Throughout Alert Level 4, Rako Science services continue as usual with PCR Travel Certificates still available within 24 hours, and service levels are increasing significantly for surveillance testing. Travel Consultants and Passengers can continue booking online for PCR Travel Certificates at any of our six locations here. Rako Science Marketing Manager, Anna Williams is reassuring customers needing PCR Travel Certificates that Rako Science’s service is unaffected by the latest outbreak and Alert Level 4 lockdown. “Our systems are built to scale and so we are continuing to serve people with Rako Science PCR Travel Certificates without interruption across New Zealand,” Anna Williams said. With New Zealand entering Alert Level 4 on 17 August 2021, COVID-19 testing numbers have surged nationally. Increased testing volumes are increasing pressure on laboratories and causing delays on results being issued to individuals not considered close contacts or symptomatic. For pre-departure passengers and employers of essential service providers, this delay can cause significant disruption to travel and business. “We are continuing on business as usual with certificates available within 24 hours from six locations across Auckland, Waikato and Wellington. “Our saliva test is non-invasive and is also suitable for young children,” Ms Williams said. Rako Science PCR Travel Certificates include QR codes allowing airlines and border authorities to verify authenticity online. They are successfully used at airline check-in and airport arrivals for international travellers to Asia, Europe and the USA. Rako Science is also serving some of New Zealand’s largest organisations in a broad range of industries and has significantly increased testing volumes, enabling them to keep essential services going. Rako Science has been testing workplaces since January 2021 to prevent pre-symptomatic and asymptomatic infected people from spreading COVID-19 in the workplace.
