Best in the Field
VeraSTAT-Improve your performance
As the best it’s field, the Randox VeraSTAT device allows athletes to overcome the limitations of other generation tests, providing accurate, cost effective and reliable results that will help users receive the care necessary to get them back on their feet and back to their best.
Monitoring response to exercise is vitally important to an athlete and trainer. While a heavy training schedule can lead to chronic immunosuppression in athletes, it is essential that they receive the appropriate care in the case of a dip in health state. Eliminating the risk of inflammation and infection is essential to preventing disruptions to practice and performance.
VeraSTAT Test Menu
The VeraSTAT testing menu is designed to monitor an athletes immune response to exercise. C-Reactive Protein (CRP) levels are used to guide the treatment of bacterial infections or inflammation associated with tissue injury and other inflammatory disorders. On the other hand, Mxyovirus Resistance Protein 1 (MxA) is used as a key indicator of viral infections. These tests used in combination, can allow healthcare clinicians to determine the best course of treatment and get the athlete back to full health
C-Reactive Protein (CRP)
CRP is a Key indicator of inflammation and stress, often resulting from the breakdown in tissues. Overtraining can lead to elevated levels of CRP in the body.
Myxovirus Resistance Protein I (MxA)
MxA is a key indicator of a viral infection which may impact physical performance and activity levels. Unexplained failures are often attributed to recent or current infections.
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.

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.”
