‘Lab in motion’ is a community testing pilot for Coronavirus (COVID-19) being led by Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (HHFT). This new testing method involves a technology that gives the results in 20 minutes. Supported by the Department of Health and Social Care via the Cabinet Office, this test is proven to be 100% specific.
It would also help to identify potential outbreaks allowing for rapid quarantining and contact tracing to occur, helping to limit the spread of this highly infectious disease.
The trial is taking place in care homes and GPs around Hampshire.
