HistoCyte Laboratories Ltd Wins Award for Innovation

November 2018 saw the North East Innovation SuperNetwork recognise companies across the region for innovating in their respective markets. We are delighted to announce that we won the category for innovation in healthcare.

The meeting itself saw many companies presenting on their new products and initiatives as well as describing the journey they took on their way to success. We understand how difficult this journey can be so are delighted to receive recognition for our efforts. Initially shortlisted as one of five, HistoCyte went on to win the category for Innovation in Healthcare due to our development of novel cell line based controls in research and diagnostics and the subsequent commercialisation that has seen us generate interest around the world.

Self-funded, HistoCyte has relied on the ability of the team in-house to develop and perfect the technology. Having spent 20-30 years in this market, we had the right contacts and network to facilitate the commercial phase. Knowing the market and having excellent relationships with our customers, combined with the technical aptitude we have developed in-house, has meant we have produced product of high quality that meets the customer’s needs on every level.

Colin Tristram received the award on behalf of the team at the meeting held in St James’ Park, Newcastle upon Tyne.
