Taiwan Releases New In-vitro Diagnostic Test for Controlling COVID-19

A Taiwan Excellence Award-winning enterprise comes out with a new in-vitro diagnostic (IVD) as a part of long term development on smart medical on making quality healthcare accessible. This IVD disrupts the conventional test reporting workflow by combining the use of both PixoTest® COVID-19 Antigen Test and the PixoHealth Pass app.

The PixoHealth Pass app displays the test result on the users’ mobile phone simultaneously as soon as the hand-held size PixoTest® POCT Analyzer finishes analysis. The entirely digitalised journey shortens the long wait from testing to receiving a report within 5 to 15 minutes. This implementation could be greatly applied to building access controls.

Taiwan massively utilises infrared thermal imager in crowded areas to expedite the screening process for suspicious case screening and monitoring. They focus on high-risk facilities such as hospitals. The purpose is to have their personal identification linked to their travel history to effectively secure the admission measures.

The application of digital technology can be often applied to hospital infection control. Many patients with lower immunity are vulnerable to viruses and bacteria in everyday life, thus infection control becomes rather important. Along with the fast-growing medical technology development from the pandemic, the construction of a digital pandemic control ecosystem has become the trend of the times. Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) has established the “Taiwan Global Anti-COVID-19 Pavilion”.

The platform integrates all Taiwan medical advantages including medical resource supply chain matching service, public health experts’ analysis, Taiwan pandemic prevention course of action, and detection reagent and vaccine development updates. The combined power of Taiwan medical and pandemic prevention industry is looking to fight together with the rest of the world against this catastrophic pandemic.
