Staff at diagnostic tests manufacturer SureScreen Diagnostics are celebrating after scooping two prestigious King’s Awards for Enterprise

The company, which manufactures and exports millions of lateral flow tests, has been recognised in the Innovation and International Trade categories.

SureScreen’s expertise came to the fore at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, after it developed antigen lateral flow tests, which were the first European tests to pass the strict validation process in the laboratory by Public Health England.

As a result, they became a vital part of the UK Government’s rapid testing programme and were also exported to help other countries tackle the pandemic overseas.

Paying tribute to his team’s hard work and innovation, director David Campbell said: “We are incredibly proud to have been announced as double King’s Awards winners in recognition of what continues to be a huge company-wide effort to develop and manufacture lateral flow tests that help save lives both in the UK and in countries around the world.

“It is a wonderful testament to the hard work across the whole team, and what makes this fitting is that our company has been built on scientific innovation and has always exported a significant volume of our products, so these awards reflect the ethos of SureScreen Diagnostics from the very beginning.”
