David Budd, CEO of genedrive, said: “We are very pleased to have received notice of this contract award decision and look forward to the opportunity to engage with PHE and relevant authorities on future potential contracts. This is an early notification of the decision and we will update shareholders when we have more information on what this contract may mean for orders and revenues”.
