This suite of customised solutions provided by our partner, ENGIE Solutions, will enable us to continue to process tests at the same rate while limiting the staff on-ground, therefore increasing their safety, enabling more social distancing with more staff staying at home, and contributing to the overall safety of the UAE during this unprecedented outbreak.”
