Diagnostic Evidence Co-operative London generates evidence to support the development of diagnostic tests.


About Us

Based at Imperial College London, we support diagnostics developers in the design and validation of new diagnostic tests – especially Point of Care Tests (POCTs), which are conducted near to the patient, rather than in the laboratory, and which produce efficiencies in time and process.


Industry & Innovators

We collaborate with industry and innovators to evaluate and improve emerging diagnostic tests and devices. Our access to world leading hospitals and extensive clinical networks, as well as our advanced diagnostic assessment methodologies, means we are uniquely positioned to support diagnostic developers.
