NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, UK,  May 2022. QuantuMDx Group Limited (“QuantuMDx”), is pleased to announce that it has won the Innovation Award at the Medilink Healthcare Business Awards 2022.
The Innovation Award was awarded to the Company’s Q-POC™ platform, recognising the pioneering technology and design that has been developed and its potential to meet a serious unmet need as it provides accurate, high quality PCR results at the point of need in clinical and non-clinical settings.
The award is the latest to be awarded to the Q-POC™ platform, highlighting the innovation of the device and the achievements of the QuantuMDx team in developing the product and successfully bringing the platform to market.
QuantuMDx would like to congratulate the whole team on this achievement. The team continues to work hard on the development of the Company’s future R&D projects, including a multiplex respiratory panel, which is due to be launched soon.
Jonathan O’Halloran, Chief Executive Officer, QuantuMDx, said: “This award further validates our innovative technology and are a credit to our hard-working team. We are continuing to build on the momentum of the last year, during which we were pleased to receive CDTA approval of our Q-POC™ SARS-CoV-2 assay and the Company is now working to expand the menu of tests for Q-POC™ and further develop our technology. We will soon be launching our next assay, a SARS-CoV-2, Flu A/B & RSV panel, which will provide a differential diagnosis to enable rapid triage and patient stratification into the appropriate treatment strategy, in approximately 30 minutes at the point of need. We remain committed to providing accurate and affordable testing for healthcare professionals and are looking forward to providing further updates on our innovative product range in due course.”
