Since Mar 2020, G Lab has played an important role in the COVID-19 response in Japan, by facilitating PCR testing, and supporting Hokkaido prefecture and Sapporo city with their COVID-19 testing programmes.

Through this acquisition, the Eurofins network will further strengthen its position in the Japanese market, where it is currently the market leader in environment testing and non-invasive prenatal testing, by extending its service offering in BioPharma services and clinical testing in Japan, notably increasing its COVID-19 testing product and service offering to support the fight against the pandemic.
