Commenting, Simon Douglas, Chairman, Omega Diagnostics said: "This year has seen the final steps in the withdrawal from the Global Heath business through the divestment of the loss making CD4 business and the full relocation to our Health and Nutrition manufacturing site in Ely, Cambridgeshire. We have started our journey into the U.S. market and entered into two agreements with established testing laboratories which will be installing and validating our core food sensitivity testing product, FoodPrint®.

The year ahead will be our first full year with the focus on our Health and Nutrition business, where we can finalise our strategic objectives and start to gain momentum and create value for our shareholders. Such a change does bring its challenges, but one that is exciting and will be taken up with renewed vigour by the whole team. A new culture needs to be established, one that will allow us to focus on this core business and make it a success. Part of this change will be a new name, Cambridge Nutritional; Sciences PLC (LON:CNSL) and a resolution to change the name is proposed for the upcoming Annual General Meeting. This new name builds on our existing CNSLab brand and aligns with our goal to improve patient care through a more personalised approach to health and wellbeing."
