So it looks like that HuffPost UK article was right all along ( Avacta and Mologic COVID-19 tests to become test of choice for UK government – reports ).
Following today’s announcement by the government that it had selected Omega Diagnostics and Global Access Diagnostics as its manufacturers of choice, DHSC Minister of Innovation James Bethell appeared to let slip what many had hoped for on Twitter:
“We’re investing in 2m LFDs per week by end May from British firms @OmegaDiagnostic (Flag of Scotland) and @mologic to stop the spread of COVID-19.”Lord Bethell
As you will see in the above tweet, Bethell mentioned Omega Diagnostics in the same space as Mologic (its key commercial partner) – although today’s press release only referred to Omega Diatnostics and Global Access Diagnostics.
Clearly James is a man in the know and has let slip what was expected and has confirmed the HuffPost UK article.
Next up…Avacta? Its soaring share price with no recent news flow suggests something special is ready to go here.
Either way, there can be no doubt that Omega Diagnostics will now have a test to produce!
