Heathrow has trialled three rapid point of care testing solutions on colleagues to understand how these tests might be quickly conducted outside of a laboratory.
Findings are being shared with Government as it considers how testing could be used to get aviation off the ground, whilst protecting public health.
In colleague testing trials, Heathrow worked with:
- I-Abra is working with the airport to trial their Virolens testing device to see whether its machine learning holographic microscope, backed by Dell/Intel and partnered with TT Electronics plc for design and manufacturing, can quickly (in under 30 seconds) and accurately identify whether a person is carrying the disease through a self-administered test.
TT Electronics plc (LON:TTG) is a provider of engineered electronics applications for performance-critical applications. The Company works with customers in the industrial, medical, aerospace and defence, and transportation sectors.
