Corona mass testing

New corona testing: LAMP-Seq

Information: Due to a change in the staffing situation, Wednesday testing will unfortunately have to be cancelled until further notice. We are working on a solution and hope to be back soon!

Scientists at the UKB have successfully developed a new corona test. The technology of this test offers the possibility of analyzing many swabs simultaneously and thus significantly increasing the number of people tested. The team of scientists is currently working on making the already fully validated test procedure mass-compatible, so that the new test can be used as soon as possible for comprehensive corona screening, e.g. in schools, daycare centers, retirement homes or companies. With a scientific study within the UKB, the scientists now want to finally check and optimize the workflows as well as the logistics for high numbers of smears.

The UKB Board of Directors and the scientists invite all UKB employees to be tested voluntarily and regularly for the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus free of charge as part of the study. On this homepage you will find extensive information and the possibility to register directly for the corona test.

Who can get tested? All employees of the UKB and its subsidiaries are welcome to participate in the study and testing (please bring proof of employment to the test date).

Opening hours: Mon, Tue and Thu from 7:30 am to 12:10 pm and Wed from 7:30 am to 11:40 pm. On selected days, opening hours may vary due to increased field operations.

How often can I get tested? We kindly invite you to get tested regularly (e.g. once a week, or even more frequently if needed) as part of our study. However, you decide for yourself, regular testing is not a prerequisite for participation in the study.

Can I still get tested after I have been vaccinated? People who have already been vaccinated are also welcome to get tested by us!

How long does the testing take? Usually there is almost no waiting time, the smear itself takes less than 2 minutes.

Will you be charged for the testing? No, the testing is completely free of charge for you.
