Doing our bit to fight COVID-19

Recently, we have been doing our bit to fight COVID-19 by providing blood samples as part of a Public Health England research activity.

The study is titled Enhanced SeroIncidence for COVID-19 Antibodies among PHE and NHS Staff (ESCAPE)

Along with the other companies at the Porton Down Science Campus, we have been participating in a seroincidence survey that will help Public Health England (PHE) better understand the spread of coronavirus in England.

Every month we have been providing samples that has helped PHE answer important questions about the spread of COVID in the community, what does the presence or absence of antibodies mean and how long do these last for.  Our serum samples was tested with the Euroimmun assay.

We wish Dr Shamez Ladhani and the rest of the ESCAPE team the very best of luck in this important research.
