SEOUL, Korea, March 24, 2020 – Korea Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS; Former KFDA) announces approval of the global export of Genetree’s Ezplex SARS-CoV-2 G Kit
The approval by the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety will allow SML Genetree to supply global markets where the rapid spread of COVID-19 is driving the demand for more accurate and prompt diagnostic solutions in order to reduce the prevalence of this unprecedented virus.
Protocols outlined by the health authorities in the US, China, and WHO have recommended the coupled use of antibody test and Polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
SMLGenetree’s Ezplex test kit applies a real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method to the extracted mucus or trachea cell, producing test results in approximately 2.5 hours.
In addition, SML Genetree has previously developed STD 12 Type Real-time PCR and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). It has recently received approval by the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety for the 19 Type Respiratory Virus Real-time PCR and 6 Type Pneumonia Causal Bacteria Real-time PCR products.
