- Disease and allergy test-kit supplier Omega Diagnostics said it had received a second purchase order from its new partner in China.

The order was for 28,000 units of its 46-panel Food Detective test, with an order value of around £0.4m.

It was anticipated that the order would be supplied by early November.

It came in addition to a first order for 20,000 units announced on 16 August.

'As a result of the work undertaken by our partner and our internal development team, our Chinese strategy continues to deliver ahead of the original timeline,' chief executive Colin King said.
