The Awards

Inspiring Business of the year
Winning the Inspiring Business of the Year award is a significant honour for ImmuONE. This prestigious accolade reflects our dedication to innovation, our commitment to ethical practices by replacing animal testing, and our mission to make every breath safe.

The Business of the Year This North Herts award evaluates several key aspects:

  • Differentiation of our products/services from competitors
  • Managerial and financial performance
  • Potential for growth
  • Commitment to staff and sustainable practices

The Entrepreneur of the Year This award acknowledges the unique contributions of an individual who has either built a successful business from scratch or significantly improved the performance of an existing business. Judges look for unique skills, vision-driven growth, business performance, and the broader impact on the community.

Reason’s Behind Our Wins

Chamber of Hertfordshire CEO Donna Schultz said: “ImmuONE submitted particularly strong entries, with a level of planning and breath of contacts that our judges found very impressive. Their inclusion of figures and dates made clear that there weren’t just wishes but real goals and targets. Their commitment to training and personal development for their people is also admirable.”

“Abigail’s leadership through ImmuONE’s formation and growth has been nothing short of inspirational. Her inclusive approach to staff and nurturing of relationships with clients and partners has been nothing but key to the companies success.”

Focusing on Innovation at ImmuONE

At ImmuONE, we are committed to advancing lung toxicology through innovative solutions. Traditional animal models have long been the cornerstone of safety testing, yet they often fall short in accurately predicting human responses, leading to inefficiencies and delays. Our goal is to revolutionise this field with our cutting-edge assays and models.

Our assays combine safety with efficacy and mechanism, incorporating multiple endpoints in one assay to reduce costs and time. Alongside our cell models, ImmuPHAGE™ and ImmuLUNG™, we are pioneering advancements in lung toxicology with expertise in High-Content Image Analysis (HCIA).

Our focus remains on creating more accurate, efficient, and ethical testing methods that will pave the way for the development of safer and more effective products. With these awards fueling our drive, ImmuONE is more committed to making every breath safe.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to the entire ImmuONE team, our partners, and collaborators for their invaluable support. Special thanks to Pete Gooden for their support in helping us spin out from the University of Hertfordshire.
