Rizek, one of the fastest growing Abu Dhabi-based start-ups, which is the first ‘super app’ for on-demand home services in the country, has become the first company in the Middle East region to add at-home PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test services to its offerings.
This first-of-its-kind service which is accessible for people in the UAE is convenient and alleviates the need for customers to visit hospitals or clinics or to stand in queues. For this service, Rizek has partnered with top tier hospitals certified by Dubai Health Authority and Abu Dhabi’s Department of Health and providing COVID- 19 PCR tests.
Abdallah Abu Sheikh, the founder and chief operating officer of Rizek, said: “Rizek has been consistently pioneering solutions to help fight the pandemic and was the first platform to launch on-demand sanitisation services. We also offered free disinfection services for labour camps and have now added at-home PCR to the list of healthcare and well-being services being already provided. We look forward to continuously serving the UAE community in line with the vision of the UAE’s exemplary leadership, with a hope for a healthier and stronger society.”
The PCR test results offered through Rizek partners are certified and approved for travel purposes, both internationally and regionally. The service is part of Rizek’s commitment to align with and facilitate the UAE government's plan to widen the coronavirus testing and make it available to all citizens and residents across the country.
The tests are conducted with a fast turnaround time of 24 hours, which is SEHA-compliant. Customers can also opt for an express service that delivers results in just eight hours.
Founded in 2019 by Abdallah Abu-Sheikh, a seasoned entrepreneur from Amman, Rizek is a super app for on demand services that directly connects users to service professionals from a wide range of industries, thereby enabling better and more efficient relationships between them. Through transforming the way services are rendered, Rizek is strengthening the service sector in the region, with a focus on improving service quality and increasing job opportunities.
