Hong Kong, 05 October 2020 – Since the announcement of automated multiplex diagnostic system (“The System”), a collaboration between Emerging Viral Diagnostics (“EVDL”), subsidiary of Avalon BioMedical Management (“Avalon Group”), The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (“PolyU”) and The University of Hong Kong (“HKU”) continues to be a hot topic in town.

On 11 February 2020, PolyU announced the development of the world’s most comprehensive automated multiplex diagnostic system which includes a fully automated machine and a multiplex full-screening panel for the point-of-care genetic testing (“POCT”) of respiratory infectious disease including the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Half year passed by, The System continues to receive positive feedback from medical experts and different market sectors. As a forward-thinking company, Avalon Group is proud to be part of this pioneer project, as well as to advocate and raise public awareness on the needs of rapid diagnostics.
