We provide a very broad range of diagnostics and monitoring products and services, spanning all sectors of the market: from small hand-held devices used directly by patients or healthcare professionals, to large diagnostic instruments found in hospital laboratories.
We believe it’s important to deliver smart medical solutions right now and develop innovations for the future and you can make a genuine contribution to these ambitions in your role as an Engineering Apprentice.
We are proud to have been accredited with the UK’s Top Employer award for the second year running. Our handheld devices empower patients to monitor their own chronic conditions easily and accurately and in hospitals, our products play two important roles - supporting laboratory services by providing accurate diagnosis of patient samples and enabling the rapid and often life-saving diagnosis of medical conditions in Accident & Emergency, intensive care or in the operating theatre.
