Covid-19 PCR tests for all airlines, 50% discount for Rehman Travels customers.
Corona virus has changed the dimensions of world order. More than economic issues, now health has become the priority of every country. A disease that is associated with complication in respiratory track is caused by SARS-COV-2. COVID-19 testing is the new normal in contemporary world. The complexity and urgency of the current situation continues to grow and in this case laboratorians plays an important role. Testing for SARS-COV-2 is not only the need in managing COVID-19 patients but fast, accurate screening and monitoring for the variety of health issues that may arise as part of COVID-19 disease management are also needed. Laboratory testing plays an essential role in managing COVID-19.
Rehman Group of Travels (RGT), has successfully achieved milestone in the field of travel and tourism. Now, the other venture to be achieved is in health department. Rehman Laboratories, the results you can trust is a fully equipped facility employed with highly qualified and trained molecular biologist, microbiologists, lab technicians and paramedics. Rehman laboratories endeavors to provide standardize and qualitative services and through its cutting edge technologies aims to ease the suffering of patients. To manage the increased demand of COVID-19 testing, our laboratory provides the COVID-19 PCR testing. This PCR testing, a polymerase chain reaction is the most accurate and reliable testing to check COVID-19. Rehman laboratories offers this service not only to its airlines passengers (integrating with more than 200 Airlines) but also to other people. Lab equipment’s being used for COVID-19 meet the standards of World Health Organization (WHO) and National Institute of Health (NIH). Our lab is accredited by Islamabad Healthcare Regulatory Authority (IHRA). And an External Quality Assurance (EQA), an objective assessment of laboratory tests result, program has been set by National Institute of Health (NIH), where its virology department is rendering its services. Moreover, NIH has also updated Rehman Laboratories on its website with serial no#24. Both viral and antibody (IgG/IgM) testing of COVID-19 is available. Following equipment’s needed to examine COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) are used in our lab:
- Accredited/Certified Biosafety Cabinet Class II B2, are used to store volatile, toxic, chemicals and radionuclides for microbiological studies.
- High throughput Automated RNA extractor (Smart LabAssist-32) is a fully automated magnetic bead-based nucleic acid extraction system, the easy to use system can process to 32 samples simultaneously within a short period of time (40 to 60 min), to obtain high purity nucleic acid.
- Thermocycler-RT PCR AMPLIIab (IVD, CE marked &US FDA approved) used to amplify small segments of DNA via Polymerase Chain Reaction. Real-Time PCR is designed to collect data as the reaction is proceeding, which is more accurate for DNA and RNA quantitation and does not require laborious post PCR methods.
- Auto extraction kit (TANBead Nucleic Acid Extraction Kit) is the advanced procedure in which magnetic beads are used to extract nucleic acid. Established in 2004, Taiwan Advanced Nanotech Inc. designs and manufactures products for nucleic acid purification, including reagent kits, magnetic nanoparticles, and automated extraction instruments. Our patented magnetic bead spin mixing technology empowers enhanced extraction efficiency. Each Maelstrom product embodies this novel technology and delivers improved performance for applications in molecular diagnostics and life sciences. Maelstrom products are FDA and CE approved, and the patents are granted in the EU, USA, Canada, Korea, Japan, China, and Taiwan.
- PCR kits (ARGENE from BioMerieux France; US FDA, CE, IVD & European multicenter trailed). Real-time PCR kit for the detection of SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A, Influenza B, RSV A&B and hMPV A&B. It is one all-in-one kit. Results delivered in 4 to 5 hours.
Passengers travelling to US, UK, Middle East, Far East Europe and Canada can facilitate themselves. Sample collection from home and online –reporting within 24-hours is provided. Through integrated clinical practice, education and research, we aim for the betterment of healthier society.
