The Consul General of India, Dr Aman Puri, visited Newcastle upon Tyne yesterday which included a tour of laboratories at QuantuMDx Group Limited (QuantuMDx).
As a life science tools and diagnostics company, QuantuMDx is currently developing a range of innovative products including Q-POC™: a point-of-care, portable, molecular diagnostic analyser to diagnose a range of infectious diseases in under 20 minutes, depending on the complexity of the test.
India is a key geographical market for QuantuMDx and in 2015, Elaine Warburton OBE, our Chief Executive Officer, accompanied the Prime Minister the Right Honourable Theresa May on her inaugural overseas visit to the country.
“We’re delighted Dr Puri is visiting our headquarters in Newcastle, to see our Research and Development teams in action. As we prepare for commercialisation, India is a very important market for us and we’re cultivating strong links with partners and key opinion leaders in clinical and manufacturing settings.
“We’ve also recently undertaken visits to a range of healthcare settings in India, to ensure our products meet market requirements and learn first-hand from the experiences and knowledge of healthcare professionals working there.”
“We warmly welcome Dr Puri and look forward to fostering closer trade links over the coming months and years.”
