“We have invested considerable resources into our production scale-up processes to support the increase in testing seen as a result of the global pandemic,” said Tom Lin, SpeeDx Director of Global Operations. “Enhancing our access to quality raw materials ensures we remain committed to maintaining supply chain security for our customers worldwide.”

The increased demand for COVID-19 diagnostics has in turn increased global demand for the oligonucleotide raw materials that form the basis of molecular diagnostic products. In addition to this supply chain burden, reduced flights and increased customs challenges entering Australia has complicated freight and delivery times from overseas suppliers. SpeeDx investment in local oligonucleotide manufacturing reduces supply chain risk and develops stronger sovereign capacity for critical diagnostics for a more robust national health infrastructure.

“As Australia’s experienced commercial oligonucleotide manufacturer with significant expertise, we are delighted to have this strategic partnership to supply custom oligonucleotides with highest quality and fast turnaround time,” said Rakesh Veedu, SynGenis Founder and Managing Director. SynGenis Chairman Steve Arnott said “The partnership with SpeeDx is a strong vote of confidence in the capability and capacity of Syngenis staff and operations and provides a significant platform for our future development.

In addition to securing local supply chain, SpeeDx investment in local industry serves to fast track the growth and expand the reach of SynGenis in the global diagnostic market.

Gode ferdigheter i å «lese», tolke og håndtere ulike møter med personer med psykiske lidelser tar tid å utvikle.

I løpet av de neste 12 månedene vil rundt 20 prosent av befolkningen i Norge ha utviklet en psykisk lidelse (kilde FHI), og riktig vurdering og håndtering er kritisk for en god bedringsprosess.
