Fortress Tests help things return to "Normal"
As more and more people seek to return to ‘normal life’ Fortress tests will be invaluable to the success of helping schools and university’s remain open, corporate businesses returning to the office, health workers avoiding quarantine, increased protection in our care homes and future airport control.
Fortress antibody test has been hugely responsible for the success of the track and trace study being carried out across England. Data of over 200k participants shows 97% successfully completed their test following the guides and up to 94% had a valid result. This data is testament to fortress being the preferred test of choice and why.

Currently, the most sensitive method for testing for COVID-19 is through a laboratory technique called polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Fortress Diagnostics have developed PCR tests, with and without RNA extraction, which is a time-consuming and costly step. Without would allow a quicker manufacturing time and a more cost-effective product to meet the global demand for testing.
