Abingdon Health launches Saliva Pregnancy self-test in Boots

YORK, U.K.: Abingdon Health plc (AIM: ABDX), a leading international lateral flow Contract Development and Manufacturing Organisation (CDMO), announced the launch of Boots own-brand, saliva pregnancy self-test across the UK and online, in partnership with Salignostics and Crest Medical.

On 20th March 2024, Abingdon Health announced the launch of the first two Boots branded self-tests – Iron and Vitamin D deficiency – in-store and online at boots.com.

In another step toward strengthening this partnership with Boots, Abingdon Health is now pleased to announce the launch of the first ever saliva pregnancy test under the Boots own brand range. The test is being made available in store and online at boots.com from Spring 2024 onwards. This product launch allows more people to access a new way of testing for pregnancy.

With the UK pregnancy self-test market expected to reach USD $56.7 million by 20331, this provides a strategic opportunity to launch, on an own-brand basis, an innovative product in this growing market with the UK’s leading health and beauty retailer. With general consumer adoption of self-tests on the rise (US $7.89 billion in 2023)2, and a robust pipeline of products within its CRO/CDMO offering, Abingdon Health is well positioned to continue developing OEM retail relationships within the UK and Europe as a value-add, innovative Private Label Supplier (PLS).

Chris Yates, CEO of Abingdon Health plc, commented: “We are delighted to announce the launch of the Boots branded saliva pregnancy test in conjunction with our partners Salignostics and Crest Medical. This launch showcases our ability to deliver innovative and disruptive private label products through our CDMO/CRO lateral flow full-service proposition with one of the most trusted UK brands – Boots.”

Guy Krief, Co-Founder and Deputy CEO of Salignostics Ltd, commented: “We are delighted to partner on this exciting opportunity for our breakthrough technology that has brought the first ever saliva pregnancy test to market. Boots is the leading health and beauty retailer in the UK and offering our saliva pregnancy test under their own brand label will drive consumer education, confidence and adoption of the platform.”

Matthew Courtney, CEO of Crest Medical Ltd, commented: “After the recent release of Vitamin D and Iron deficiency testing under the Boots family of products, the launch of the saliva pregnancy test is another terrific step forwards in expanding our portfolio and deepening our partnership with Abingdon Health.”
