About Project Screen by Circle, led by Prenetics

Project Screen by Circle uses clinical tools and processes, proven in NHS London hospitals and internationally as a means to get key industries and sports leagues safely back to work and play. The Doctors Laboratory (‘TDL’), one of Europe’s leading pathology laboratories which lists NHS England as one of its clients, has been appointed to undertake the laboratory testing processes. Samples will be taken in pop-up centres managed by healthcare professionals.

The Project Screen by Circle system is being delivered by a consortium led by Prenetics, and supported by TDL (part of Sonic Healthcare Group which is also working with the Bundesliga in Germany). The consortium has a depth of experience in the relevant fields of expertise for COVID-19 testing, both in a clinical and community setting. The consortium is also supported and advised by the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Birmingham.

The Project Screen by Circle consortium will provide test kits and consumables, laboratory analysis, personnel, equipment, logistics, site management, results delivery and clinical oversight. Importantly, all TDL laboratories are accredited as medical laboratories to ISO15189 standard by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).

Prenetics, and its group associates and suppliers, are currently delivering solutions to Premier League, NHS England, the Bundesliga, and Deliveroo (Hong Kong).

Avi Lasarow, EMEA CEO of Prenetics, leader of the consortium, says:

“Project Screen by Circle will provide extensive COVID-19 testing of players and participants across a range of sports, and other sectors and employers, their support teams and staff, to help facilitate the return of the 2019/20 sports season and beyond.

We are delighted to be playing our part in helping the nation get back to a sense of normality through work, sport, and leisure activity.

We have the depth of experience and expertise necessary for COVID-19 testing solutions, both in a clinical and community setting, and are looking forward to making sure every Premier League player is as healthy and safe as possible.”
