Cignpost Diagnostics teams up with three new sports organisations
leading testing firm Cignpost Diagnostics have teamed up with sport organisations Canyon dhb SunGod, Aramco Team series and Sail GP to provide Covid 19 testing and screening services.
Cignpost have tested Sail GP at the Great British Sail Grand Prix which was held on the 17-18th July and will be Canyon DHB Sungod’s official UK testing partner for Tour Of Britain 2021 which starts in September. Cignpost’s partnership with Aramco Team Series also marks greater expansion in the golf world as Cignpost Diagnostics continues to provide testing for the PGA European Tour.
Responding to the new partnerships, Christian Corney, CEO of Cignpost Diagnostics, stated the increased importance of PCR testing for the reopening of events:
“As lockdown restrictions continue to ease, the likelihood of community transmissions will increase, especially given the return of mass-scale events such as those we have just seen in relation to Wimbledon and the Euros. Now, with the announcement that attendees will need proof of double vaccination to enter these sort of events, it is important that testing is offered as a viable alternative for spectators. This is important given that the Government’s mass pilot events assessments appear to indicate that transmission can be restricted when proper viral hygiene and gold-standard PCR testing is deployed.”
“It is no surprise that we are still seeing increased demand from sports organisations looking to ensure that they are taking the necessary procedures to reduce covid-19 transmission. As an organisation, we are delighted to be expanding our partnerships within the elite sports world and to be helping to guarantee the safety of athletes across the world.”
Jennie Kim of SailGP said: “Keeping our world-class athletes, global staff, guests, media and fans safe is absolutely paramount to us at SailGP. It is essential that we take the necessary procedures to reduce Covid-19 transmissions and our partnership with Cignpost Diagnostics – as official screening services supplier for the Great Britain Sail Grand Prix – is an essential part of this. Their expertise, operations on site and ability to turn around fast and accurate results was essential to the successful running of the event and screening services is now an essential part of the fabric of any event in these current times.”
