Successful self-test with Viking football club
Viking football club also chooses this time to use NordicDx's COVID 19 RT-PCR self-test in relation to travel to the United States. Players and managers taking part in the trip took samples themselves at the Viking stadium. After sampling, the samples were delivered to NordicDx.
Prøvene ble analyserte ved laboratoriet vårt på Ullandhaug litt over en time etter prøvetakingen fant sted, og resultatene ble registrert i Helsenorge systemet.
The properties of two of our PCR tests, SAVD+ and ICED, enable "self-testing" at companies, sports teams or institutions, which can quickly contribute to control and a good overview of the infection situation.
Both tests have a built-in self-check. In the event of an outbreak of infection, self-swabbing is carried out locally, and the samples are sent to us. The samples are analyzed at our laboratory, and the result will be available just over an hour after we have received them. NordicDx will provide the necessary training in advance. NordicDx can offer companies, sports teams and institutions free deployment of sampling sets.
Health care and fit-to-fly
All our tests are CE-IVD approved, and NordicDx is approved for testing and reporting in the Health Care system (MSIS).
We also issue English fit-to-fly travel certificates for those who wish to do so.
Halvard Øen Grova, physical trainer and medical manager at Viking;
"Viking football club sees great advantages in players being able to carry out PCR sampling themselves, have the test analyzed at NordicDx and receive the result within an hour. In this way, we can quickly and safely detect any infection in the squad at an early stage. Because the RT-PCR tests are very sensitive and detect even very small amounts of virus, we will be able to quickly take the necessary measures to prevent the spread of infection in the team."
NordicDx thanks you again for your trust and wishes Viking players and managers a good and safe journey.
