MEDIA for MYCOBACTERIA closes after 20 years manufacturing and supplying clinical and veterinary microbiology laboratories throughout the UK. With UKAS accreditation being implemented across the clinical sector, it was not economically viable for MFM to invest is modern equipment and quality standards on such a specialised but limited product range.
The timing was perfect for both companies to benefit, with Susan and Jacqueline now enjoying their retirement and E&O being able to combine their existing wide range of TB media and associated decontamination reagents with all the MFM indigenous formulations. E&O are now the leading UK manufacturer with all QC protocols compliantto UKAS ISO 17025 for allMycobacteria Medium & Reagents.
