Monday 28th March 2022: Global Leaders combine to provide pre-race COVID testing of UAE Team Emirates

Randox, a world leader in Health Diagnostics has been announced as the Official Supplier of UAE Team Emirates. The two-time winners of cycling’s most prestigious prize, the Tour de France.

The agreement will see UAE Team Emirates utilise the Vivalytic, a point of care platform brought to the market by Randox Laboratories and Bosch Healthcare Solutions to test riders and the wider support staff for COVID prior to upcoming races and tours.

The Bosch Vivalytic brings innovation to the Molecular Diagnostic testing market. A fully automated, sample to point of care diagnostic machine with the full molecular workflow consolidated into one small benchtop platform.

The ethos of improving healthcare which drove Randox Managing Director Dr Peter Fitzgerald to start the company in the 1980s is clearly reciprocated by their new partners. From their initiation into the top tier of professional cycling in 2017, UAE Team Emirates have had the aim of representing an entire nation, the UAE, and promoting a healthy lifestyle through cycling.

Team UAE Emirates are the newest addition to Randox’s growing portfolio of elite sporting sponsorships, which includes; GB Olympic and Paralympic teams, Sheffield United Football Club, Olimpia Milano and the Aintree Randox Grand National. The first endeavour into the United Arab Emirates sporting industry comes as no surprise as Randox have been providing UAE Hospitals, Universities and Veterinary centres with their broad range of products and services, offering a comprehensive insight into patient diagnosis to facilitate more effective disease management and treatment for a number of years.

Giulio Saule, Randox International Sales Manager stated:

“For a Global Company such as Randox it is an honour to be supplier of COVID tests to UAE Team Emirates, a team that in both 2020 and 2021 won the Tour de France and ended in the top 5 of the UCI Teams Ranking. The effort of the team in talents looks exactly the same as Randox effort in bringing innovative technologies on the market. This cooperation then brings Randox in one of the elite sports where surely there may be different horizons than COVID.”

 

Andrea Agostini, chief operating officer UAE Team Emirates stated:

We have paid a lot of attention against this virus since the beginning. For us the health of our members is a priority and to have the possibility to test them always, autonomously, during the cycling season is a big advantage.

About Team UAE

UAE Team Emirates entered the highest level of professional cycling, the World Tour, in early 2017. The team has the aim of representing an entire nation, the UAE, and promoting a healthy lifestyle linked to the use of the bicycle.

Season after season, the Emirati team has attracted a growing number of world-class riders and quality sponsors, taking them to new heights and successes in the biggest races in the world. The culmination of this growth and success has come with the victories of Tadej Pogacar in the Tour de France in 2020 and 2021.

A slam-dunking new partnership agreed between Randox Laboratories and Olimpia Milano

About Randox       News        Contact Us

Monday 22nd November 2021: A slam-dunking new partnership agreed between Randox Laboratories and Olimpia Milano

Global health diagnostics company Randox Laboratories has been announced as the official Diagnostics Partner of Olimpia Milano basketball team, in a new partnership spanning the remainder of the 2021/22 season.

Taking effect immediately, the new deal will see the sporting institution have access to Randox technology to perform a variety of health testing on Olimpia’s athletes and wider support staff. The cutting-edge health testing programme will include COVID PCR and lateral flow testing, a capability Randox already provides for international travel requirements and the UK’s National Testing Programme.

Adding to Randox’s existing portfolio of sports sponsorships which include the Great Britain and Northern Ireland Olympic and Paralympic Teams, the Aintree Racecourse Randox Grand National, and Sheffield United Football Club, the agreement with Olimpia Milano is the first venture into the European sports industry for the global testing company, which has an office in Rome from which it sells its pioneering tests and machines to hospitals, universities and veterinary centres across Italy.

Giulio Saule, Randox Sales Manager for North Italy, explained;

“Randox is tremendously proud to be associated with a sporting organisation as prestigious as Olimpia Milano and to have the opportunity to bring our testing capabilities, including COVID testing, out of the standard laboratory setting and on to the court, so that players and coaches may directly benefit from our world-leading diagnostic technologies.

“Our clinical tests and analysers have useful applications for sports science to help measure, predict and develop athletic performance, and so we look forward to working with the squad to not only ensure COVID-safe exercise and games, but to enhance their training plans for optimal results.”

Founded in 1982 in County Antrim by leading medical scientist Dr. Peter FitzGerald‎ CBE, Randox has been saving lives through early and accurate diagnosis for almost 40 years. Today more than 5% of the world’s population – in excess of 370 million people across 145 countries – receives medical diagnosis through use of Randox products each year.

To achieve its goals the company is committed to an extensive research programme, which includes the investment of more than £300m in the development of its innovative biochip array technology which allows many tests to be run simultaneously, greatly improving the diagnostic power available to clinicians. The company currently employs more than 2000 people of over 40 different nationalities.

Dr. Peter FitzGerald, Managing Director of Randox Laboratories, is thrilled at the new Olimpia Milano partnership and expansion into the European sports industry, stating;

“We understand the importance of comprehensive and reliable testing within sport and furthermore the significant reach for our preventative health messaging when channelled through the power of sport. As a global market leader within the clinical diagnostics field, it was a ‘no-brainer’ for Randox to partner with a similarly ambitious sporting organisation leading the way in both the Lega Basket Serie A and the EuroLeague.

“We look forward to working alongside Olimpia Milano – working together to push the boundaries of healthcare and enhance team performance as the season progresses.”

Christos Stavropoulos, General Manager of Olimpia Milano, concluded;

“We are very excited for this new partnership with Randox, which has been well-known across the life sciences industry in Italy for many years but is now also a household name for its COVID testing laboratories which have grown to be one of the largest and most productive in Europe.  We are extremely impressed with their operation and look forward to working together as both organisations go from strength to strength in the years ahead.”

Why does Randox sponsor Equine Sports events?

Why does Randox sponsor Equine Sports?

1 September 2021: Why does Randox sponsor Equine Sports?

Some may be wondering, why is a healthcare company so invested in the equine industry? Why would they sponsor the world’s most famous steeplechase – The Randox Grand National?

It’s a labour of love… Peter FitzGerald’s fond attachment to the equestrian world, together with 40 years’ experience in the in vitro diagnostics industry, was the perfect match.

Clinical diagnostics is at the heart of Randox and our experience and expertise has paved the way for the development of innovative and accurate diagnostic products for Equine Health.

You could say ‘it runs in our blood.’

With 70% of all medical decisions based on the analysis of blood, Randox are set to release the VeraSTAT-V, a stable-side Equine Serum Amyloid A test device designed to detect levels of inflammation in horse blood in a matter of minutes.

The ability to quickly detect and monitor your horse’s health, at the stable side, brings huge benefits to both horse and owner. Early detection of inflammatory states means treatment plans can start sooner, recovery periods are shorter, and the horse can return to work healthy much earlier.

When performance is key, monitoring inflammation is vital.

Whether it’s detecting inflammation related to joint injury, or screening for infection before or after transport, competition or surgery, the VeraSTAT-V is a valuable means to monitor Equine Health.

At Randox, we have enjoyed a long-standing partnership with the Jockey Club and will continue to deliver innovative diagnostics solutions to the Equine Industry for the years ahead.

Interested in finding out more? 

For all Equine SAA and/or Veterinary related inquiries, please email marketing@randox.com or visit www.randox.com/veraSTAT-V for more information.

Randox Biochip is centre stage at Goodwood Festival of Speed Future Lab

About Randox       News        Contact Us

Randox Biochip is centre stage at Goodwood Festival of Speed Future Lab

You visit the doctor because you think there is a problem. The doctor suspects it may be an infection but she’s not sure. A blood sample is taken and sent to the laboratory where three to five tests are run on it. Your blood does not show a positive reading for any of the tests conducted. You still don’t know what’s wrong.  Does this sound familiar?

Enter a pioneering piece of technology called the Biochip. This health testing platform, from global diagnostics company Randox, and on show at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, can uniquely run multiple tests simultaneously – making sure you get the right diagnosis as fast as possible.

Current and futuristic developments in this critical strand of medicine, involving detailed analysis of blood to identify both current and future health risks, appeared as part of the Future Lab project at the festival which took place  8th – 11th July 2021. Those who visited Future Lab found out how technology can be utilised to improve the speed and accuracy of health diagnoses across the world.

The event’s reach afforded Randox a valuable platform from which to promote the importance of early, accurate and reliable diagnostics, and understandably, our message this year resonates more clearly than ever before.

The impact of the pandemic has highlighted the need for early and accurate diagnostics, which can and do save lives. Randox set up the largest throughput COVID-19 laboratory in the UK and we have completed over 12 million gold-standard PCR tests for the UK’s National Testing Programme, representing approximately 21% of all PCR tests in the UK.

More sensitive, comprehensive and accurate technologies hold the promise of much earlier and more effective diagnosis, often before symptoms appear – greatly improving healthcare outcomes and reducing the burden on healthcare services.  And these technologies are directly available to the individual through Randox Health, not just through GPs or hospitals.

It is also a fact that diagnostics have historically been undervalued – in healthcare systems around the world laboratory technologies account for around 2% of overall budgets, yet 70%-80% of all healthcare decisions affecting diagnosis or treatment involve a laboratory investigation.

Sensing the potential to improve healthcare through diagnostic innovation, Randox has invested significantly in the development of Biochip Array Technology, allowing many tests to be run simultaneously.

Goodwood

Pictured at the Randox Future Lab stand at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2021 are the RAF Red Arrows

The Randox Biochip is key to unlocking true personalised medicine. Ultimately it acts as a roadmap of your health by predicting the health conditions of which you are personally at risk in the future. By taking preventive action you will be empowered to live healthier for longer. It’s the world’s first technology of its kind, capable of extending your life.

Also new to the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year was the Future Lab Podcast, presented by Randox.

Over the course of the podcast series, Future Lab curator Lucy Johnston met the people tackling the biggest problems facing planet earth and pushing humanity to achieve things we’ve never seen before. The Future Lab podcast tells the stories of the people taking ideas from the pages of science fiction and bringing them to life before our eyes.⠀⠀

About Randox       News        Contact Us

Wednesday 23 June 2021

Ulster University Announces Creation of New Role at Brand New School of Medicine: the Randox Professor of Medicine

Ulster University has received £1.2million in funding for medical education and research from Randox Laboratories Ltd. Thanks to this generous donation from Randox Laboratories, the University is creating its first Professor of Medicine post, to be titled, the Randox Professor of Medicine.

This will be a clinical and academic post so the appointee to the Randox Professorship will provide educational leadership, teaching and training thus inspiring the next generation of doctors and researchers in the area.

Alongside education, the post holder will develop a research portfolio in line with the research strategy of the School of Medicine and ambitions included in the Health Research Institute-THRIVE (HRI-THRIVE) Project as part of the Derry and Strabane City Deal.

The successful appointee to the Randox Professorship will have an outstanding track-record in medical research with the experience, vision and enthusiasm to build on current strengths in the University and develop a leading research presence in the School of Medicine.

The Randox Professor will be part of a vibrant and intellectually stimulating translational research community both within the School of Medicine and C-TRIC and will have access to the leading research facilities which the University offers. They will have the opportunity to collaborate with existing researchers in personalised medicine and influence the research and innovation direction of the proposed THRIVE Research Units that currently include: Blood Cancer; Cardiovascular Research and Improvement Science; Neuromuscular Health (Motor Neuron Disease, MS, Parkinson’s Disease); Brain Health (Depression, psychosis, Alzheimer’s Disease); Orthopaedic and Rheumatic Health; and Multiple Long-term Conditions.

The Randox professor will deliver clinical care within the Western Trust, contributing directly to patient care and improving health outcomes for our local community.

Dr Catherine McDonnell, Medical Director at the Western Trust, is excited at the new appointment:

“This is a unique opportunity, and shows what can be achieved with collaborative working and by forging partnerships between organisations.

“The Randox Professorship will play a crucial role in the delivery of patient care in the months and years ahead, and will help us bring in fresh expertise to what is already a very strong team on the ground.

“We would like to thank both Ulster University and Randox Laboratories for partnering in this exciting venture, which we believe will have a very positive impact on our patients and the Western Trust overall.”

Pictured left to right are Dr Peter FitzGerald, Managing Director, Randox Laboratories, and Professor Paul Bartholomew, Vice-Chancellor at Ulster University 

The post will report into the Foundation Dean of the School of Medicine and recruitment will commence in the coming weeks.

The role will be supported by Randox Laboratories for a period of 5 years.

Dr Peter FitzGerald, Managing Director, Randox Laboratories said:

“At this time of rapid and significant change within medicine, it is imperative that industry, academia and medical education are aligned to improve both patient outcomes and the efficiency of healthcare services.  The announcement of the new post of Randox Professor of Medicine within the new Ulster University School of Medicine shows our commitment to these critical national priorities. Ulster University and Randox are both renowned globally for healthcare research and education, particularly in the field of diagnostics, and together provide a vital platform to support the next generation of aspirational clinicians – to develop critical skills, make a positive difference to patient healthcare around the world, and cement Northern Ireland’s reputation as a global hub for life sciences.”

Professor Paul Bartholomew, Vice-Chancellor at Ulster University added:

“By opening the School of Medicine in August we are committing to address the acute shortage of doctors in Northern Ireland and to recruit students and staff who will be locally focused yet globally ambitious. The appointment of the Randox Professor of Medicine will enable us to further this ambition and allow us to enhance the University’s existing expertise and research excellence in personalised medicine diagnostics and contribute to expanding the medical diagnostics sector. With the strong emphasis on personalised medicine in the Derry and Strabane City Deal, the Randox Professor of Medicine will join us at an exciting time for the region.

“The University sees the ground breaking Randox Professorship as an opportunity to further our long standing partnership with Randox so that we might together have a unique opportunity to support clinical medicine, enhance the quality of patient care through highly relevant translational research and inspire the next generation of doctors.”

Professor Louise Dubras, Foundation Dean, School of Medicine at Ulster University, added:

“As we look forward to our first students arriving in August this year, we are excited to be progressing this role, the first of our “second wave”, to complement the exceptional staff team in place to deliver the first year of the programme. This is a unique and exciting opportunity for an inspirational academic clinical leader to shape the direction of clinical and translational research within the School of Medicine. I’m looking for an outstanding candidate with a wealth of teaching experience and a passion for related research which will inform teaching. This candidate will join me and the incredible team we have put together to teach the doctors of the future.”

Randox sponsors Féile Róise Rua Festival in Donegal

Randox sponsors Féile Róise Rua Festival in Donegal

Féile Róise Rua returns to your screens this year with an online festival programme including a live streamed broadcast from Árainn Mhór in partnership with Other Voices on the 15th of May.

Féile Róise Rua was set up in 2018 as a voluntary community based festival to revive the local music and song tradition on the island, in particular the music of local singer and song collector Róise Rua.

This year’s festival will include exclusive performances from some of Ireland and Scotland’s finest artists including Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Steve Cooney, Nia Byrne, Thomas McCarthy, Brian Danny Minnie, Anna Bean Uí Ghallachóir, Brìghde Chaimbeul, Griogair Labhruidh and Radie Peat (Lankum).

 

Viewers can expect to feel like they are at an intimate music session with these guests as they sing, play and interact with the audience throughout the live stream. There will be some new footage from musician and documentary maker Myles O’Reilly as he spends time on the island before the weekend. Viewers will feel as if they have travelled to Árainn Mhór to be part of the festival, including a live online singing session, dance workshops, song workshops and even a crankie making workshop.

Philip King, founder of Other Voices, said:

It’s just a delight  for all of us at Other Voices to be  partnering with Féile Róise Rua and to help bring a glimpse of this magical place to the world. As John Berger says “Songs can express the inner experience of being and becoming” and at Féile Róise Rua on Arranmore Island with songs and singing, tradition, translation and transmission at the heart of the festival, that’s exactly what happens.’

As part of the livestream the Féile Róise Rua community also hope to raise money for the local community centre which is central to life on the island and has been hit hard by the Covid 19 restrictions, causing huge loss of income.

Brian Mac Gloinn of Ye Vagabonds and a member of the Féile Róise Rua team, will host the sessions and said:

‘Between musicians and listeners, songs and tunes have their own space in the air, in our collective voices and in our imaginations. On the 15th of May, at Féile Róise Rua’s live stream, I look forward to sharing this space on the island, through our online connections, with a brilliant gathering of musicians and an audience all over the world.’

The festival is funded by the Arts Council of Ireland, Foras na Gaeilge, Ealaín na Gaeltachta , Randox, Donegal County Council and Three Ireland.

Aislinn O’Connor, Marketing Director UK & Ireland at Three said:

“At Three Ireland we’re delighted to be able to bring connectivity once again to Arranmore island – this time providing Ireland’s fastest network to the Féile Róise Rua Music & Singing Festival in association with Other Voices. So, sit back, relax, and turn the volume up on what promises to be an unforgettable weekend of live Irish music.’

 

It will be broadcast live via Féile Róise Rua and Other Voices on Facebook, Twitter & Youtube on 15th May at 8pm. For more information, go to www.feileroiserua.com or follow Féile Róise Rua on all social media.

For press enquiries please contact Amy Millar in the Randox PR team on amy.millar@randox.com or 028 9442 2413

______________________________________________________________________________

Fillfidh Féile Róise Rua i mbliana le clár iomlán ar-líne, agus craoladh beo ó Árainn Mhór i gcomhpháirtíocht le Other Voices ar an 15ú lá Bealtaine.

Cuireadh tús le Féile Róise Rua in 2018 mar fhéile dheonach phobail, chun traidisiún cheoil agus amhránaíochta an oileáin a athbheochan, go háirithe ceol an amhránaí agus an bhailitheora áitiúil amhrán, Róise Rua.

I bhféile na bliana seo, beidh ceol ó chuid de na ceoltóirí is fearr in Éirinn agus in Albain: Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Steve Cooley, Nia Byrne, Thomas McCarthy, Brian Danny Minnie, Anna Bean Uí Ghallachóir, Brìghde Chaimbeul, agus Radie Peat (Lankum).

Is féidir leis an lucht féachana a bheith ag súil le bheith páirteach i seisiúin cheoil an-phearsanta leis na haíonna seo agus iad ag seinm ceoil, ag canadh agus ag déanamh caidrimh leis an lucht féachana le linn an bheoshruthaithe. Beidh píosaí úra scannánaíochta ón cheoltóir agus ón déantóir clár faisnéise, Myles O’Reilly, ón seal a chaith sé ar an oileán roimh an fhéile. Tá súil againn go mothóidh an lucht féachana go bhfuil siad linn ar Árainn Mhór, agus iad ag glacadh páirte i seisiúin ceoil beo ar líne, ceardlanna damhsa, ceardlanna amhránaíochta, agus fiú ceardlann ar conas crankie a dhéanamh.

Deir Philip King, bunaitheoir Other Voices:

‘It’s a delight for all of us at Other Voices to be partnering with Féile Róise Rua and to help bring a glimpse of this magical place to the world. As John Berger says “Songs can express the inner experience of being and becoming” and at Féile Róise Rua ón Arranmore Island with songs and singing, tradition, translation and transmission at the heart of the festival, that’s exactly what happens.’

Mar chuid den bheoshruthú tá coiste Fhéile Róise Rua ag súil le hairgead a bhailiú ar son an ionaid phobail áitiúil. Tá an t-ionad lárnach i saol an oileáin. Chuir srianta COVID 19 isteach go mór air toisc cailliúint mhór ioncaim.

Deir Brían Mac Gloinn, ó Ye Vagabonds, a bheidh mar láithreoir ar na seisiúin:

Idir ceoltóirí agus éisteoirí, bíonn a spás féin ag amhráin agus fonn san aer, inár nguthanna agus inár samhlaíocht. Ar an 15ú Bealtaine, ag beosruthú Fhéile Róise Rua, tá mé ag súil go mór le bheith i gcuideachta ceoltóirí den scoth agus lucht féachana domhanda, sa spás seo ar an oileán, tríd ár nascanna idirlín”.

Tá an fhéile maoinithe ag Comhairle Ealaíona na hÉireann, Foras na Gaeilge, Ealaín na Gaeltachta, Randox, Comhairle Chondae Dhún na nGall agus Three Ireland.

Saturday 10th April 2021: Rachael Blackmore wins the Randox Grand National 2021 on Minella Times

Rachael Blackmore made history when she became the first female jockey to win the Randox Grand National, on Saturday 10th April 2021.

Upon Henry de Bromhead-trained Minella Times, owned by JP McManus, the odds of a victory for Rachael were 11-1.

Blackmore and Minella Times rode over 30 fences and were first past the post in the 2021 running of the world’s greatest and most famous horse race, beating Balko Des Flos, who finished second, by six and a half lengths.

“I just cannot believe it,” Rachael said.

“I don’t feel male or female right now, I don’t even feel human!”

Unfortunately there were no crowds at Aintree racecourse this year, in light of restrictions relating to the Covid-19 pandemic, but Blackmore was cheered on by owners, trainers, stable staff and racing officials.

An audience of 8.8 million tuned in to ITV to watch Rachael’s historic win onboard Minella Times.

Dickon White, Regional Director for Jockey Club Racecourses said;

“Minella Times, Rachael Blackmore and Henry d Bromhead have given us a story for the ages and I’m grateful that ITV have helped to ensure it inspires people across our society that it doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from, if you have a dream you should go for it.”

To mark Rachael’s historic win in the Randox Grand National, Randox Health are offering 20% off all health check programmes, until Sunday 18th April. Visit randoxhealth.com to find out more.
