WHY TEST

Knowledge is power:

Fusion’s COVID-19 testing programme helps you gain insight into the current symptoms & antibody status of your people (i.e. where they are within the COVID-19 cycle.)

Greater insight leads to better decision making:

…and helps determine the safest strategy for supporting your people back to the ‘New’ normal.

HOW TO TEST

There are multiple types of tests on the market and understanding which test to deploy will depend on the outcomes required. We only use or recommend fully certified, and CE approved, testing kits and PPE.

Antibody testing:

We help advise on the most effective solution for you. E.G. If an organisation is looking for a fast, cost-effective approach to understand antibody status then an onsite rapid Antibody test is preferable, where a result is available in 15 mins. Our tests are 99.8% accurate in the detection of IgG.

While the tests can be straight forward, the implementation of a testing programme is more complex than just ordering test kits. There are multiple variables that need to be taken into account:

Antigen testing:

The Coronavirus Ag Rapid Test Cassette (Swab) is an in vitro immunochromatographic assay for the qualitative detection of nucleocapsid protein antigen from SARS-CoV-2 in direct nasopharyngeal (NP) swab specimens directly from individuals who are suspected of COVID-19 within the first ten days of symptom onset

CE marked

Relative Sensitivity: 96. 72 % (95%CI*: 88. 65 %-99. 60 %)

Relative Specificity: 99.22 % (95%CI*: 97.21 %-99. 91%)

Accuracy: 98. 74 (95%CI*: 96.80%-99. 66%)

*Confidence Intervals

Symptomatic vs. Asymptomatic
Antigen detection
IgM Anti-body detection – (infection present and infectious)
IgG Anti-body detection – (subject has had the infection)
Timeframe – presentation and detection of both symptoms and antibodies

Fusion helps organisations navigate these variables and can create a robust testing programme tailored to your organisation’s requirements.

TESTING FOR BUSINESS

  • For businesses, a continual testing programme is required, so that the results can be regularly monitored and updated, in order that retesting can be conducted where required. This gives an accurate insight into the health and wellbeing of the workforce at any given time.
  • Data is tracked through the ‘Fit for work’ digital application (App), or a company’s HR team. Data will help drive safe working practices and procedures, in order for businesses to operate as safely as possible.
  • E.G: an employee who has not been infected should not be placed in an environment where social distancing guidelines cannot be adhered to (e.g. an enclosed space).

TESTING FOR TRAVEL

  • With the travel industry reopening, major operations (e.g. airports) clear protocols and procedures are needed to ensure the safest possible journey for their customers. This needs to be achieved while offering the best travel experience possible.
  • Stopping the further spread of the virus is another key objective, which can be tracked through the ‘Fit for Travel’ App.
  • For example: Data about each traveller will be visible – whether or not they are fit to travel, as well as their geographical location; allowing travel industry players  to build a picture of any possible COVID hotspots, as and when they occur. Travellers will also be provided with a fit for travel certificate. 

TESTING FOR SPORT

  • With sporting events and fixtures resuming, ensuring the health and safety of both individuals and teams, as well as management and support staff, is critical.
  • Closely monitoring symptoms by using the ‘Fit for Sport’ App will give peace of mind that athletes and players are fit, healthy, and ready to play. 
  • For example; Each team member’s status will be visible. This data will help with key decision-making about team selection and travel, as well as helping to reduce infection-spread and the need for isolation.
