London Testing Alliance: COVID-19 testing lab goes online at Queen Mary
A new COVID-19 testing lab at Queen Mary University of London has started processing NHS Test and Trace samples from the UK population, to increase the country’s testing capacity.
Queen Mary is part of the London Testing Alliance announced in October, set up by life science cluster MedCity, which brings together world-leading universities, healthcare institutes, industry and pathology service providers. The alliance is using untapped resources and building on existing infrastructure and is anticipated to grow to offer at least 20,500 more COVID-19 tests a day for the UK.
