香港3月3日 - 香港生物科技協會(HKBIO)聯合多家生物科技公司和藥廠,在香港科學園舉行新聞發佈會,宣佈海康生命科技有限公司向社會無償捐獻其自主研發的“ERT- PCR 技術檢測新型冠狀病毒(SARS-CoV-2)”,供有需要的醫療、科研機構無償使用,並提供後期技術支持,這項技術向社會免費開放。希望透過這項檢測技術,緩解目前疫情防控中普遍存在的檢測不准確、假陰性率高、病人長時間等候等難題。

On 3rd March 2020 - Hong Kong Biotechnology Organization (HKBIO) cooperated with various biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies to hold a press conference in Hong Kong Science Technology Parks Corporation, announcing that Hai Kang Life Corporation Limited will be donating its independently developed ‘ERT-PCR technology for SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus testing’ to the community. The ‘ERT-PCR technology for SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus testing’ will be available for free use for all medical and scientific institutions in need, and if required technical support can be provided. By making this technology publicly available, it will be more readily implemented thus, effectively alleviating problems such as inaccurate detection, high false negative rates, and long waiting times for patients.


In the opening speech, Hai Kang Life Corporation Limited Chairman Albert Yu said: “Accurate diagnosis of potential viral infections is necessary in effective intervention against infectious outbreaks, and is especially important to reduce chances of transmission. It needs rapid accurate detection. We have donated our ERT-PCR technology, in hopes to provide our own strengths and contribute to the community. We are working towards fighting the new coronavirus epidemic in collaboration with all sectors in the community to protect the safety and health of the public. "

Hong Kong Biotechnology Organization and Lee's Pharmaceutical Holdings Limited distribute surgical masks to students and citizen

As announced by Hong Kong Biotechnology Organization (HKBIO) during our press conference on 3 March 2020, we will partner Lee's Pharmaceutical Holdings Limited to give out surgical masks to students and people in need.

In order to show support for students during their DSE exam preparations, HKBIO and Lee's Pharmaceutical Holdings Limited will give out 3,000 surgical masks to Yuen Long Catholic Secondary School (Yuen Long district), Pui Shing Catholic Secondary School (Tin Shui Wai district) and Ju Ching Chu Secondary School (Tuen Mun district).

It is currently still hard for the underprivileged to find surgical masks. Because of this, HKBIO and Lee's Pharmaceutical Holdings Limited will join together to help residents in those districts by giving out 6,000 surgical masks. Each resident will be able to receive 10 surgical masks (quota limited to 600 people). We hope, through this event, to bring people together to overcome the current hardship.
