The DeepChek® technology is offered via unique Sanger & Next Generation Sequencing (“NGS”) based assays and a suite of software reporters and related databases offered to laboratories through highly secured systems in line with the highest international data protection regulations (e.g., RGPD).
Relying on a network of local professional partners covering 47 countries (https://www.abldiagnostics.com/distributors/) in Africa (Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa), Asia (Indonesia, Japan, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vietnam), Europe (Bulgaria, Croatia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Albania, Kosovo, Georgia, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Spain), Middle East (Kuwait, Qatar, United Arab Emirates), South America (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Uruguay), the ABL Diagnostics team can offer end-to-end solutions covering both Capillary Electrophoresis (SANGER) and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) workflows to small, medium and high throughput laboratories.
“We are extremely pleased to rely on a growing number of local distributors, trained on the ABL Diagnostics technology and able to offer innovative assays and end-to end solutions to microbiology labs on a worldwide basis” said Mr. Dimitri Gonzalez, Head of Diagnostics at ABL Diagnostics.
Christopher Busuttil, Chief Visionary Officer at Evolve Ltd (Malta) explained that: “Partnering with ABL to provide critical quality and dependable diagnostic tests on time and at the right price in these times of great financial instabilities and logistical problems was no easy feat. With determination and a focus on our philosophy of making a positive impact on society through science, the decision to exceed customer requirements and expectations was easier, even if it meant putting less focus on immediate financial returns. We are all grateful to do our part in combating Covid-19 and to continue being a key stakeholder in patients’ health.”
Aldo Vacaflores, CEO and founder of Bionova (Bolivia), said: “We started working with ABL to provide NGS solutions for our clients. In the short time we have been working together we already have clients implementing HIV NGS testing in Bolivia. We are sure that this collaboration will be very beneficial for patients and laboratories in Bolivia.”
ABL Diagnostics also keep reinforcing its commercial presence through new collaborations and customers in various Western European countries (France, Spain, Germany, Sweden, Denmark…) adopting the DeepChek® technology for various applications (HIV, RVS, BKV, Viral Hepatitis…).
The company is planning to strengthen its team to actively start operations in Asia and in the USA in 2024.
