I cannot read the report fatherJS but I should think not! It is beyond dangerous that anyone should htink it safe to travel overseas just on the basis of a clear lft. Those with false negatives spreading the virus through both home and foreign destinations doesn't bear thinking about. IF one has to travel (and I'm torn on that issue because as my name would suggest the airline game was my life and career and i hate to see it suffer) the very least we should be demanding is a clear pcr test - the GOLD standard back as far as 2019 at least!

Semantics my dear boy! You no doubt heard the phrase and possibly applied it yourself in this context. It is clear though, however you look at it that the company were using the phraseology as far back as 2019
This is scary - Testing is the answer!!09 May 2021 21:17
https://uk.yahoo.com/news/frightening-covid-19-variants-infecting-130000541.html We're in a critical race between vaccines and variants of the virus, and despite all the progress we've made in recent months, the outcome is far from certain. Fewer than one in 10 people on the planet has had even a single dose of any COVID-19 vaccine, while new and frightening variants are infecting people at a record pace. And that puts all of us - even, in a worst-case scenario, the vaccinated among us - at risk of having to go back to square one.
"It's not looking good, just to be totally honest," said leading virologist Dr. James Hildreth. The big question now is, have we seen the worst variations this virus has to offer? More and more, scientists are leaning into the camp of not so sure about that.

Actually Van, Novacyt themselves talked about the 'Gold Standard' in 2019 as per this: See Page 4 of 33 http://novacyt.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/Novacyt-half-year-2019-results-PR-25-9-19-FINAL-ENGLISH.pdf "In May 2019, Primerdesign also launched its next-generation genesig® q32 qPCR molecular testing instrument, to complement the established genesig® q16, launched in 2014. Further operational enhancements to both the q16 and q32 instrument platforms are planned in 2020 to provide gold standard PCR cycle times of 30 minutes.
I've seen that job advert but I would just add a word of caution. The way I read it is they are looking for an individual able to carry our primer design molecular testing rather than alluding to the company Primer Design Ltd. This explains primer design but is nothing at all to do with us! https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7330846/

Basically what they are all saying is testing alongside vaccination and possibly future lockdowns will be here for the foreseeable future and yes we JUST got a mention lol!! Thanks to Novacyt for sponsoring the event!!!
Seychelles, which has fully vaccinated more of its population against Covid-19 than any other country, has closed schools and canceled sporting activities for two weeks as infections surge.
The measures, which include bans on the intermingling of households and the early closure of bars, come even as the country has fully vaccinated more than 60% of its adult population with two doses of coronavirus vaccines. The curbs are similar to those last imposed at the end of 2020.
“Despite of all the exceptional efforts we are making, the Covid-19 situation in our country is critical right now with many daily cases reported last week,” Peggy Vidot, the nation’s health minister, said at a press conference Monday.
And sadly try2buy, we'll probably lose another 4-3% again today. It cannot go on for much longer and when the right news comes in the shape of figures we will have to re-rate. Patience is not easy but hopefully will be worth it.
It's great news and a great find Temuchin. We need to be shouting, singing and dancing about OUR test, as ODX are clearly doing this morning. We are THE company with a Conscience and that is brilliant BUT we also need to be a company championing our amazing abilities and telling the world just how good we really are!!
So boys and girls what have I missed today? A sea of red everywhere I look, not so good. Maybe we should club together and do a Victor Kiam and buy the company? Lol. Dylan could probably buy half of it on his own judging by the weight of his piggy bank. Tomorrow is another day. This will be set free soon, who'd have thought we'd ever be back at about £4? Crazy stoopid but maybe a crafty buying opportunity? Good luck all from us Suffolk boys.
Totally disagree Squidge, only a company comfortable in its abilities and sure of its bottom line would have the confidence to donate such huge numbers of tests for free. IF they were worried about their financial situation they would be doing everything in their power to SELL the tests to anyone, they would not be giving them away! I see only positives with this move. Fantastic company that clearly cares about disadvantaged children.
If ever there are moments when we question our investment in Novacyt, it is at times like this when I see them helping others, particularly children less fortunate than we and ours are that I realise what an amazing company this truly is. Fantastic Mr Mullis, congratulations to him and his team. Novacyt - truly the BEST AIM listed company. Well Done!
