In the midst of the global pandemic, universities are facing an unprecedented challenge to enable academic life to continue. From Alabama to Glasgow, college campuses have been the sites of numerous COVID-19 clusters.
So how can they stay open, while protecting their staff and students?
‘Gargle Testing’ and Contactless Data Capture
A viable option is for university staff to use quick ‘gargle’ tests at home, and then collect all necessary ID information required using contactless data capture on a mobile device.
For example, Anyline has partnered with LEAD Horizon, a provider of COVID-19 test kits which can be used at home. By simply gargling liquid in a test tube, scanning your ID into the LEAD Horizon WebApp, and sending the test sample back to the lab by post, anyone can be tested in under 24 hours.
For universities, mobile test sites could be easily set up to test staff before allowing entry to the campus.
By performing gargle tests, then using contactless mobile scanning to collect the user’s ID information and the barcode of the test sample, universities have a fast and safe way to ensure the right data is connected to each test, dramatically reducing the time needed for test results.
“Anyline is providing contactless data capture solutions to companies around the world to help control COVID-19,” said Lukas Kinigadner, CEO of Anyline. “This technology enables normal life to continue by providing a fast, accurate, and secure way to collect the information needed for tracking and tracing, as well as for vaccine administration.”
