A specialist genetic cancer testing business based in Nantwich, Cheshire, has been awarded a contract to supply an end-to-end COVID PCR testing service to healthcare company, Bupa.

Everything Genetic, which expanded its services last year to assist with the national COVID testing effort, is now a Government-approved COVID-19 private testing provider and has recruited 21 new members of staff since October to support its growth, 15 of which are based from its head office in Nantwich.

The secured Bupa contract is to provide a bespoke COVID-19 testing service, including the supply of CE marked PCR nasal and throat swab test kits, processing samples in a UK accredited laboratory with results reported within 48 hours, full in-house logistics management, and custom branded online ordering and reporting process.

Commenting on this significant contract win for the company, Everything Genetic CEO and Founder James Price said:

“We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded this contract. Bupa wanted a bespoke solution for their Health Clinic consumers. By working in partnership supported by our teams’ hard work and dedication, we were able to deliver a solution in record time.

“Our capability to offer such a comprehensive COVID-19 PCR testing service, customised for sales partners such as Bupa, is due to the company’s continued investment in a custom-built online ordering and reporting portal, the set-up of our own in-house logistics hub in Nantwich, and our teams commitment to providing a best-in-class service.”

“We are proud of our long-standing relationship with Bupa; together we are making a positive difference to people’s health and wellbeing,” added James.

Everything Genetic first launched its COVID-19 testing service in May 2020. They offer a range of test kits, including a point of care antibody test for administration by a healthcare professional, a PCR nasal and throat swab test, and a PCR saliva test. Hundreds of sales partners across the UK ranging from private GPs, wellness clinics, pharmacies, professional sports clubs, and employers purchase these test kits from Everything Genetic.
