Oxford Immunotec Global PLC, a public limited company incorporated in England and Wales (the “Registrant”), is filing this post-effective amendment to the registration statement on Form S-8 (the “Registration Statement”) to deregister any and all ordinary shares of the Registrant, nominal value £0.006705 per share (“Ordinary Shares”), registered but unsold or otherwise unissued as of the date hereof under the following Registration Statement:

Registration Statement on Form S-8 (No. 333-193730), pertaining to the registration of an aggregate of 2,684,563 Ordinary Shares, issuable under the Oxford Immunotec Global PLC 2013 Share Incentive Plan, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 3, 2014.
On March 3, 2021, pursuant to the Implementation Agreement, dated as of January 7, 2021, by and among the Registrant, PerkinElmer, Inc., a Massachusetts corporation (“Bidder”), and PerkinElmer (UK) Holdings Limited, a private limited company incorporated in England and Wales and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bidder (“Bidco”), Bidco acquired the entire issued share capital of the Registrant for US$22.00 in cash per Ordinary Share and the Registrant became a subsidiary of Bidco. Under the terms of the Implementation Agreement, the acquisition was implemented by means of a scheme of arrangement under Part 26 of the Companies Act 2006 (the “Scheme”).
In connection with the effectiveness of the Scheme, the offerings pursuant to the Registration Statement have been terminated. In accordance with undertakings made by the Registrant in the Registration Statement to remove from registration, by means of a post-effective amendment, any of the securities that remain unsold at the termination of the offerings, the Registrant hereby removes from registration all Ordinary Shares registered under the Registration Statement but not sold under the Registration Statement.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, the registrant certifies that it has reasonable grounds to believe that it meets all of the requirements for filing on Form S-8 and has duly caused this Post-Effective Amendment to the Registration Statement on Form S-8 to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in the city of Abingdon, England, on this 12th day of March, 2021.
