Taxagenomics 'no longer involved' in on-Island Covid testing

Dr Glover says decision was 'difficult but necessary'

The scientist who set up the Isle of Man's on-Island coronavirus testing says her company will no longer be involved in the programme.

Dr Rachel Glover announced on social media that Taxagenomics, which had been supplying reagents for the testing process, won't be working with the Department of Health and Social Care going forward.

She described the decision as 'difficult but necessary'.

In a statement to Manx Radio, the Isle of Man Government says it thanks Dr Glover for the support she has given to the Island in relation to its Covid testing programme.
