The presentation of the ‘Flourescent Plate Reader’ - Professor Alejandro Madrigal and Sue Sollis
Research Boost for Tracy’s Lab
The Tracy Sollis Leukaemia Trust has purchased a vital piece of equipment which will provide an enormous advantage to processing blood samples for leukaemia patients.
The Plate Reader which cost £25,000.00 has been donated for use in the ‘Tracy Sollis Laboratory’ to enable Scientists to process samples quickly and easily. It will make a difference by processing, in an amazing two minutes, what would normally take approximately seven hours.

Sue Sollis, who Co- founded The Trust in memory of her daughter Tracy, travelled to London together with members of the Tracy Sollis Trustee Board to visit the laboratory. It is situated on the grounds of the Royal Free Hospital and is run by the ’Anthony Nolan Research Institute’.
The Plate Reader was formally received by Professor Alejandro Madrigal with Steven Cox BSc, PhD providing a working demonstration of its abilities.
Sue said, “The Trustees including myself were absolutely fascinated by its performance and the difference it will make. It is definitely a wonderful investment.”
