Ireland's fastest Covid test available at Mayo airport
IRISH Covid-19 testing and healthcare company, RocDoc, has today agreed a strategic partnership with laboratory testing company Eurofins Biomnis, which will see the turnaround for RocDoc’s Fast Track RT PCR Covid-19 test results drop to 12 hours. This will position RocDoc as providing the fastest mass testing RT PCR tests available in Ireland.
RocDoc’s RT PCR and antibody tests at Dublin, Cork, Shannon and Ireland West airports will be processed on-site by Eurofins Biomnis.
The agreement sees RocDoc’s laboratory capacity transfer to Eurofins Biomnis. Eurofins Biomnis is part of the Eurofins Group, a major global leader in testing and laboratory services. The Eurofins Group has built global capacity to facilitate 20 million Covid-19 related tests monthly and has established widespread PCR testing capabilities, carrying out over 24 million tests in its own laboratories across the world.
RocDoc can now offer a Fast Track RT PCR test that can be turned around in 12 hours as Eurofins Biomnis is able to introduce a new, highly advanced ‘extraction free’ RT PCR technology, which is quicker than normal PCR tests.
RocDoc’s Standard RT PCR test results will also now be turned around within 24 hours at a much lower cost to the customer.
Commenting on the partnership deal, RocDoc chief executive David Rock said: “The purpose of our agreement with Eurofins Biomnis is to provide a faster service at a lower cost to the customer. Our 12-hour turnaround time for our RT PCR tests is the fastest mass testing available in Ireland, and it will also be the best value RT PCR tests in Ireland.”
