RocDoc Health Check makes Covid-19 testing available to organisations and individuals

RocDoc Health Check, an Irish company, is delighted to make Covid-19 testing available to organisations and individuals, to help ensure a safe work environment and help stop the spread of Covid 19, in the workplace and in the community.

A dedicated Covid-19 test lab has been established in the RocDoc Medical Clinic, in Ashbourne Co. Meath, for individual or bulk tests, by appointment. Our lab is operated by medical and lab professionals, who assess each patient and perform Covid testing as necessary. This service uses Irish company HiberGene’s clinically validated CE marked Covid-19 test, to accurately detect the virus from patient nose and throat swabs.

Should our medical professionals suspect that a patient has been infected with Covid-19, they are then tested, using the HiberGene CE marked Covid-19 test, in the dedicated lab.

RocDoc Health Check has also developed a mobile Covid-19 testing station, again using the HiberGene Covid-19 test, which can be deployed to any organisation nationally, providing bulk testing on site.

The HiberGene Covid-19 test gives positive results in less than 30 minutes and negative results in less than 1 hour to quickly diagnose positive cases, ensuring a swift return to a safe working environment or fast positive result reporting for patient treatment, isolation and contact tracing.

During winter months, the HiberGene platform allows us to test for an active Flu or Covid infection at the same time, reducing the time and number of tests required to give a patient a complete and accurate diagnosis.

RocDoc Health Check is a modern healthcare facility, providing a GP service and Minor Emergency Department. Our healthcare professionals focus on patient care and health promotion and have extensive experience in both pre-hospital and in-hospital medical care. Proficient in infection prevention and control, our patients are centre of what we do and we excel in customer service.

HiberGene Diagnostics is a Dublin-based, private Irish company, that develops, manufactures and markets molecular diagnostic tests for human infectious diseases, using the LAMP (Loop Mediated Isothermal Amplification) technology. The new COVID-19 test expands the company’s product range to 13 tests.

David Rock, CEO RocDoc Health Care said

We are delighted to be working with another innovative Irish Company to help keep our country safe from Covid-19 and open for business. It is imperative to diagnose Covid quickly to reduce the spread of the virus. We are encouraged by the level of testing and interest in our service to date and are proud to be playing our part with HiberGene.

Seamus Gorman, CEO of Hibergene, said

RocDoc’s static Laboratory solution and its mobile Laboratory solution using Hibergene’s CE marked Covid test is a perfect partnership to quickly and simply test people. RocDoc can now travel to business locations to test staff to ensure a rapid return to work. This is a great example of two Irish companies working together to provide fast accurate testing to the Irish people and businesses in response to the Covid crisis.
