COVID-19 Outbreak


We have been made aware that the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is making it difficult for laboratories across the world to deliver core services. With this in mind, we will be extending trial deadlines for all new trials issued by one week. If you are still unable to provide a result within this extended timeframe, or you are unable to return results in currently live trials, please do not hesitate to contact us at and we will do everything we can to help.
