With students returning to school and workplaces trying to return to some sense of normality, BioSure and Vital Signs Solutions are proud to announce their complete, cost-effective COVID-19 digital testing solution, to all employers of any size that provides on-site testing, education and full reporting, ensuring workplace COVID safety measures are met and employers are able to evidence their compliance with the current guidelines.
BioSure has a long history of providing testing solutions for infectious diseases and notably launched the first CE Marked HIV self-test in the UK in 2015. This is now available to consumers across four continents and with 5 years of robust data behind their world-first product this has justifiably positioned BioSure to be global experts in self-testing and screening.
To deliver their comprehensive workplace solution, which involves testing with a finger prick sample of blood and getting your result while you wait, BioSure have partnered exclusively with Vital Signs Solutions, owners of the PocDoc® digital platform to build the BioSure powered by PocDoc app.
The app acts as a seamless companion and supports the innovative testing that BioSure is known for. BioSure and Vital Signs Solutions have already begun working with companies within key “get Britain back to work” sectors including gyms, restaurants and co-working spaces.
99% of people who have taken part so far have said the screenings were “very easy” with CEO Shaun Stafford of City Athletic saying:
“From a testing and results basis, it was super easy and straight forward, quick and hassle free, a perfect set-up” and Eve Bugler, CEO of the BabaBoom chain of restaurants saying:
“The testing process was simple, and the results empowered us to all understand more about our health. Using BioSure’s full workplace solution with the PocDoc app was a valuable experience for all of our multinational team.”
The complete solution offers tests that detect 3 different types of antibodies to COVID-19, so they can actually identify those individuals who currently have COVID-19 as well as those who have previously had the virus. This makes the test comparable with antigen swab tests that are available, but with the added advantage of knowing who has had historical infection. All testing is conducted on-site by a registered healthcare professional and offer accurate results in just 10 minutes.
The BioSure by PocDoc app’s unique security platform allows each test result to be connected to a specific individual without needing their personal data, which provides full traceability without breaching individual privacy.
The app can then generate aggregated, full working reports containing critical data points that can be used to assess workforce health and COVID safety, across multiple sites and across extended periods of time if required. Being able to build this picture allows employers to plan more efficiently and make more informed choices for their teams, especially as the usual autumn cold and flu season approaches. The app can also recommend key next steps in terms of continued workforce testing and protection to support health and safety due diligence.
CEO of BioSure, Brigette Bard – “Our BioSure workplace testing solution offers employers a comprehensive and cost-effective package, where you get results in real time so immediate, informed decisions can be made.
