COVID-19: results of LAMP and Lateral Flow Devices validation and evaluation


  • At least 20% of healthcare workers have been infected with COVID-19.
  • Reports from individual hospitals and modelling have demonstrated that asymptomatic healthcare workers can transmit to other healthcare workers and onward in the community
  • SAGE has recommended that all healthcare workers have asymptomatic testing at least weekly to reduce transmission in healthcare environments.
  • While PCR capacity has increased, in order to test healthcare workers alternative technologies are required to have sufficient capacity to deliver this ambition.
  • This webinar will share the latest validation and evaluation data of LAMP and LFDs by the experts who performed the studies and analysis


Chaired by Professor Jo Martin, President RCPath and Professor Martin Llewelyn, President BIA
