Medtech has supplied an urgent requirement of 5,000 reactions of SuperScript III to STO, today. This is a primary ingredient (enzymes) used to carry out Covid-19 RT-PCR tests in laboratories. This new shipment will ensure continued testing without disruptions, and will help to cope with the growing need for testing in the Maldives, due to the rapid increase in cases.
The shipment was brought to the Maldives in collaboration with our principle, Thermo Fisher Scientific, United States. Thermo Fisher Scientific is a U.S.-based provisioner of scientific instrumentation, reagents and consumables, and software and services to healthcare, life science, and other laboratories in academia, government, and industry. Medtech is the authorised distributor of Thermo Fisher Scientific in the Maldives.
The supplies were sourced in anticipation of increased need for testing nCoV19 due to a community spread in the Maldives. We appreciate the close cooperation and assistance from the government of the Maldives, and National carrier, Maldivian to facilitate the timely delivery of the shipments in this difficult and challenging time.
We are working together with our international partners and local authorities to ensure the continued delivery of medical supplies to the Maldives during this crisis.
