Located on Surrey Research Park, Eurofins County Pathology, a high quality diagnostic service provider, has been involved in the provision of the testing kits for COVID-19.
Eurofins County Pathology is part of Eurofins, a global leader in testing and laboratory services. The organisation has been providing testing for detection of SARS-CoV-2 in Europe and America. Global capacity mid March was around 10,000 tests per day and split between Europe and America.
Following requests from government health authorities, Eurofins teams are working round the clock to increase capacity. It has been expected to increase to well over 15,000 tests per day by Monday 23 March 2020 and significantly more by 01 April 2020 as new sites and testing methods are added.
In each geography, Eurofins laboratories are working closely with public health authorities and following their priorities to support hospitals and medical professionals fighting this unseen health crisis.
