History of Omega Diagnostics Group

The company's global reputation originates from its beginnings as a manufacturer of tests for various infectious diseases, including syphilis, TB, dengue fever, Chagas disease, and malaria. It was founded in 1987 by Andrew Shepherd.

It has then diversified the products that they offer after they acquired Cambridge Nutritional Sciences Ltd and Genesis Diagnostics Ltd in September 2007. This acquisition provided the company the ability to offer food intolerance testing. In 2010, Allergopharma Joachim Ganzer KG's IVD division was acquired by Omega and this bolstered the company's capability to tests for more than 600 allergens.

Omega Diagnostics Ltd became the singular entity in 2018 as the operations of the 4 companies were restructured and combined.
