    Company overview

    QuantuMDx Asia Pte Ltd is a wholly owned Singapore incorporated subsidiary of QuantuMDx Group Limited facilitating the Group’s access Asia markets and Asia-based partners, facilities, distributors, manufacturers and specialist expertise. QuantuMDx Asia leverages QuantuMDx’s innovative diagnostic technologies alongside strategic partners in Asia to develop a pipeline of Asian-specific tests to support rapid and affordable diagnosis at the point of care.

    QuantuMDx Group is one of the most exciting life sciences tools and technology companies to emerge from the UK in recent years. Due for commercialisation in 2018, their signature device Q-POC™ is a low-cost, simple-to-use, portable diagnostic device for 20-minute diagnosis at the patient’s side. The robust device will identify the presence and strain of an infection, ensuring the right drug is prescribed first time, facilitating a more intelligent use of antibiotics. Further to this, globally distributed Q-POC™ devices will geotag and anonymise pathogen data, sending it to the cloud for real-time disease and drug resistance monitoring, and rapid detection and containment of pathogens.

    Q-POC™ is ideally suited to help address the humanitarian health burden by offering gold-standard molecular diagnostics at a fraction of the price of traditional testing. Once the device has passed regulatory approval it will be available for highly multiplexed diagnostic and drug susceptibility testing for just a few dollars, in any setting globally.
