COVID-19 SURFACE HYGIENE TESTING

Intertek has launched a new testing service to identify if COVID-19 is present on surfaces in your premises. Environmental monitoring of key areas such as door handles, PIN pads, desks, computers, phones, etc, can provide a proactive approach to reducing the risk of spreading the virus and provide reassurance to your colleagues and customers.

The testing is relevant for any type of facility, including restaurants, shops, factories, offices, transportation and schools.

Surface hygiene testing can be performed by Intertek experts at customer sites by taking swabs of specific surface areas, or through customers pre-ordering these and following instructions to take the swabs themselves.

Swabs are transported to the Intertek laboratory where tests are carried out using a method of procedure called PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction).

By testing environmental surfaces in this way, facilities can monitor the effectiveness of their hygiene protocols and plan management action such as isolating areas to allow further cleaning.
