Launch of Abingdon Simply Test e-commerce website

York, U.K. 21 July 2022: Abingdon Health plc (AIM: ABDX), a leading international developer and manufacturer of high quality and effective rapid tests, announces the launch of its new B2C e-commerce website, .

The Abingdon Simply Test website will provide UK and international customers with Abingdon Simply Test and Abingdon-assured third-party branded self-tests. All products will be regulatory approved and manufactured under international quality management systems.

The e-commerce site has launched with a range of tests in areas such as fertility, health and well-being and infectious disease. It is Abingdon's intention to broaden the range of available tests, with a focus on self-testing.

The Abingdon Simply Test website will provide consumers with simple, jargon-free information to enable them to make considered purchasing decisions. All tests on the site will also have undergone Abingdon's 10-point evaluation covering quality, regulatory and usability requirements to provide customers with greater assurance on the quality of these tests.

Self-testing is a major growth area within the global diagnostic market and in its recent report, Future Market Insights forecast the global market for self-testing kits will be worth US $11bn by 2030(1) . Lateral flow testing has seen a significant increase in profile and familiarity following the rapid expansion of COVID-19 lateral flow self-testing during the pandemic. The increased awareness amongst the general public of lateral flow testing coupled with its benefits such as low cost and ease-of-use means that LFT testing will play a major role in the democratisation of testing and the empowerment of individuals to manage their own health.

Chris Yates, CEO of Abingdon Health plc, commented: "The healthcare landscape is changing and the increase in lateral flow testing during the COVID-19 pandemic has served as a catalyst for a paradigm shift in moving diagnostic testing out of the laboratory and into the home. Consumers are increasingly taking a more, proactive approach to managing their health and wellbeing and this is leading to the growth of the self-health and self-testing market. The launch of our Abingdon Simply Test site will provide focal point for consumers wishing to purchase lateral flow self-tests and will support people in taking an empowered role in managing their own health and wellbeing."
