Dear customers and partners of Prime Diagnostics,

First of all, we hope everything is fine with you and your family since the outbreak of the corona virus. We realise that this crisis changed everyone’s daily life and work drastically. Therefore, we like to give you an update on the current operations of Prime Diagnostics.

Up until now we are able to continue our operations and we will try to continue this in the best way possible. In our laboratories we follow the RIVM hygiene, health and safety rules. When possible, team members work at home and in this way, we keep supplying diagnostic reagents to our customers.

We have also taken all possible steps to minimize disruption in handling and shipment of orders. However, for the shipments we depend on worldwide courier services and we do not know how deliveries will evolve over time. After placing an order, we will keep you informed on the actual date of departure and possible lead times.

Due to the dynamic nature of events our actions and responses may change. If in the cause of events we need to alter procedures which are important to you, we will announce this as soon as possible via website and e-mail.

Prime Diagnostics will try to support your needs for diagnostic reagents as best as possible under the current conditions.

In the meantime; please stay safe and healthy,

Mrs. José van Beckhoven, manager Prime Diagnostics
