Passengers at the Russian airport will get the testing result in just 60 minutes.

MOSCOW - The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), Russia's sovereign wealth fund, and Sheremetyevo International Airport announce the launch of express-testing for coronavirus, using EMG systems, for arriving and departing passengers.

It is a pilot project for Russia's transport industry. The express service for COVID-19 diagnostics providing the most reliable result in 60 minutes is being introduced at Sheremetyevo airport ahead of the upcoming opening of international regular air services and meets the requests of passengers. Testing will be available for all passengers from July 20 2020 at the Terminal B health center (domestic flights), and July 27 2020 at Terminal D (domestic and international flights). The test results will be available in Russian and English.

The EMG diagnostic system, created with support from RDIF, is one of the fastest and most accurate in the world; adapted for both fixed and unique mobile mini-laboratories (the portable system fits in two small suitcases).

The test systems are already used for preventive testing at the production facilities of the largest Russian enterprises and to ensure safety at major events. Notably, the leaders and members of official delegations who arrived in the Russian Federation for the Victory Parade on June 24 were also tested for coronavirus using EMG systems. The express diagnostic system is ready for use everywhere and can be provided as a service for passengers at transport facilities such as airports and train stations.
