COVID-19 Testing

Keeping the cameras rolling

To ensure that television and film productions could continue safely throughout the pandemic, we provided London Medical Laboratory with 5 mobile testing laboratories. The fleet – which can be quickly relocated as necessary – facilitates the collection and testing of Covid-19 samples from production set cast and crew. 

Ricky Smith, CRO, London Medical Laboratory, commented “EMS Healthcare’s mobile Covid-testing laboratories provide a compliant and convenient space for us to screen cast and crew on site. This has allowed the film and television industry to safely continue throughout the pandemic by ensuring a Covid-secure set." 

"Each of the 5 units are compact but fit for purpose, maximising testing throughput and providing a spacious and modern environment for our laboratory team to work in. Working to tight deadlines, the team at EMS Healthcare ensured our units were ready within 3 weeks of order – enabling us to respond to urgent changes in our client’s filming schedules.”
