Circular1 Health COVID-19 Testing Laboratories

Increasing the speed and sensitivity using the most effective testing method for COVID-19.


Testing Laboratory Service For SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19

Circular 1 Health testing capacity for SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 is based on a highly innovative approach working with our diagnostic test suppliers to provide superior testing capability.  Alongside the rapid LAMP (loop-mediated isothermal amplification) technology to eliminate negatives, we incorporate PCR testing to act as a reference assay for positives.

This ensures our testing provides a specificity of 99.995% and a sensitivity of 100%. The CE-marked PCR test kit we employ is approved by MHRA and is used by Public Health England and the NHS.

The LAMP and PCR testing technology is installed in the Circular 1 Health testing laboratories in Guildford, Barrow-in-Furness and Manchester 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.

Our onsite (mobile) Laboratories are able to provide a “Fast-Track” service with results from 90 minutes.
