North East Innovation Lab

The North East Innovation Lab was set up by Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust with this specific aim to help speed up the process for diagnostic developers to get their product to market by providing access to samples and independent performance evaluations. We have an HTA-registered biobank containing over 20,000 SAR-Cov-2 samples and the ability to collect bespoke samples for this and other diseases on request. We can support with diagnostic test evaluations, including analytical performance and clinical performance evaluations, and can also help develop test protocols and provide control materials.
