Keep your workforce and workplace safe
How do you know if COVID-19 is present in your workplace? You can use Campden BRI’s Environmental and Surface Swab Testing
for COVID-19 to detect the presence of the virus.
The swabs can be used on any surfaces with a focus on high touch points where the risk is greatest. If the swabs yield a
negative result, you can be confident that your workplace is clear of COVID-19 because your processes and cleaning regimes are effective.
If the swab test yields a positive result, this confirms that the infectious virus was on the surface sampled indicating
that someone with COVID-19 was in that area.
To protect your workforce – and your business - you could elect to test your workforce,
to detect pre-symptomatic and asymptomatic workers and you can put more rigorous measures in place
such as increasing frequency of cleaning or a deep clean.
How does it work? We provide simple swab kits. You swab key high touch areas or others you
consider to be high risk for SARS-CoV-2 exposure. You return used swabs to us for analysis.
How long does it take? Results in 48-72 hrs from receipt of swabs.
What will my results mean? The results show whether COVID-19 virus or its RNA was present
on the swabbed surfaces at the time of the test. If the result is positive, you can put mitigation strategies in place. Campden BRI are here to
help you if you wish to test your workforce to isolate the source of the virus or
challenge test your cleaning regimes. Our expert hygiene team can review
your cleaning operations and provide advice on how to minimise the risks to your business and your staff. You can read their advice about deep
