What we do
Rako Science provides saliva-based COVID-19 surveillance testing at scale to protect New Zealand workers, businesses and vulnerable communities, and pre-departure PCR testing to international passengers leaving New Zealand.
Our saliva test is non-invasive and suitable for young children.
Our saliva test has high sensitivity and specificity and has been proven to be as accurate as nasal tests.
Processed through IGENZ, our test is IANZ accredited and the only diagnostically validated saliva test for COVID-19 in New Zealand.
Fast turnaround time
Our PCR Travel Certificates are normally available within 24 hours.
Our PCR Travel Certificates are successfully used at airline check-in and airport arrivals for international travellers to Asia, Europe and the USA.
QR Code Verification
Our PCR Travel Certificates include QR codes allowing airlines and border authorities to verify authenticity online.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE SAID
Through Rako Science, we had all our pre-departure saliva-based COVID-19 testing for both the Final Olympic Qualification Regatta and the Tokyo Olympic Games completed locally, in a collection site opened with our team in mind.
