COVID-19 & INFLUENZA
Addressing COVID-19 and influenza challenges,
through fast, accurate and reliable testing
THE STORY BEHIND THE INITIATIVE
First in Japan
In April 2020, Genesis Healthcare was the first commercial testing facility to support large scale COVID-19 testing in Japan.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Genesis Healthcare has provided extensive BCP (Business Continuity Planning) support and testing to multiple government, energy, logistics, travel and essential businesses across Japan.
SCIENCE & RESEARCH
Global standards and reliable testing
Our testing protocols support multiple mutant strains of the COVID-19 virus, including the most recent variants.
Our scientists continuously monitor the evolution of the pandemic and publish research finding regularly. Our recent research publications are available here.
Our mapping of the COVID-19 variations and sequencing of the different variants contribute to vaccination research and treatments.
Our patented collection devices feature a reagent (preservative solution) that inactivates the virus for safe handling by healthcare professionals and transportation for at-home testing.
Our automated laboratory processes and pool of PCR sequencing machines allows Genesis Healthcare to scale testing capacity for fast turnarounds and large volume of tests according to the evolution of the pandemic.
Positive patients receive an individual consultation with a medical practitioner over the phone and counseling to access relevant medical support. Minimizing the spread of the virus through convenient at-home test kit delivery, returning of samples via post and easy access to test results on-line or via smartphone
