Eurofins Megalab and lastminute.com have signed a Europe-wide agreement to provide travellers with SARS-coV-2 (COVID-19) diagnostic tests both in their countries of origin and at their destination. Timely and precise diagnostic tests are still an essential tool to prevent and control the propagation of COVID-19, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO). Eurofins Megalab, a leading clinical analysis company, strengthens its commitment to this testing in order to detect asymptomatic cases and to halt the spread of the virus (recently Eurofins Megalab introduced in Spain a test that identifies in just a few hours the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2).
