Executive Summary

Abbott Labs has won a contract worth over £100m ($155m) to provide laboratory services to NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. The seven-year deal, said to be the biggest lab contract in the world, will see Abbott provide reagents for biochemistry, haematology, microbiology, genetic testing and pathology services.
