Due to our efforts in academia and R&D, the statuses of ‘Provincial High-tech Enterprise Research and Development Center for IVD’ and ‘Academician expert workstation’ were granted to Orient Gene.

In conjunction with antigen research overseas, domestic antibody production in Qingdao supports our global marketplace. Orient Gene continues to invest and expand its rising strategic platforms of biological raw materials, instruments, molecular diagnosis and liquid biochip technologies. Over 30 antigens and antibodies have been developed independently, of which more than 10 have been used in Orient Gene's POCT reagents. Its instrument developer, Changjian, has launched six IVD instruments, where one of them has been commercialized and another is undergoing registration. Orient Gene's Real-Time PCR reagent kits for molecular diagnosis have four NMPA certificates, and ten have acquired a Confirmation Letter from the EU. Our latest venture, liquid biochip technology, will provide multiplexing test kits with various targets focusing on tumor markers, allergen screening and cardiac markers.
