About us

Established in 2005, RIC provides a reproductive immunology testing service for clinicians and other laboratories in the UK. We are the only laboratory in the UK that provides these tests in the field of infertility.

Our tests are performed by registered scientists with expertise in both flow cytometry and cell culture techniques. We pride ourselves on our fast and efficient service.

We believe that a better understanding of the role of the immune system in pregnancy is vital and to that end we are actively involved in research and development to ensure that the tests we offer are useful to both clinicians and patients.

The RIC Mission

The Reproductive Immunology Centre aims to provide a fast and efficient assay service of the highest quality for all its clients and to promote ethical research and development in the field of diagnostic reproductive immunology.

The RIC Team
