ALS Malaysia has recently received the recognition of Ministry of Health as a COVID-19 testing laboratory for clinical samples, which allows us to provide a more holistic testing program alongside our existing COVID-19 environmental testing solutions.
Comprehensive COVID-19 Monitoring Program
We offer testing services for:
- Nasopharyngeal swab
- Deep throat saliva
- Surface swab
- Food & Food packaging
COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test
Human PCR swab tests directly detect the presence of the COVID-19 genomic material in any individual. COVID-19 PCR Test is the most accurate and definitive test for COVID-19. ALS Malaysia offers Combined Nasopharyngeal Swab & Oropharyngeal Swab kit for medical doctors who are performing this test. PCR swab test for COVID-19 is the gold standard currently for most countries.
Besides the swabs, the Malaysia Health Ministry has approved the use of “deep throat saliva” as test samples for the diagnosis of Covid-19 on 19th February 2021. ALS Malaysia offers deep throat saliva testing services for COVID-19 detection using a specialist saliva container that stabilizes DNA and RNA long term in saliva sample.
Just 2ml of saliva is required for this test and saliva has been described as a good candidate for diagnosis of COVID-19, showing sensitivity and specificity comparable to nasopharyngeal swabs.
Our saliva sampling device is approved by local authority and suitable for transportation at room temperature not exceeding 30°C within 7 days.
Benefits of Covid-19 saliva test
- Approved by Ministry of Health, Malaysia
- Non-Invasive and Painless
- Easier for children and elderly
- RT-PCR test
- Receive your result within 24 to 48 hours
Environmental & Food
COVID-19 is currently known to be transmittable through respiratory droplets, contact
and very likely, air. With the current testing capacity of the country, clinical testing alone
might not be enough for effective disease containment.
Why do we test environmental and food samples?
Air & surface testing
o Better prevention
o Better tracking on how virus moves
o Better tracking on duration of viral persistence
o Early warning
o Identifying areas for targeted testing
o Assessing the effectiveness of mitigation plan
Food and Food packaging
Contamination by COVID-19 Virus Could Happen Unknowingly Along the Production Line
- Frozen products
- Ready-to-eat food
