Circular 1 Health COVID-19 Testing
LampWorX is a Circular1 Health ultra-high integrity testing process that offers the utmost certainty of accurate results, with 100% sensitivity and 99.995% specificity, and has allowed mission critical workforces including Sellafield Ltd, BAE Systems, EDF Energy, to continue to operate.
Circular1 Health developed and implemented a unique SARS-CoV-2 testing algorithm that uses two different viral genome detection methods (LAMP and CE-marked PCR) operating in series; designed to offer rapid testing with a very high sensitivity and crucially a reduction in the false positive rate to a level below 1 in 20,000 tests conducted. We always conduct a Quality Control process to verify accuracy of results, and now provide sequencing of a number of positives, to identify any possible new variants.
ProteinWorX is our low prevalence virus protein antigen test, supported in the laboratory by PCR confirmation and internal Quality Control to provide the highest possible accuracy (lowest false positive rate in the industry) – developed for low incidence/prevalence situations.
ProteinWorX is based on viral antigen testing designed to be available as a complement to the existing LampWorX genomic testing service. This lab-based, lateral flow equivalent ensures enhanced accuracy as part of our recommend in-series approach, where is it followed by confirmatory LAMP/PCR, a Quality Control process to verify accuracy of results, and sequencing of a number of positives, to identify any possible new variants.
An insight into our LAMP Process, PCR immediately follows (for QC and positive samples).
COVID-19 (Viral genome) Testing – whether you currently have the virus
Circular 1 Health viral genome testing for SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 has been based on a highly innovative approach working with our diagnostic test suppliers to provide superior testing capability as part of our rapid response service. We also have the addition of high throughput RT-PCR testing capacity alongside our rapid LAMP technology.
The CE-marked PCR test kit is sourced from a UK manufacturer and is cleared for use by Public Health England. The LAMP and PCR testing technology is installed in the Circular 1 Health testing laboratories in Manchester, Barrow-in-Furness, Guildford as well as in our mobile laboratories around the UK. This allows us the opportunity to offer a suite of proprietary testing solutions in a custom-designed laboratory.
Circular1 Health as a health and medical solutions supplier provides many sectors with proven products and services across a range of disciplines. Based in the UK, covering the EU we are committed to providing health and well-being solutions for your employees, and safe working environments for business. Thus ensuring your workforce and their families, your customers and your brand reputation have the best possible chance of continued success.
