Who Are Pro-Lab Diagnostics?

Pro-Lab Diagnostics is a global biomedical laboratory. Our head office is in Ontario, Canada, but our subsidiary office is based in Bromborough on the Wirral in Merseyside. There is another subsidiary office in Texas in the United States.

Founded in 1974, Pro-Lab Diagnostics have been advancing biomedical science, knowledge, equipment and solutions for decades. We not only distribute products in the immunodiagnostics field, but we also manufacture, too.

Pro-Lab Diagnostic’s mission is to deliver today, and research for tomorrow.

Who Are We?

Whilst the parent company was founded in 1974, our branch was set up in 1995 as a production facility to manufacture staining solutions. This field has expanded extensively over the last 25 years, and we are proud to have been at the forefront of that growth.

Indeed, our UK subsidiary has also enjoyed phenomenal growth over the last three decades and are considered to be the leaders in our field of microbiology.

We have built up our lab to now employ over 25 scientists, technicians, business support staff and managers from the local area.

‘After 32 years I’m still very proud to lead PLD UK and work so closely with colleagues in Canada, USA and Europe…I will always be grateful to and immensely proud of the brilliant team we have at Pro-Lab Diagnostics.’- Mark Reed- General Manager


Our Work

Our European office proudly represents world-class manufacturers, such as IUL Instruments, DAS, Benchmark Scientific and i2a.

These partnerships allow us to provide a broad range of diagnostic and research related products.

We also have an alliance with the Animal And Plant Health Agency (APHA) for the manufacture of Salmonella Diagnostic Slide Agglutination antisera.

We deliver reliable, high quality, and cost-effective immunodiagnostic reagents to a global market by extensively researching and developing solutions onsite. Our specialisms include:

Pro-Lab Diagnostics is registered under ISO 13585:2003 (CMDCAS) as well as with both the Therapeutic Products Directorate (TPD) of Health Canada and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States.

Pro-Lab Diagnostics-On The Covid-19 Frontline

We are immensely proud of our team and the role they are playing on the front line in the fight against Covid-19.

The groundbreaking VIASURE SARS-CoV-2, Flu & RSV Real Time PCR Detection Kit, or VIASURE® Winter Multiplex CFR kit can detect coronavirus in patients in only 80 minutes. It is CE certified and simultaneously identifies SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A/B and Respiratory Syncytial Virus in respiratory samples.

We also have a test to detect antigens in human nasopharyngeal swab samples in just 10 minutes; The Proflow™ SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Test.

In April we were one of the first to supply rapid testing kits, sending 200,000 out to 34 NHS trusts. We worked closely with NHS Laboratory Managers, Public Health England, The Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) and The British In-Vitro Diagnostics Association (BIVDA) to achieve this.

MP for Wallasey, Angela Eagle, told the Wirral Globe in April 2020 “It is great that we have a local company doing such important work to help during this unprecedented time.”

We are incredibly pleased with our Covid-19 response so far and are hopeful for the future.
