Our products and services offer fast, non-intrusive, reliable, scalable and effective testing solutions for businesses. We are already supporting a wide range of businesses and organisations, ensuring they have a regular testing regime that works for them, providing employee safety and business continuity.
Although the roll-out of the vaccine is very positive, businesses are increasingly realising that there is a need to “normalise” COVID-19 testing in their workplace in conjunction with the vaccination.
Founded in early 2020 to supply scalable COVID-19 testing solutions to help businesses and organisations rebuild confidence and trust with employees and customers. Our Co-Founders Richard Hughes and Mahmud Kamani – Founders of Boohoo, have extensive experience in e-commerce, supply chains, marketing and e-fulfilment, enabling Medusa 19 to play a key role in ‘Rebuilding Confidence’ in businesses and the economy.
