Hologic logo

Hologic is a leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of premium diagnostic and medical imaging systems and surgical products dedicated to serving the healthcare needs of women.

For the sale of every Hologic Rapid fFN™, Tommy's receives a £1 donation.

By using this test, a woman's doctor can determine the likelihood of pre-term delivery based on the levels of Fetal Fibronectin or "glue" in the vagina between 22 to 35 weeks gestation. This helps to identify the best way to manage the pregnancy.
