per test, while the 48-hour service costs £110 per test.
