Collinson and Randox Launch Rapid Airport PCR Travel Testing

Collinson has today announced its partnership with biotech company, Randox, to offer rapid PCR testing.

The ground-breaking new testing offering, which is already available at Collinson’s new park and test facility near Heathrow Airport, uses advanced on-site Randox technology to process RT-PCR – the gold standard of Covid-19 virus testing – in under three hours.

It means passengers who require a negative PCR result to fly can, for the first time, book to take the test on the day of departure and have their result in time for check-in, rather than needing to arrange for a test days in advance.

Today’s announcement from Collinson and Randox will make the PCR testing process far more seamless for passengers, enabling them to book to take their test as part of the journey to the airport. In the next few weeks, the new technology will also be launched at Collinson’s drive-through facility near Gatwick.

This new offering means that passengers with bookings can take a rapid PCR test the day they travel. As processing is handled on site rather than couriered to a lab; it is quicker while being just as reliable. While awaiting their test result, passengers can proceed to the airport terminal and enjoy a coffee, before going to check-in.
