HBI are increasingly looking for new collaborations with research or industry partners, and we firmly believe that our expertise in the clinical diagnostic field can and will lead to innovative, unique products for the clinical diagnostics market.
For example, since late 2010 HBI have been working with research staff at the Newcastle University Liver Research Group, developing a novel diagnostic kit which ultimately may improve the lives of many thousands of Hepatitis C patients globally. This collaboration has been supported by the Research and Enterprise Service at the University and is an exciting venture for HBI.
More recently, HBI collaborated with Newcastle Hospitals NHS Trust on a poster presentation at the HEART UK Annual Conference 2012 held in Newcastle.
