 With a sensitivity of 97.1% and a specificity of 99.6%. With pricing starts from a little as £8 per test kit. The individually packaged test is imminently due to receive self-testing approval in the form of UK MHRA Emergency use (it is the second test to achieve this, the only other being the controversially contrived UK govt NHS Test & Trace test). The test will also simultaneously receive Europe wide CE self-testing approval and it will be the first test in Europe to achieve this. 

Swallow Events are currently in discussions with multinational retailers which will enable self-testing kits to be purchased individually alongside your weekly shopping, for example. 

Working alongside the Albanian government. Swallow Events is also proud to announce its partnership with Unum Festival where they will be hosting the worlds first non-socially distanced, full-scale, Covid 19 rapid tested festival.  

Butrint Baholli, CEO of Unum Festival, said “We are delighted to be working with Swallow Events in conjunction with the Albanian government, to ensure that Unum Festival can take place in a safe and secure way for all our visitors. We will have testing on and off site at the festival and Swallow Events are working to provide us with the delivery plan.”

Over 500 other clients internationally have been in consultation with Swallow Events regarding the use of rapid testing provisions for their forthcoming events/festivals, including Picnic Records, Campo Sancho Festival and Access the Music Festival, to name but a few.  

Swallow Events have also signed an exclusive agreement with Yoti, the worlds most advanced and established (2 years), biometrics and highly secure, blockchain identification testing platform which has received over £85m in research and development, is used by the NHS, UK governments and has over 10 million downloads to date. Swallow Events’s self-testing kits can also be linked to a brand new digital home test verification section of the highly secure, anti-spoofing platform where most importantly, only the user has access to their data. The reusable Yoti digital ID app is secure, privacy-preserving and puts people’s ID documents and important information on their phone, encrypted and under their control. Yoti cannot track users or share any of their data without permission. 

Swallow Events have also confirmed their latest distribution contract to supply Covid 19 rapid testing kits throughout Canada.

Oli Thomas (Founder and Managing Director, Swallow Events) comments: 

“With the constant shifting of sands regarding rules and regulations surrounding global event testing and most importantly, the UK government’s controversial health passports which are yet to be developed but are allegedly being trialed as part of the ‘Events Research Programme’. We decided to have all eventualities covered by not only offering the worlds first onsite Covid-19 testing service and consultancy for events in October 2020 but now we’re even more excited to announce the UK and Europe’s first CE approved commercial ‘at home, self-testing service linked to a user generated digital blockchain verification platform’ and therefore enabling pre-event, home testing for spaces like nightclubs, who do not necessarily have the space and infrastructure to facilitate on the door testing, through to large scale festivals, events, business conferences, stadia and even enabling an efficient and inexpensive way to the unlocking of air travel throughout the UK and Europe”.
