Testing 

 

ChronomicsChronomics

www.chronomics.com
Rupert Channing: +44 (0)7787 500500

Chronomics was founded and is run by scientists from the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge and UCL that have published extensively in methods for the interrogation of biological systems - such as next generation sequencing approaches for the detection of RNA and DNA, single cell methods with very limited input materials, nanoporemetagenomics approaches, viral polymerase detection methods and more.

Chronomics has developed and validated it’s SARS-COV-2 test off of the base CDC-approved, FDA EUA approved RT-PCR test for COVID-19. The Chronomics IVD test is CE marked and UK MHRA registered.  The test is also a notified test at the FDA, and the company expects to receive their FDA EUA authorisation during the course of July 2020.

Chronomics has been working extensively with the UK government at Ministerial and Secretary of State level in DHSC (Department of Health and Social Care) as well as DCMS (Department for Culture Media and Sport), as it works with PHE (Public Health England) to support the UK government with its overall strategy for UK testing, and is in advanced discussions with respect to deploying this test through the NHS.

The Chronomics test has shown to  be at least as sensitive as measured against the Gold Standard for SARS-COV-2 virus detection. The test was able to detect the virus as low as 1 copy per micro-litre. The Chronomics test has been deliberately designed such that it can be run on most if not all lab RNA extraction robotics as well as all major manufacturers of PCR machines.

A Number of Significant Benefits Have Been Identified 

1. Safety. The Saliva test is inherently safer to administer than the Nasal Pharyngeal Swab test. It is self-administered – there is no requirement for any clinical / medical assistance to conduct test. This eliminates the risk of contamination of a healthcare professional in the process of sample provision.

2.The test by its very nature is non-invasive. It is significantly less unpleasant to deploy – particularly as part of a frequent testing strategy. Using NPS testing with significant regularity expose the patient to the risk of potential damage/injury to nasal tissues as a result of the invasive nature of the swab. 

3. The saliva test eliminates the need to provide Healthcare professionals as well as supporting PPE equipment thus significantly reducing the total cost per test of specimen acquisition.

4. The Saliva specimen is stable in the tube for 7 days up to 37 Degrees.

5. The Chronomics Test has been designed to be able to be processed on three platforms enabling High Throughput processing and significantly scaled up test processing capability.

Testing and Tracking

Cost price solution for schools and colleges

Group Rate Covid Tests

Taylor Education has partnered with several high profile professional UK testing laboratories to negotiate a group rate for UK schools and colleges. The labs have agreed to make the student and staff of education establishments a testing priority and fast-track accurate test results for every test within 24-48 hours. They have also agreed to provide the tests at cost price. This means schools and colleges have access to world-class testing at cost price. In comparison, the NHS testing regime is far slower and is only available for those exhibiting symptoms or in certain groups. This will give schools access to preventative testing.

The labs are all already under contract to provide testing for Public Health England and will carry out testing for you at the same level of accreditation, only faster.

This service is provided with advice and protocols which have been developed by Taylor Education in association with several of the largest UK independent schools which are determined that Michaelmas Term 2020 will be business as usual. It has saved them the inconvenience of paying for and providing quarantine accommodation on top of the inevitable testing that would be needed anyway.

Wearable Track and Trace App

Taylor Education has partnered with a leading tech developer to create wearable track and trace apps, which can be used in conjuction with the testing protocols to give schools optimal reassurance that outbreaks can be immediately contained. All students and staff wear the “fit-bit” style wrist-bands and the school is alerted immediately a positive test occurs of everyone who has been in proximity of the Covid-19 carrier. Action can then be taken immediately to isolate and further test those at risk.

This is the only way to ensure school business can continue usual. The price for this water-resistant wearable app is a very low monthly tariff, and broken wristbands will be replaced immediately free of charge.

Taylor Education is happy to arrange for your school to have access to these unique packages and will help familiarise you with the protocols which other schools have already set in place. Tests can be administered in country of origin and shipped for immediate testing, so pre-departure screening is now also possible. The wearable app is available from the end of July.
