SureScreen Diagnostics Supplying Two Million COVID-19 Antigen Tests to the UK Government
We are pleased to publicise that SureScreen is working with the UK Government. This week we have delivered two million of our COVID-19 Antigen Test Kits, with potential to deliver many more of these much-needed screening products during 2021.
The exciting news was announced by Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock over the weekend, and images of him being tested with one of our cassettes were featured on his Twitter account.
The SureScreen COVID-19 test is not only the first British-manufactured, but the first European-manufactured rapid lateral flow test for COVID-19 to be distributed to the UK Government, and these tests are already helping in healthcare and society throughout Europe.
During stringent studies, the test came back with results of 99.9% specificity and 97% sensitivity. The test is both cost and time effective and will provide a qualitative yes/no result within 15 minutes.
Alastair Campbell, Director, said:
“It is extremely exciting, and the culmination of a lot of work behind the scenes spanning back to May 2020. As much as anything though it is a British success story – a British test for the British market.“
