COVID-19 SCREENING SERVICE LAUNCHED AT MANCHESTER ARNDALE
The site will have a weekly capacity of over 12,000 tests
Cignpost ExpressTest (a division of Cignpost Diagnostics Ltd) has today opened a new Covid-19 screening service at Manchester Arndale.
Situated in central Manchester, the new facility will be offering a walk-in service with a capacity of 12,096 tests a week. It will be particularly useful for members of the public who are symptomless and so do not qualify for NHS emergency testing but require a negative result either to visit family members, or to fly abroad to green destination.
The tests on offer are priced at £80 per person for travel passengers and £99 per person for the test-only service. ExpressTest is delivered using the latest gold standard PCR equipment that is fully CE-IVD certified and manufactured to the highest possible standards, and tests are carried out by trained Screening Practitioners.
The new facility at Manchester Arndale is part of an ongoing expansion of Cignpost ExpressTest’s services. As well as being a selected provider of discounted COVID-19 testing to British Airways, the company also provides gold-standard PCR tests at Gatwick, Heathrow and Birmingham Airports, as well as at Brent Cross Shopping Centre.
Christian Corney, CEO of Cignpost ExpressTest said:
“At Cignpost ExpressTest, we are passionate about providing customers with the very best testing experience as restrictions begin to ease, travel recommences and events resume. The new facility at Manchester Arndale is situated right in the city centre, so will be easily accessible to the local community and we will ensure the gold standard PCR testing demand is met.”
