MILAN - FC Internazionale Milano and Lifebrain have announced an agreement which sees the leading group in Italy in laboratory medicine become Inter’s Official Lab Partner for the 2021/2022 season. Lifebrain will carry out Covid-19 tests on the whole Nerazzurri squad in a bid to counter and stem the spread of the virus.
"We’re honoured to team up with the reigning Serie A champions and become their exclusive scientific partner," commented Pierluca Cella, Country Sales Director at Lifebrain. “Lifebrain has always worked closely with athletes. We believe in the value of sport as a force of good for bringing people together. Contributing to the sporting world is really important to us, especially in these difficult times, because in doing so we’re doing our bit in achieving an albeit gradual return to normality that we’re all hoping for. However, if we want things to go back to normal, society must take all the necessary precautions. As Official Lab Partner of FC Internazionale Milano, Lifebrain will provide the footballers and the entire club with the support and testing necessary in order to enjoy a safe and trouble-free 2021/22 season.”
In partnering up with Lifebrain, Inter is collaborating with one of the frontrunners in its sector. Since the beginning of the pandemic it has played a pivotal role in Italy’s fight against the virus. Not only has it continued to guarantee accessibility for laboratory analysis throughout the country, but it has also supported the Italian public health service, patients and companies in the fight against Covid-19, by providing solutions and frameworks which help to prevent, identify and limit the spread of the virus. Lifebrain has carried out more than 5 million tests, highlighting the importance of its work. These include PCR, rapid and serological tests, which enable analysis of coronavirus sequences and allow for the identification of the main variants.
