Behind the scenes at Randox Northern Ireland Covid testing site

Firm hits back at Channel 4's claim of 'serious failings'

Northern Ireland medical giant Randox has said claims made in a Channel 4 Dispatches investigation into its Covid-19 testing programme "grossly misrepresents" its hard work over recent months to quickly expand operations and play a key supportive role in the national effort to defeat the pandemic.

The programme, broadcast on Monday night, featured an undercover reporter who worked at the Co Antrim biotech firm as part of an examination into the Government's handling of the test and trace system. Dispatches alleged there were "serious failings" at Randox's Covid-19 testing lab, with potential problems with how samples, sent from across the UK, were handled.
