The government wants help from businesses to increase testing capacity in the UK as part of its strategy to protect the NHS and save lives. They want to hear specifically from companies who can manufacture and supply:
• consumables and equipment for coronavirus testing, in particular test kits (such as nose and throat swabs, transport media and vials) and RNA extraction lab consumables (such as reagents, plates and pipette tips)
• new or existing types of coronavirus tests for antigens or antibodies.
• public or private sector organisations that can offer laboratory capacity.
