Identify symptomatic cases to ‘test and return’ or manage isolation to ensure staffing levels can be maintained

Ensuring education continues and does so safely is extremely important for our nations future. Regular testing to create safe environments is of paramount importance to achieve this.

Testing support for teachers, pupils and households for an all round safe learning environment and extended home life

We live connected lives where we interact with friends, colleagues and family. By creating technology capable of mimicking the behaviour of the virus, by connecting those around us, we can keep them safe,

Matt Darwin – CIO, Synoptic

Rapid risk mitigation for students and teachers without compromising personal security or privacy

We are all affected by the pandemic in one way or another. We can all help each other overcome the pandemic together. Reactivate will enable us to connect and care to overcome the array of challenges we all face.

Glen Huxley – CTO, Synoptic

Testing options to cover low cost COVID-19 screening, antibody detection tests and lab based PCR tests to verify current infections

Rapid Antigen Tests

Antibody Tests

PCR Swab Tests

We work with a range of partners in the COVID-19 testing sector, from PHE Certified labs across the UK to sourcing experts who supply certified tests to both the public and private sector. Tests provisioned by our partners are sourced and delivered specifically outside of the Government supply chain to avoid disruption to national efforts, whilst enhancing capacity across the commercial sector.

Frequently asked questions

How do users install the app?2020-10-26T18:59:55+00:00

Every member of your organisation will be sent a text with a link via which you can download the app on your phone. If you have more than one phone, install the app on the one you use most often and carry this with you at all times.

A child or staff member has tested positive. What should the school tell parents?2020-10-26T19:00:05+00:00

Schools have no obligation to inform parents of a positive case in the school. However, in the interests of open communication, schools may wish to inform parents when there is a case, being careful to maintain confidentiality and not give information that may identify the individual concerned.

Parents can be reassured that people who are not identified as close contacts are at no more risk than the general public. Everyone should be following the public health guidance to wash your hands, keep your distance and stay at home if you have a fever, new continuous cough or loss of, or change to, normal sense of smell or taste.

What is a close contact of a confirmed case of COVID-19?2020-11-02T13:27:27+00:00

A person who has been close to a confirmed case from two days before the person was symptomatic to 10 days after the onset of symptoms and:

  • lives in the same household OR
  • has travelled in a car with the case OR
  • has been within 2 metres of a case for more than 15 minutes OR
  • has been within 1 metre of a case and had face-to-face contact including:
    • being coughed on
    • having a face-to-face conversation
    • having skin-to-skin physical contact
A child or staff member from the school has had a COVID-19 test. What does the school need to do?2020-10-26T19:00:23+00:00
  • The individual will receive their result via the app with the advice that they need to isolate for at least 10 days.
  • The user will then be able to choose which of their household and non-school community close contacts they need to advise.
  • The school’s management will then need to notify close contacts that may have been affected.
How will everyone know when their next test is?2020-11-02T13:19:22+00:00

Scheduled weekly testing within the workplace/school will be visible within the app detailing the date, time and location it will be taking place

How do you obtain everyone’s contact data?2020-11-02T13:10:54+00:00

Reactivate uses advanced API integration technology that securely associates the details that are naturally shared between employer and employee e.g. phone number, address, age etc

How effective/accurate is the proposed testing?2020-11-23T20:34:03+00:00

Tests sourced to support our testing programmes have to satisfy rigorous efficacy/ accuracy/ reliability standards.

PCR tests are considered the gold standard of testing and typically offer the highest levels of sensitivity/specificity (up to 99.9+% infection detection accuracy at 6 days viral ‘load’. The Circular1 Health testing process involving both LAMP and PCR in series is currently operating at 99.995% specificity and 100% sensitivity.

Antigen tests recommended to support Pillar 5 testing must meet minimum efficacy/accuracy standards, defined as 98% specificity/90% sensitivity.  For example, a self-contained, sample collection device using lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay administered via nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal (nose and throat) samples, and one of the world’s first rapid antigen tests, offers 98.7% specificity/sensitivity in infection detection.  This test delivers results in just 15 minutes, on the spot, via a portable immunoassay device.

Antibody tests – The Virtus quantitative antibody test is the best validated and most sensitive commercially available antibody test. It is the only laboratory antibody test registered at the MHRA for use via home/work/school finger prick blood sampling. All other UK testing labs require venous blood drawn by a nurse/phlebotomist. The Virtus test is unique as the only test that has been validated in community Covid cases (as opposed to severe hospitalised cases). The Virtus test sensitivity, when compared to the Abbott test, was 87% vs 68% respectively and when compared to the Roche test 91% vs 69%. Quantitative testing permits the measurement of antibody levels over time to monitor change. The Virtus test results correlate very closely with neutralising (blocking the virus from entering and infecting cells) antibody levels, so it is highly likely that people with a positive Virtus antibody test are protected against getting Covid. Such people will not need regular swab testing to identify asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection and silent spreaders, until such time as they have become antibody negative.

How are tests deployed?2020-10-26T19:01:36+00:00

Tests may be deployed at home and in the workplace. 

Quantitative antibody tests are performed using a testing kit on finger-prick blood samples taken at home or at work. Each kit contains a pre-paid return envelope for delivery to the lab within 24hrs. Results are returned typically next day via the App.

LAMP/PCR tests will be performed on nasal /throat swabs which can be despatched to individuals by post or stored in bulk onsite to administer (as each programme determines).  PCR samples will be despatched by courier/post to prescribed laboratories for analysis and result notification within prescribed turnaround times (typically 24 hours).

If someone is tested positive does the testing facility report to the authorities to start the formal follow-up?2020-10-26T19:04:02+00:00

We have established a procedure to report all positives to Public Health England who receive full details of the individuals concerned.

Who collects the sample for the PCR test?2020-10-27T14:26:01+00:00

Self-collected and/or collected by a medical professional
