After the phone call telling me I had won I immediately set-up a Wi-Fi connection. I've found the iPad invaluable for easy internet access, both at home and at work, and for keeping in touch with the latest developments in microbiology and virology. It’s a fantastic prize and I feel very lucky to have won!”

Amy has worked in the Microbiology Department at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for nearly 15 years. She currently works in Virology and does a regular rotation in Bacteriology, and she is a regular user of the Oxoid IDEIA™, Oxoid IMAGEN™ and Remel ProSpecT™ kits, as well as the Oxoid range of culture media.
